Lenovo N308 brings Android 4.4 to the all-in-one desktop PC

Lenovo-N308 (8)

The all-in-one Android desktop segment is getting more crowded by the minute. Following on the heels of the Lenovo ThinkVision 28, the new Lenovo N308 delivers the same idea in a smaller form factor and a much cheaper price. The Lenovo N308 is a 19.5-inch 1600×900 all-in-one Android computer powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 40s processor with 2GB of RAM, g-sensor, adjustable kickstand, 6 in 1 card reader, Bluetooth, 2 USB ports, multiple internal storage options and a 720p webcam.

The starting price of the Lenovo N308 is set at $450, but don’t be surprised if the final sticker price is over $600 after configuration upgrades.

We’re not exactly sure who would be willing to buy an Android all-in-one computer that doesn’t also act as a display. Would you be willing to pay $450 for a device that is essentially a 19.5-inch Android tablet meant to sit on your desk?

    I’d buy it. I’m a motoring journo and I spend a lot of time bashing out articles at launch events. I type them on my phone or 2012 Nexus 7, depending on the situation, but really I’d love to do that on a full physical keyboard. At $600 – a price I can write off easily enough for work – I’ve got no problem with that.

      Wondering If You could Simply Use A Bluetooth Keyboard?

      • mkstvns

        Yeah, that’s on my list of things to try too, hehe.

    Can we do programming on it?

    I don’t know whether I should be happy that the resolution is better than 720p or disappointed that it’s not 1080p.

  • donger

    Not bad.

    Hi I was wondering it said 4.4 but I still read on the specifications it is 4.2 could u tell us if this means it will have a upgrade for 4.4 to download once it is set up or is it on it already?

    Before anyone starts bashing me for anything I am new to this android system and this is for my daughter but just want to be clear on the topic of the article here. Ty :)

    Very misleading – from personal experience the N308 is heavy – lots of glass and bezel. Basically a 19.5″ screen inside something that could have easily fit a 21″ screen. There is NO KitKat upgrade, you will be stuck at JellyBean. The screen resolution is horrendous – normally apps look terrible – forget high resolution apps.

    There’s a 500GB HDD that can’t store you’re apps – go figure.

    I’d recommend to stay away – even if you can write it off as a business expense.
