Lenovo Introduces New ThinkCentre M71z All-In-One Desktopby Saumitra Bhagwat on August 9, 2011 9:00 AM EST
Lenovo today announced yet another addition to it’s M-series enterprise class all-in-ones with the new M71z. The new AIOs are aimed specifically at large businesses, schools and government institutions looking for cutting-edge performance without compromising on space.
The new M71z’s feature second-generation Intel® Core™ processors with optional touchscreen displays and video conferencing, with select models offering solid-state drives for blazing-fast boot times. Other features include a DVD burner, optional Wi-Fi, 6 USB (2.0?) ports, a chassis intrusion switch and a DisplayPort for adding an additional monitor. The M71z is also quite environmentally friendly, boasting Energy Star 5.2, TCO Certified Edge and EPEAT Gold certifications.
The M71z starts at $599 with availability slated for October. If you’re itching to upgrade that school lab, or the conference room the wait might be worthwhile. The closest rival from HP is either an Omni series AIO or a TouchSmart series AIO. However, we'd need to see the prices and specs of the individual SKUs before we can start drawing any comparisons.
