Manually direct power and performance modes based on your needs with Lenovo’s exclusive Q-Control  feature or choose to dynamically boost your laptop’s battery life with auto-adjustments enabled by new AI technology.
When enabled, Q-Control uses machine learning to monitor the tasks running in the background and your device’s thermal attributes to control its fans and optimize a longer battery life on its own. For example, movie watchers will appreciate the lower power mode with quieter fan, while content creators will enjoy the turbo-boosting mode for a quicker computing response.
The Lenovo IdeaCentre A540 is the new all-in-one Windows 10 desktop with a high-resolution screen offered in two sizes, 24-inch and 27-inch.
