Lenovo announces Vpro powered desktops

It's the second generation

WITH PRICES from about £620, starting in April Lenovo's Thinkcentre M91p tower and small form factor PCs will be available, and then in June its Thinkcentre M91 desktop will also go on sale.

The Thinkcentre PCs will use Intel's second generation Sandy Bridge chips, with the Core i3 for the M91 and the Core i5 and i7 powering the M91p. Both the M91 and its p variant have integrated Intel HD graphics. The computers will also come with four DIMM slots for up to 16GB of DDR3 RAM.

They also will have USB 3.0 and SATA3 ports and support up to four monitors. They all have Lenovo's enhanced experience 2.0, too. This, Lenovo claims, uses "Rapidboot technology" to give users "on average" 20 seconds faster boot up compared to typical Windows 7 installs and saves a further 28 seconds during shutdown.

Clearly Rapidboot and rapid shutdown are important to customers wanting 48 seconds more quality time doing something else.

According to Lenovo, select small form factor Thinkcentre models will have options for a second hard drive. No pricing was available for these or other options. µ
