Lenovo has announced the ThinkCentre A70z, this new All-in-One desktop PC will be available by the end of the month with prices starting at $499. The system features a 19" LCD display, Intel Core 2 Duo or Celeron Dual Core processors, up to 500GB HDD, a DVD burner, and optional WiFi.
The compact ThinkCentre A70z includes a 19 inch, 16:10 widescreen LCD monitor packed into a 2.4 inch black frame that complements just about any office environment. On a desk, the AIO takes up 70 percent less space than a traditional desktop and monitor. It can also be mounted flush against an office wall, supported with a radial stand or rested against a leg stand similar to how a picture frame works. The AIO’s single power cable helps eliminate unsightly cable clutter that plagues office desk space, and the built-in handle on the back of the monitor makes transporting easy.
Saving on space doesn’t mean skimping on performance though. The AIO features:
Choices of Intel Core™ 2 Duo through Celeron® Dual Core processors for demanding performance
Direct X10 support for enhanced games and high-end 3-D applications
A DVD burner, six USB ports, two audio speakers and optional Wifi
An optional high resolution webcam and built-in Skype application for voice over Internet protocol web calling with friends and colleagues
Support for up to 500GB of data storage for lots of photos, music and work files
With simple set up, boot up as quickly as 35 seconds and up to 28 percent faster shut down time and easy access to the hard drive for servicing, the AIO helps save time all around, and businesses know that “time equals money.” The affordable AIO also comes equipped at no extra cost with Lenovo’s suite of ThinkVantage Technologies (TVTs). These value-added tools help businesses save money by speeding productivity and reducing downtime. Additionally, Lenovo’s Power Manager TVT helps organizations save energy by remotely deploying power schemes and global settings. The all in one comes Energy Star 5.0 rated for high energy efficiency, but for more savings, using the Power Manager helps save approximately $65 per year over previous Lenovo desktop and monitor solutions. To help reduce overall packaging material, the A70z ships with reusable protective bag. By using one box instead of two, material savings are equal to approximately 250 paper cups and 139 plastic packaging bags.
