“While more and more people are using mobile devices, there are lots of environments where desktop products simply make more sense,” said Lenovo Think Group senior VP Peter Hortensius, in a statement. “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, customized ergonomic features and a full Web conferencing experience.”

The ThinkCentre M90z will be available with an option multitouch display, enabling users to pan, zoom, rotate, and click just by touching the 23-inch high-definition display. The system will also feature SimpleTap software to enable users to control hardware functions like the microphone, camera preview, sleep mode, system lock, and volume. The screen also sports a normal glass overlay so it can be cleaned and disinfected with common cleaners, making it a good choice for healthcare and shared environments.

The ThinkCentre M90z will be available either either Intel Core i3 or i5 processors and will have a two megapixel webcam, integrated 2-watt speakers, optional Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless networking technology, and Lenovo’s ThinkVantage Client Security solution that works with Trusted Platform Modules to ensure security and easy integration into an enterprise computing environment.
