Lenovo offers VPro with new touchscreen all-in-one PC

The PC comes with a 23-inch touchscreen display

Lenovo on Thursday announced the ThinkCentre M90Z all-in-one touchscreen PC, which will be offered with Intel's VPro technology for easier management and maintenance.

The desktop comes with a 23-inch display and touch input for users to interact with the PC. The PC facilitates for easy replacement of components like hard drives without the need for tools, said Bill Dominici, product manager at Lenovo.

All-in-one PCs build most of the components in a single panel, except the keyboard and mouse. The desktop runs on Intel's Core i3 and Core i5 processors, and offers up to 1TB of storage. It can be configured to include Intel's vPro platform, a set of hardware and software technologies to improve system security and make remote management easier.

Using the platform, system administrators will be able to secure a desktop by remotely disabling systems and locking access to data. Through the platform, support personnel can also get pre-boot access to systems, which helps solve problems including disk and OS failure. Remote system maintenance can be done over wired or wireless networks.

The desktop is targeted at businesses, where touchscreen adoption is growing, Dominici said. Touchscreens provide a more effective input mechanism in certain businesses like schools and hospitals, he said.

The ThinkCentre M90z is available worldwide starting at US$899.

The company also introduced two workstations, the ThinkStation C20 and C20x, which will run on quad- or six-core Xeon 5600 series processors. The workstations support up to 96GB of RAM. The systems will be available in mid-June. Pricing information for the products was not immediately available.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
