The system includes a backlit rubber-dome USB keyboard and multi-button gaming mouse.


The keyboard’s lighting matches the system lighting; the lighting intensity can be smoothly adjusted with the rotary control by the media buttons.


The mouse has a number of programmable buttons, including handy “+” and “-” buttons to adjust the resolution on the fly.


The mouse also has removable weights so you can adjust the “feel” of the mouse to your liking. Lenovo includes a small tin for storing unused weights.


Other items include a power cord, a driver disk, and slender manuals for the system, keyboard, and mouse. Speaking of the system, let’s take a look at it starting in the next section.

    Reminds me of my 1st computer. A Dell of some sort. Came with the original version of Windows XP Home Edition. I kept that lemon just long enough to learn how to build a real computer, then I gave it away.
    As in free. Non-gratis. And never, ever, mention to anyone I gave it to you, or ever owned it kind of a deal.
    At 1500 bucks less, this Lenovo would make a good stocking stuffer for a 3 year old you didn’t especially like. Like that red headed, left handed 3rd cousin everybody worries about.
    But, I’m being kind.
    Take the $1699 this thing costs, go to your favorite e-tailer and piece together whatever your money can buy, then build it. Many, many sites have builders guides to show you how. It’s way simple, educational and rewarding.
    You’ll be ecstatic that you did.
