Lenovo today announced the ThinkCentre A70 and M70e desktops - a desktop duo that gives customers a new, stylish design with powerful processing capabilities at a bargain price. Created for small to medium businesses (SMB), the A70 features the latest processing, memory and graphics performance at a price tag starting at S$887. The M70e builds on the A70’s platform with advanced features for greater expandability, stability and manageability for large business customers.
The desktops come in two sizes - small form factor or tower. They also sport a new modern black minimalist exterior design that’s both fashionable and functional. The power button, media and USB ports are located in easy-to-reach locations on the front of the PC, and a new top handle makes moving the PC easy.
The desktops exceed requirements for today’s essential computing tasks. With processing performance capable of running multiple applications simultaneously, users can create presentations, edit images, research Internet articles and send emails when multiple windows are open.
The desktops include:
· Processor choices of Intel Core2Duo, Pentium and Celeron processors. Core2Quad processors are available in the M70e
· Graphics choices of NVIDIA GeForce FX380 Quadro or Intel integrated GMA X4500 graphics
· High speed DDR3 memory up to 4 GB. Large hard drives up to 500 GB and up to 1 TB in the M70e
· Gigabit Ethernet and DVD burner
· Suite of Lenovo ThinkVantage Tools including Rescue and Recovery and System Update
The M70e includes an optional chassis intrusion switch and USB port disablement for extra security measures along with a stable hardware platform and greater expandability featuring an 8-1 card reader and up to eight USB and multiple serial ports. The M70e also helps customers control energy costs: It is GREENGUARD certified and meets Energy Star 5.0 specifications. Customers can use Lenovo’s included Power Manager utility to set and monitor desktop energy usage and can also opt to use an 85% efficient power supply.
Lenovo offers a variety of services optimized for SMB and large businesses, such as Online Data Backup to ensure data protection through redundancy, Hard Disk Retention to keep possession of data when decommissioning PCs and Priority Support to access technical support 24/7.
