The ThinkCentre tiny form factor is equipped with the latest desktop

manageability features. It's the perfect desktop for users who need
superior computing power in a small package. Lenovo today also announced
the new ThinkCentre M92z all-in-one (AIO) and the ThinkVision LT2323z
wide monitor offering an improved VoIP experience.
"ThinkCentre desktops are evolving to fit the needs of today's
professional users, offering superior desktop power in a very
innovative, space and energy efficient form factor," said Lv Yan, senior
vice president, Think Product Group, Lenovo. "We designed the tiny form
factor so that businesses can enjoy outstanding performance and
manageability regardless of the size of their workspace."
"Lenovo's tiny form factor ThinkCentre M92p desktop PC illustrates the
fact that there is still room for innovation on desktop platforms," said
Zane Ball, general manager of Intel Desktop Platforms. "Lenovo has taken
advantage of the unprecedented performance and power reduction
improvements of our upcoming 3rd Generation Intel Core vPro
processor family, which will enable the industry to build smaller,
thinner PCs that are more secure, powerful and power-efficient."
ThinkCentre Goes Tiny
The ThinkCentre tiny form factor is the first desktop of its size to use
Intel vPro Technology and can conveniently be positioned on a desktop,
hung on a wall or mounted under a desk. With up to a 3rd
Generation Intel® Core™ i5 processor, the tiny form factor can fit in
today's shrinking office space without sacrificing power. The M92p tiny
also supports up to four monitors in Mosaic Mode or three independent
monitors without the need for a graphics card. Lenovo is also expanding
its accessories portfolio to include options specifically created for
the tiny form factor.
The M92p and M72e tiny form factor desktops include options for solid
state or traditional hard drives, integrated graphics and Wi-Fi. With Lenovo's
Enhanced Experience 3 for Windows 7 (EE3)1, the tiny form
factor enjoys a fast boot up -- 30 percent faster than non-optimized
PCs. Users can be confident their information is protected with enhanced
data protection with a TPM Security Chip and RAID 0, 1. With PC cloud

remotely on web-based system without the need for a mangement console.
