Lenovo has introduced two extremely small desktop computers as part of their ThinkCentre business lineup. At first glance, the ThinkCentre M92p tiny and M72e tiny resemble nettop systems but don’t be fooled: these are full-fledged business machines with plenty of processing power under the hood.
The ThinkCentre tiny form factor measures less than an inch and a half thick (about the size of a golf ball) and is only 7-inches in depth and width. The tiny systems are the first in their class to use Intel vPro technology, a set of hardware features designed specifically for business applications.
The small footprint means the systems can be mounted virtually anywhere – on a wall, under a desk or positioned alongside a monitor like a traditional desktop. Do note that due to their small size, the systems don’t include an optical drive.
The M92p supports up to a third generation Intel Core processor and up to three independent monitors without a graphics card. Users can install traditional hard drives or a solid state drive, presumably in a 2.5-inch form factor only. Both systems include built-in WiFi, RAID 0,1 support and carry certifications for EPEAT Gold, UL Environment Gold, Energy Star, GREENGUARD and Cisco EnergyWise.
Lenovo ThinkCentre tiny systems will be available starting in June through Lenovo’s business partners and online at their website. Pricing for the M72e will start at $499 while the M92p can be your for as low as $799.
