Lenovo intros business-oriented ThinkCentre M90z all-in-oneBy Matthew DeCarlo
Lenovo has unboxed the ThinkCentre M90z, which is claimed to be the "industry's first large business-focused, 23-inch all-in-one" desktop PC. The new AIO doesn't stray far from the norm in core specs, with hardware including a choice of Intel's latest Core i3 and i5 processors, DDR3 RAM, a selection of both disk and solid-state drives, a DVD player, as well as optional Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
Some additional features include an optical touchscreen, a physical on/off toggle for the webcam, automatic brightness adjustment to conserve energy, an easily removable back for in-house tech support, and security features like encrypted storage drives. Lenovo has posted a brief video discussing the design process of the ThinkCentre M90z, and you can watch that on YouTube.
The AIO is currently available through business partners and it will be on Lenovo's site later this month. It's already used by the Center for Severe Weather Research, who brings the machine on the road when tornado chasing. Pricing starts at $899.
