I use a Lenovo T43 at my office. The Intel processor, comes out at 1.43 Ghz. The cons are that
1) the cd drive has failed (still under warranty, seven months old).
2) the modem socket has a collapsed pin, and IBM say the this is due to misuse, so will not replace it, therefore he only option seems to be a new motherboard at $95.
3) There are countless security checks which IBM have installed, including fingerprint identity, password protection, and this slows the start up time considerably.
4) There was an issue with one of the files in the Ati driver configuration, which caused a memory dump, although this is now cured.
I would, for the reasons above, not recommend this particular model. The one you wish to purchase may however, have been improved, and the issues (aside from the security) may have been remedied. The pros are that the size and weight are convenient, sound and graphics good, reasonable recovery program. There are also good wifi settings and monitors. Speed, following on from start-up, with this model is average.
Just trying to help with the experiences I have had. I hope this helps.

I had thought that the A52 was a laptop, apparently it is a full desktop, so a lot of my previous post may be irrevelevent.
