Big things come in small packages
Lenovo on Tuesday announced the latest generation of its "Tiny" ThinkCentre desktop PCs. One of those new desktops is the ThinkCentre M93p, a small form factor (SFF) system that measures no wider than a golf ball (34.5mm), Lenovo claims. Don't let its small size fool you, the M93p can be configured with up to a 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor (Haswell) with Intel vPro technology.
Another option is that of a solid state hybrid drive (SSHD) to boost performance without sacrificing capacity. And though it's no wider than a golf ball, you can cram up to 16GB of RAM into the system. Alternately, Lenovo offers a bigger Small Form Factor Pro version with dual graphics and dual HDD support (M93), featuring the expandability and functionality of a mini-tower at half the size.
Lenovo also unveiled a ThinkCentre M93z all-in-one (AIO) desktop with a 23-inch Full HD 1080p multi-touch display and a ThinkCentre M83 enterprise desktop.
"While the world believed that desktop PCs would become extinct, Lenovo believed in the desktop’s evolution. This is how the original Tiny came into being," said Victor Rios , vice president and general manager of Think desktop, workstation, visuals. "The new Tiny takes this evolution to the next level. We are leading the industry trend of desktop miniaturization, offering new and innovative form factors, like Tiny and the new M93z all-in-one, that are still among the most powerful and energy efficient in the commercial space."
The ThinkCentre M92p/M93 is available now starting at $749. Lenovo's M93z desktop, with touch and non-touch options, will sell later this month for $1,269 and $1,029, respectively. And finally, the M83 will also be available later this month, starting at $699.
