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.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
