The solid and affordable Lenovo IdeaCentre AIO 5 24IOB6 has everything a good all-in-one PC needs. […]
With the Lenovo IdeaCentre AIO 5 24IOB6, the monitor and PC unit are neatly separated from each other. The computer is in a small box, about three centimeters high and 24 centimeters wide, which serves as a base for the AIO and gives it a very secure stand. All connections such as the HDMI and USB ports are located on the display, with all cable connections running through a narrow metal support to the PC unit.

Qi charging with 15 watts
The monitor support is attached to the side of the base, which, unlike the Asus Zen Aio 24 M5401, also has a practical use. Our test configuration F0G3002LG houses a charging station in the stand, which can wirelessly charge Qi-enabled smartphones with up to 15 watts. An LED on the front side indicates the status, such as whether the mobile device is currently charging.
The 23.8-inch (about 60 cm) IPS panel of the Lenovo AIO has a resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels, shone brightly on average 233 cd / m2 and impressed in the test with very well-coordinated image parameters. Optionally, the panel is also available as a touch version. The 1080p webcam can be recessed in the monitor frame and allows a biometric login via Windows Hello. In terms of interfaces, the Lenovo IdeaCentre AIO 5 24IOB6 and the all-in-one PC from Asus were the two best-equipped devices in the test. In addition to an HDMI input and output, there is an Ethernet port on the back as well as two USB 2.0 ports, for example for the supplied mouse and keyboard. In addition, there are three USB 3.2 Gen.2 ports for fast data transfers of up to 20 Gbit/s, two of which are easily accessible on the left side of the monitor.
In the maximum configuration, the IdeaCentre AIO 5 24IOB6 uses the Intel eight-core Core i7-11700T, 16 GByte RAM and the Nvidia Geforce MX450 as a dedicated graphics card. In the DACH region, Lenovo only offered its all-in-one PC with the Intel six-core Core i5-10400T or Core i5-11400T at the time of testing. For typical workloads that occur in the (home) office, both deliver more than enough performance.
In terms of volume, the Lenovo IdeaCentre AIO 5 24IOB6 was not completely convincing in the test, which pushed its operating rating down. If you used the all-in-one PC for less computationally intensive tasks such as Word, Excel, web surfing or video chats, nothing was heard from the case fan and the work was wonderfully relaxed. However, the fan turned up sharply under load and increased up to 50.5 dB(A) in the Cinebench stress test. In addition, he constantly changed his speed and ran pretty restless. However, a future firmware update could help to tame the noisy fan.
