Lenovo expands desktop range

Lenovo has announced five new desktop PCs including a 23-inch all-in-one desktop, aimed at businesses.

The once IBM and now Chinese-owned computer maker is also introducing what is says are two 'first of their kind' monitors: The first port replicator monitor - the Lenovo L2230x wide – attaches to ultraportable laptops in the workplace - which isn't a bad idea.

The ThinkVision L2321x wide is the first 'duo' display monitor, combining two screens into one for multitasking and running legacy applications using a wide-screen display.

The ThinkCentre M90z all-in-one packs its dektop components into the 23-inch display. It comes equipped with a choice of the latest Intel Core i5 and i3 processors, DDR3 memory, a selection of hard drives or a solid state drive, plus DVD player and optional WiFi/Bluetooth.

"We believe all-in-one is the future of desktops, so we created the ThinkCentre M90z to deliver everything large enterprise customers need: no compromised performance, customised ergonomic features and a full web conferencing experience," said Lenove VP Peter Hortensius.

Lenovo's ThinkStation C20 and C20x workstations are ultra-compact, intergating Lenovo-designed features such as a patented slim, rotatable optical drive and a tri-channel cooling system. The workstations offer a choices of Intel Xeon 5600 Series processors, up to 96GB of DDR3 memory on the C20x with 12 available DIMM slots, up to two NVIDIA FX4800-class graphics cards and native SAS support on the C20x.

The ThinkCentre M90z all-in-one is available now through Lenovo dealers and later this month on www.lenovo.com with models starting at approximately £820.

The ThinkStation C20 and C20x workstations will be available in mid-June, with models of the C20 on the web starting from £1,691.

The Lenovo L2230x Wide will be available in mid-July and the ThinkVision L2321x Wide monitor at the end of July through web and business partners, with prices starting from £210 and £240 respectively (exc VAT).
