Last week we told you that Lenovo had recently unveiled two new monitors and a desktop PC, which as we mentioned were targeted towards small-to-medium businesses. Now we’ve discovered that the company has just announced its new ThinkCentre M71z all-in-one desktop PC, which Lenovo says is designed for large businesses, governments and schools.
As noted in a recent press release over on the Lenovo.com website, the latest all-in-one ThinkCentre M71z comes with a variety of performance features including a second-generation Intel Core processor, advanced video conferencing features and a fast boot up time. In fact, select models (with an optional SSD) will start up in as little as fifteen seconds.
Consumers have a choice of processor up to a 2nd generation Intel Core i5 and up to 8GB of DDR3 SDRAM, as well as the option of up to 1TB hard drive space or an ultrafast 160GB solid-state drive. The ThinkCentre M71z comes with a 20-inch display, with the added option of a multi-touch screen. It also comes with a wireless mouse and wireless, spill-resistant keyboard.
The ThinkCentre M71z AIO comes with a variety of extra security and productivity features including six USB ports, a DVD burner, optional Wi-Fi, chassis intrusion switch and DisplayPort, which enables users to view digital video on a second monitor. The Lenovo ThinkCentre M71z also offers an optional 2-megapixel webcam and a digital array microphone.
Users will also have the ability to quickly adjust both microphone and camera settings during a call via the ThinkVantage Communications Utility. Lenovo ThinkCentre desktops not only use a significant amount of recycled content in their chassis materials, they also come with power supply units that surpass Energy Star 5.2 efficiency requirements.
As for pricing and availability, the ThinkCentre M71z all-in-one desktop PC will be available as from sometime in October, and will be priced at around $599. What are your impressions of the ThinkCentre M71z AIO?
