Lenovo ThinkCentre A70z Brings All-in-Ones to Businesses
Lenovo announced yesterday in the USA, its latest ThinkCenter A70z, an all-in-one business PC. Slightly different from its consumer version the B500, the A70z is however a fully capable PC featuring a wide range of CPUs from the Usual Intel Celeron to the Core 2 Duo, has a DVD Multi Burner, 6x USB 2.0 ports, up to 500GB of HDD and a 19” 16:10 Monitor… This may definitively not be your everyday gamer PC but anyways it has never intended to.
Here you are a creepy / boring video from Lenovo giving you all the details needed on this A70z.
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC – November 2, 2009: Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) today reshaped its ThinkCentre business desktop line by introducing its first all-in-one (AIO) desktop PC – the ThinkCentre A70z. Built for the needs of small and medium businesses (SMB) all the way up to large corporations, the AIO delivers a compelling alternative to the traditional desktop PC, starting at just $499. Despite the budget-friendly price tag, the high performance all in one comes with Intel Core2Duo processors and delivers blazing fast boot up time as one of Lenovo’s Enhanced Experience certified PCs for Windows 7. The ThinkCentre A70z saves 70 percent more space, takes less time to set up and service and consumes less power than traditional desktops. At the same time, the AIO adds a new touch of style and sophistication for today’s modern office.
Lenovo today also introduced the ThinkCentre A58e tower desktop, bringing SMBs an affordable and reliable computing solution.
“We’ve heard from a number of IT managers in a variety of industries, from education, to finance to healthcare, and they’ve all told us they need desktops that conserve space, save on energy consumption and are easy to maintain and service,” said Dilip Bhatia, executive director, Worldwide Desktop Marketing, Lenovo. “The new ThinkCentre A70z exceeds these needs – not only is it compact, super energy efficient and quick to service, but it’s also high performance and extremely affordable.”
ThinkCentre A70z Saves Space, Time and Money
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.
