    I would lean more towards the HP simply because speaking from my point of view and experience I have had more luck from HP computers, I have had quality issues with Lenovos. If you want a good quality touch screen windows 8 computer I would recommend what I have - the Toshiba U920. SSD is what you need for quick boot-up times, has the 3rd gen i3 running at 1.8 Ghz, 4 GB RAM, 12.5 inch touchscreen with an illuminated keyboard. Its fantastic, and its Toshiba, they make good products.

    I would go with the hp just because it looks like better specs for the price. Don't read too much into the brand: they all use almost all of the same components so go with whatever is the best bang for the buck. I thought Dell had some pretty good deals in AIOs too, check out Acer as well as they are one of my favorite companies for bang for the buck.

    I would say be mindful of HP products. Minus their LaserJet printers, a lot of their gear, ESPECIALLY their PC's and Laptops have very much been poor quality.

    Having owned both, I would side with HP only because their choice of materials is more substantive. Lenovo, like Samsung, uses too much plastic for my tastes. Sure, they're lighter but at what cost?
