LAS VEGAS -- Lenovo's pitching the C560 all-in-one, announced at CES 2014, as the ideal desktop for the whole family.

The computer is built around a 23-inch full-HD display available with or without multitouch support. It can be equipped with processors spanning from a low-power Intel Celeron G1820T to a quad-core Core i7-4770T; Nvidia GeForce 705A graphics with 1GB or 2GB of memory; up to 8GB of system memory; and up to a 2TB 7,200rpm hard drive or 2TB solid-state drive. And if you want to add more memory or storage down the road, doing so doesn't require any tools.


For ports and connections you'll find two USB 3.0, four USB 2.0, a multiformat card reader, HDMI-out, headphone and mic jacks, and Ethernet. A DVD burner and 802.11n Wi-Fi are also part of the package as well as stereo speakers with Dolby Advanced Audio. There's an optional TV tuner, too.

If all that sounds ideal for your family needs, prices will start at $659 when it's available in February. However, I'm guessing you'll need to spend at least $1,000 to get one with a fair amount of storage and processing power to do more than basic computing.
