Lenovo’s stylish all-in-one computer, the IdeaCentre A540 has been a fan favorite since its launch. It has proven itself a reliable and dependable device, especially for work-oriented tasks. Its design elements and color accents make for a great addition to any modern or minimalist office space.
A most curious device, the MSI Modern 14 B10MW-281 fills the gap between entry-level notebooks and premium ultrabooks. It is designed with the end user in mind, a user who appreciates portability first and foremost. A user for whom design is an integral part of his or her daily life. A conscious user who doesn’t enjoy splurging on resources he or she won’t ever have the need for. Here’s where this MSI Modern 14 steps in.
If you’ve ever wanted to ditch your old desktop for a more portable option, but without breaking the bank, the Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17IIL05 is an option to consider.

A true featherweight, the all-new ASUS ZenBook 13 UX325EA-DS51 is, perhaps, one of this year’s best budget friendly ultrabooks. It surpasses many of its competitors in terms of value for money, features and performance. But, as is the case with any affordable laptop, a few compromises have been made to keep its price down. While expected, these drawbacks are by no means deal-breakers.
