Lenovo today announced new all-in-one (AIO) desktops with a simpler ergonomic design featuring optional multi-touch screens, improved cable management and new mounting options with the ThinkCentre UltraFlex Stand allowing for vertical, rotate and tilt movements including a fully flat position optimized for touch. Also announcing today, the ThinkCentre E73 and M73 desktops power businesses looking for traditional tower, small form factor and Tiny systems. Productivity and performance is enhanced by the latest Intel 4th generation Core processors, optional discrete graphics and new solid state hybrid drives (SSHD). WiFi allows easy connection to an enabled large display or notebook. All new models are Energy Star 5.2 compliant, use recycled materials and less packaging to save energy.
Despite the ongoing challenges in the PC market, according to NPD DisplaySearch, demand for all-in-one (AIO) PCs is at an all-time high. In Q1 2013, DisplaySearch reported record AIO shipments of 4.3 million units worldwide for a year-to-year growth of 25 percent. Lenovo continues to lead the AIO segment with 30.6 percent market share and continues to innovate with new all-in-one products, such as the ThinkCentre E93z, E73z and M73z announced today.
"Experience is everything, which is why we continuously evolve our commercial AIO desktops to be like nothing else in the business space," said Victor Rios, vice president and general manager of Think desktop, workstation, and visuals, "As touch expands from the consumer space into our work environments, ThinkCentre AIOs are poised to support the workforce with the most intuitive touch experience available in the market. Simple and ergonomic design, optimized cable management and the innovative engineering design of our stands make for a cleaner and more enjoyable workspace".
