If you own a small-to-medium business and you’re thinking about upgrading your current desktop PC and monitor, then I think we have some news that could well be of interest to you. Lenovo — the world’s fourth largest PC vendor — has recently unveiled 2 new monitors and a desktop PC, which the company says is targeted towards businesses.
The products in question are the 21-5-inch LS2221 and 23.6-inch LS2421p monitors, and the ThinkCentre Edge 71 desktop. As noted over at marketwatch.com, both monitors are extremely energy efficient — they exceed requirements for Energy Star 5.1 — and come with LED-backlit panels and a 10,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio.
The Lenovo LS2221 monitor includes DVI and VGA connections, while the LS2421p model comes with VGA and HDMI ports, 300 nits brightness level and a four-USB port hub built in. Both models also come with capacitive touch buttons, a tilt stand and a modern, slim bezel design. The LS2221 is priced up at $229.99, while the LS2421p will cost you $299.99.
Both models will be available sometime this month via business partners and the Lenovo.com website. Meanwhile, the ThinkCentre Edge 71 desktop — which features a glossy, polished front — is equipped with an Intel Core i7 quad-core processor and up to 8GB DDR3 memory, as well as up to 1TB hard drive or optional Solid State Drive storage.
The ThinkCentre Edge 71 also comes with integrated Intel graphics, or the choice of AMD discrete graphics with 1GB of dedicated memory, Gigabit Ethernet, DVD player / burner, six USB ports and security via HD password protection in BIOS and USB port disablement. It also comes with Lenovo’s suite of ThinkVantage Technologies, including Power Manager and Rescue and Recovery.
As for pricing and availability, the ThinkCentre Edge 71 desktop will be available as from sometime in October for a starting price of $369. Are you thinking of upgrading your desktop PC or monitor?
