The IdeaCentre K430 Desktop Computer from Lenovo is a unique desktop computer that provides a visual representation of just how much power is being used. This power control switch feature consists of three profiles Turbo, Auto, and Cool Running. With this feature you can avoid wasting power when utilizing non-power-hungry applications.

The K430 sports an Intel 3.40GHz Core i7-3770 processor along with 12GB of DDR3 SDRAM providing enough processing power to carry out multiple tasks simultaneously. With a 2TB 7200RPM hard drive you can access a large number of movies, videos, and other important files quickly and efficiently. The integrated DVD reader/writer makes watching movies and burning DVDs simple. Transfer data via any one of the six USB 2.0 ports or the built-in 9-in-1 card reader. For even more expansion options you can take advantage of a Universal Storage Module Socket conveniently located on the front of the computer.

Windows 8 is the installed operating system. Windows 8 replaces the traditional Start menu with a redesigned Start screen. The Start screen features tiles that update in real-time, which provide faster access to news, weather forecasts, sports scores, social network updates and more. Windows 8 also focuses more on cloud storage as well as apps, which can be downloaded from the Windows Store. Windows 8 provides a unique user experience.

Smart Power
The K430 sports a color-coded, three-speed power control switch making it possible to visualize how much power your computer is using.
Turbo: The red-gear zone is perfect for power-hungry games and graphics-intensive applications.
Auto: The blue-gear zone is just right for occasions when you need some power, but not break-neck speed.
Cool Running: The green-gear zone is a power-sipping, frugal mode. Downshift to green when you want to check e-mail, surf the Web, or perform other low-demand tasks.
Fully Customizable
The IdeaCentre K430 desktop computer makes it easy to tailor your computer to your needs. It's specifically designed to make upgrades and enhancements easy, offering multiple slots for disc drives, extra memory, and more.

Open your computer without a screwdriver with the intuitive too-free design. Simply twist the special screw grips to open up the chassis by hand. Disc drives and hard drives easily slip in and out of the slots, while a buckle design lets you change graphics and sound cards with a simple "catch."
Versatile Connectivity
The K430 has been engineered to make connecting to other devices a snap, and transferring data fast and easy. The IdeaCentre K430 is loaded with ports, a multi-card reader, and the unique USM (Universal Storage Module) dock for use with portable storage. You're even covered in case something goes wrong with the Lenovo Rescue System making it possible to recover your data with the touch of a single button.
The Redesigned Start Screen
Windows 8 introduces a new Start screen, which has all the information you need in one place. The traditional Windows desktop screen has been replaced with a more tablet style design featuring tiles. These tiles are customizable to your liking as well as update in real time. News, weather forecasts, sports, contacts, apps and more are available for you to use. It's all right there on the Start screen. If you prefer the traditional Start screen of Windows 7, you have the option to switch to it

To the Cloud
With Windows 8, when signed in using your Microsoft account, you'll have instant access to your personal Start screen, themes, language preferences, browsing history and browser favorites. You can also connect to services such as Microsoft Outlook, Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter and more

Windows Store
In the Windows Store you can search for or browse thousands of apps. Choose from the featured apps or grab one of the most frequently downloaded apps to see what all the hype is all about. You can also see how other people rate apps. For certain apps, you can try it out before you buy it so you can make sure you absolutely want an app before you spend your hard-earned money on it

    Comments about Lenovo IdeaCentre K430 Desktop Computer:

    I use this product for gaming and for running engineering software. The speed of the machine is amazing and will boot up in seconds. Windows 8 is great even without a touch screen monitor, however, they still haven't added support for hdmi connections with Windows 8, so you'll have to either dig around for a fix or wait for one from the company.

      Comments about Lenovo IdeaCentre K430 Desktop Computer:

      I needed a new desktop with the power to handle photo and video editing and was not disappointed with this Lenovo desktop. The performance is excellent and meets my needs. Storage at 2Tb is adequate. USB3 ports are essential for attaching my backup. Memory at 12Gb was OK, but I decided to upgrade to 16Gb. It was eay to do and it does make a difference. Overall I would recommend
