Lenovo goes big on small, debuts ThinkCentre Tiny desktops and new all-in-ones

Lenovo ThinkCenter Tiny M92p desktop

Lenovo has announced two new tiny computers that will find a place in the company’s line of ThinkCentre business desktops. Known as the M92p Tiny and M72e Tiny, the systems are less than an inch-and-a-half tall and only 7-inches in width and depth. This makes them no larger than the company’s IdeaCentre Q180 consumer nettop.

Unlike the Q180, these business-oriented desktops won’t offer an optical drive, but they more than make up for that by using Intel’s latest third-generation Core processors instead of a woefully inadequate Atom CPU.

Both the M92p and M72e will have standard Intel integrated graphics, Wi-Fi, a TPM security chip and support for both virtualization (including PC Cloud Manager web-based IT software) and RAID (0,1). Solid state drives are an option for both. The M92p will additionally support up to four monitors in “Mosaic Mode,” or up to three fully independent monitors. The M72e starts at $499 while the entry-level M92p clocks in at $799.

Lenovo Edge92z all-in-one PC

In addition to the desktops, Lenovo has taken the wraps off the ThinkCentre Edge 92z all-in-one. Featuring a 21.5-inch display, the Edge 92z packs solid performance into a small space. Its features include support for third-generation Intel Core processors (up to the Core i7) and optional discrete graphics. VOIP optimization is a major selling point for this all-in-one. It includes an array microphone, a high-definition webcam and built-in echo/noise suppression. Multi-touch support is optional and Lenovo says it is certified for use with the touch functionality of Windows 8, which is still at least several months away from launch. No pricing information is available.

Lenovo M92z all-in-one PC

Confusingly, the ThinkCentre M92z has also been announced — in two different flavors. The 20-inch version is being billed as the world’s smallest vPro capable all-in-one, while the 23-inch version is rightfully bragging about its inclusion of an IPS display. Both sport the same VOIP optimization as the Edge 92z and ship with third-generation Intel Core processors. Prices start at $799.

Lenovo LT2323z

Last, and perhaps least, is the ThinkVision L2323z, a 23-inch IPS monitor with the same VOIP optimization features as the Edge 92z and M92z. Pricing is not yet announced.

All of the products announced today should be available “beginning in June.”
