The A740 is a new All-in-One from Lenovo that has only a 4mm thin display – making it one of the thinnest 27-inch All-in-Ones around. I am a huge fan of All-in-Ones and the A740 has really caught my attention. The A740 comes packed with the latest technology you would expect for a high-performance AIO: a (optional) WQHD 2560X1440 display with a wide 178-degree viewing angle, NVIDIA GeForce graphics, JBL speakers and Dolby Home Theater, up to 1TB of hard drive storage, NFC, 802.11 AC Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HDMI-in support, an optional TV tuner and comes with Windows 8.1.
