Pros: Best price (paid a penny less than $7C on Newegg; don't know what happened, but Newegg now has this unit for 839 and Amazon has it for 899!?! - got lucky, I guess), good packing, free delivery (on time), no tax.
Good useable manual, well written and understandable.
Nice classic, utilitarian styling, not gaudy.
Fast! The "throttle" actually seems to work and is not just a gimmick.
Great hardware combination, but see Cons.
Lenovo maintenance software is useful.
Tower is easy to open and close, and interior is not cluttered; good hard drive caddies.
Quiet - not silent, but not noisy either.
Good mix of USB ports, with one of the 3.0 ports always on.
Good mix of card readers.
Good front layout of USBs card readers, and audio jacks.
Mouse and keyboard are basic; keyboard has a nice feel and a couple of unique lenovo features.

Cons: 280 watt power supply seems a little skimpy; I am used to 400-600 watt PSUs with a new desktop. But then power requirements have been reduced in recent years. Still - seems just adequate to support only the current configuration.
As usual, rear USB ports are slam up against one another - no fat connectors allowed.
A little bloatware, easily removed.
While the side panel is easy to remove and re-install, one ever-so-slight crinkle will end that. Too may delicate sliding connectors. This panel is not hinged as the photos would suggest.

Other Thoughts: I like it and would recommend it to a friend. If I have any serious problems in the next 90 days, I will come back and revise this review. My plans for it include the installation of a Samsung solid state drive, and using that drive for the OS and programs, and the 1tb oe spindle drive for storage.

I was looking for a destop with capability to expand and to play video games on, since my XP wasn't adequate anymore. I find this computer to meet my expectations. I'm not real crazy about Windows 8, but with the free upgrade to 8.1, it's OK, and with a download, I can go straight to the desktop without going to the Start Screen first. Overall I am quite pleased with my purchase of Lenove IdeaCentre K450 Desktop.

here are a few tips which will save you a lot of headaches. The PC is great but does not play well with windows 8.1, after upgrade the monitor stuck on blank screen! Use usb flash drive to boot and rescue.

tips:
Most important, right after installation of the new PC, create a 16G recovery disk USB, this will save you much pain and time. (click Windows key, on search type create disk recovery )
Install Navidia graphic update drivers.
Keep the Lenovo driver disk handy, you might need to restore some drivers, VGA.

Final words: it seems windows 8.1 creates issue in VGA graphic in booting and causes blank screen problem perhaps corrupting the boot drive.
otherwise, beside this software, hardware interaction glitch, the Lenova K450 is a dream machine, I have another earlier version running smoothly now for 6 months.
