Lenovo today announced the latest additions to its ThinkCentre desktop PC line designed for business users.
The ThinkCentre E63z packs essential features and affordable performance into a thin all-in-one form factor. Lenovo also introduced a new member of its small "Tiny" series with the M53 desktop PC. The M53 features Intel Pentium power, wireless connectivity and the USB keyboard power-on technology allowing the user to power up from a keyboard. In addition, Lenovo’s new ThinkCentre M79, available in mini tower or small form factor, includes Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 for security and remote management capability.
Designed with businesses, these desktops now feature Smart USB Protection giving users or IT managers the ability to control access and usage of USB ports, and Solid State Hybrid Drive (SSHD) support to boost system performance. Also common are energy saving certifications including Energy Star 6.0 and EPEAT ratings.
The slim E63z features Smart USB Protection, CompuTrace support and a Kensington slot that doubles as a chassis lock. The 19.5 inch HD+ WLED screen, also available with touch, includes an integrated camera optimized for voice over IP and stereo speakers. Models powered by Intel Core i3 processors also include HDMI out port, a card reader and a Rapid Charge USB port to keep your mobile devices powered up. It is available now starting at $479 with Intel Core i3 models available later in the year.
Offering the same "Tiny" form factor as its high powered brothers, the M73 and M93p, the ThinkCentre M53 also includes the remote power up option with a supported keyboard and flexible mounting solutions. It also shares accessories and power connectors with other "Tiny" desktops. A free system management tool (PC Cloud Manager 3.0) is included and Intelligent Cooling Engine (ICE) 3.0 that optimizes system cooling and fan acoustics. The ThinkCentre M53 tiny desktop will be available shortly starting at $439.
Equipped with the latest AMD A-Series Accelerated Processing Units (APUs), the ThinkCentre M79 offers up to 50% graphic performance enhancement over predecessors. SSD or SSHD options further boost system performance and both small form factor and mini tower models can support three independent displays with the optional second DisplayPort connector.
The M79 features the same Smart USB Protection of the other models but also includes TPM 1.2 for enhanced data protection to keep files safe. Users can also remotely manage their desktop through the enhanced management capability of DASH (Desktop and Mobile Architecture for System Hardware) 1.1. ThinkCentre M79 also features the same ICE 3.0 of the M53. The ThinkCentre M79 is available now starting at $449.
