      The Lenovo IdeaCentre 310s desktop is a mid-level, moderate use configuration, with its AMD A9-9430 processor. This Dual-Core processor has a base speed of 3.2GHz and a boost speed of up to 3.5GHz. This configuration has 4GB of DDR4-2400MHz RAM. It is good with Microsoft Office type programs, internet browsing and other moderate work. If you are experiencing slower performance, be sure any software you installed is compatible with Windows 10. There is no need to install Microsoft Office software. The software is already part of the operating system, you just need to activate the software with a purchased product key. If you have installed a copy of Microsoft Office, this is conflicting with the existing copy on the system and this will slow your system down. If you have installed a 3rd party anti-virus program, be sure that Windows Defender is turned off and that the trial version of McAfee Anti-Virus software is uninstalled. There can only be one anti-virus program on the system. You may need to restore your system to original factory default settings if any of the programing errors have occurred. You can do that by typing "restore" in the Cortana search window. Just click on the magnifying glass icon at the bottom left of your Windows 10 Desktop. Click on "Reset This PC" Then click on "Get Started" and follow the on screen directions to restore to factory defaults.

    great deal for basic computing needs

    Bought this when it was on sale for $279.99. I chose the Lenovo brand because at my company, we use Lenovo laptops. Initial setup was easy, and it fulfills all my basic needs (browsing, Microsoft Office - especially for Word and Excel, and iTunes). This PC also supports dual screen monitors, which is quite useful for work related purposes, but make sure you have the right cables to connect them to the PC. Also, I'm still deciding if I should continue with McAfee or consider the Trend Micro antivirus that Best Buy provides. My only real gripe at this PC is sometimes opening up Word or Excel can be kind of slow (maybe because of the existing file I'm opening and its size). It is also slightly slow when opening up Google Chrome. Other than that, this is very good for the price I paid for at $279.99

    Got this for a good price, Have had issues with it's wifi, finally hardwired it. Machine is slow, they should probably ship it with more ram. If I had it to do over again, I would probably have bought an Apple computer. I guess if you just need a REAL basic computer with no need for speed, buy it.

    I bought this desktop computer for my office, I am self employed and figured that it would do the job for the basic everyday work stuff (spreadsheets, email, web browsing). It does, but the computer is really slow and quite frankly, very noisy. The fan is ALWAYS on and you can hear the hard drive turning every time. And I only have the Edge web browser open on a single page and one spreadsheet or word document at a time. I should have known because it has an AMD processor and it's not as easy to know if it's a fast or slow one, like with Intel where you can see if it's i3, i5 or i7. I can recommend it for a high school or university student, but they might be disappointed as well. The good thing is that I can upgrade the RAM and maybe that will speed it up.

    Good computer.. do "Fresh Start" and upgrade parts

    Posted

    This is a decent computer, after some minimal work (depends on your experience with IT). We bought this computer for my company (under a different login) about 2 weeks ago, basically to do VERY simple tasks. We will run a few different shipping programs, do web browsing/email, and some file shares. . again, nothing that will really tax the computer. It works great for that, but I can't say how bigger programs would run. PROS: -CAN BE a pretty quick computer. . see recommendations below. -Small form factor/lightweight. Can fit anywhere -Inexpensive compared to others -Looks nice, and seems somewhat sturdy -Can add more RAM CONS: -No internal fan... hmmm.... Sure there is a very very small one on top of the processor, but nothing pushing or pulling the hot air out of the case. This will SLOW the computer down or make it crash as well. I'm surprised the manufacturer didn't add one, since it probably would avoid a lot of people going through warranty/call centers for an overheated/malfunctioning computer. -Wifi antenna/connector seems delicate, but I haven't had issues with it connecting yet. The antenna panel is oddly placed, and blocks anything being inserted into the PCI Express slot. Once moved, it leaves an open hole in the case, letting excess dirt/dust in, but you can at least use the express slot after. -Only 1 mount for 2.5" hard drive/only 2 SATA plugs. The CD drive uses one SATA, and you can "technically" place a second hard drive, but you'll lose the CD drive. RECOMMENDATIONS: -First things first, clean off the bloatware ASAP. Windows 10 has something built into the software, called "Fresh Start". This re-installs windows 10 without most of the 3rd party apps from Lenovo or other mysterious companies. This will improve speeds drastically. Go through the initial setup of your computer, and Google search how to do it. It'll take you 5-10 mins, then walk away as it installs for an hour. -Add AT LEAST another 4GB RAM stick ($15-$20). 4GB just isn't enough for most tasks. Well worth the effort and inexpensive cost! -Add some sort of internal fan IF you can find the right size. I have to re-measure the mount holes, but fans can usually be inexpensive. The motherboard already has 2 empty plugs and 2 mounting points on the case, specifically for fans. This will extend the life of the computer greatly. -Move the Wifi antenna panel if you have any desire to use the PCI Express slot. . again, it was originally placed in a weird spot. You can also get a better Wifi Card if you are having issues. . You can use one of the PCI express slots or just put it back into the same M.2 slot. All-in-all. . For the price, the computer isn't bad. This IS NOT made to be a high-end, lightning-fast computer. However,if you buy it knowing that, then you'll be happy. You don't have to use any of my recommendations, but I would at least increase the RAM if you want to do anything on the computer a little quicker. Only 4GB of RAM just shouldn't be a standard in 2019.
