Electronics major Lenovo launched the world’s smallest enterprise computers, continuing its efforts to strengthen the product portfolio for this segment. Lenovo’s going all-out on Ivy Bridge-based ThinkCentre pro desktop updates this evening, and the centerpiece is the smallest of the lot. The ThinkCentre M92p is not only tiny, it carries the word “tiny” in it’s name as well. Yes, it’s officially nicknamed Tiny — is about as thick as a golf ball at 1.4 inches and ready to tuck behind your display, but packs up to a third-generation Intel Core chip, vPro for IT control and your choice of spinning or solid-state hard drives.
Ivy Bridge is the codename for Intel’s 22 mm die shrink of the Sandy Bridge microarchitecture based on tri-gate (“3D”) transistors. Ivy Bridge processors will be backwards-compatible with the Sandy Bridge platform, but might require a firmware update (vendor specific). Intel has released new 7-series Panther Point chipsets with integrated USB 3.0 to complement Ivy Bridge.
Office space is shrinking and the trends in the enterprise PC industry suggest that an increasing number of organizations now prefer PCs that occupy less space and consume less energy yet perform at optimal levels. Lenovo ThinkCentre M92p becomes an ideal office and home desktop because of it’s tiny size and awesome processing power.
The ThinkCentre M92p, along with the new M72e tiny desktops, exhibits an innovative tiny form factor allowing it to fit in practically any space while maintaining first-class productivity with up to 3rd Generation Intel Core™ Processors. Lenovo has taken advantage of the unprecedented performance and power reduction improvements of our upcoming 3rd Generation Intel Core™ Processor family, which will enable the industry to build smaller, thinner and more power-efficient PCs moving forward.”
The ThinkCentre tiny form factor is the first desktop of its size to employ Intel vPro technology and can conveniently be positioned on a desktop, hang on a wall, or mount under a desk. The M92p tiny also supports up to four monitors in Mosaic Mode or three independent monitors, without the need of a graphic card.
The M92p and M72e tiny form factor desktop features include options for solid state or traditional hard drives, integrated graphics and WiFi. With Lenovo’s Enhanced Experience 3 for Windows 7 (EE3), the tiny form factor enjoys a fast boot up — 30 percent faster than non-optimized PCs.
Available in 20 and 23-inch models, the ThinkCentre M92z AIO provides a powerful and productive computing experience with:
- Choices of up to 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ Processor’s with optional Intel® vPro technology
- Up to 1 TB of storage with optional solid state or traditional hard drives
- Optional 1 GB discrete AMD Radeon graphics on 23″ touch-screen model
The M92z AIO, Microsoft Lync qualified, is built for business collaboration: a new 23″ IPS LED delivers 178 degrees wide viewing angle and a built-in HD webcam delivers a more effective VoIP experience, while a supreme anti-glare feature with multi-touch capability is available as an option. It also comes standard with Dolby Advanced sound enhancement for a rich audio experience.
With its built-in Wi-Fi technology, users can easily connect to the Internet and its enhanced tool-less design allows quick and simple system service and upgrade.
