Lenovo ThinkCentre Edge 62z Brings Affordable All-in-ones to Business Users

by Reads (1,929)

Lenovo, more than most manufacturers, has taken the all-in-one desktop concept to heart, putting out model after model: high-end, low-end, innovative, traditional, ten-finger touch, no touch at all – well, you get the idea. Continuing that trend is the new ThinkCentre Edge 62z, a very business-focused all-in-one PC.

Designed to replace the everyday desktop rolled out to every employee, the Edge 62z offers an 18.5-inch display that, according to Lenovo, saves up to 65% of the space taken up by your average 20-inch display. Unlike some of the trendiest all-in-ones on the market, the 62z definitely comes with an optical drive, as well as an Ivy Bridge Intel Core i3 CPU. You can also configure the Edge 62z with up to 1TB of hard drive space and 8GB of RAM.

Given that the current business reception to Windows 8 might best be described as “frosty”, Lenovo is probably smart to not even bother with it in this case; the newest OS that the Edge ships with is Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. Other business features include the ability to selectively disable various USB ports on the sides and back, and a webcam built for teleconferencing that suppresses typing noise – so you can still take notes without being a pain-in-the-neck to everyone on staff.

Available in May, the ThinkCentre Edge 62z starts at just $549. Given its business feature set, that’s a pretty solid deal; it’s largest competition will likely be from cheap bulk notebooks, which never tend to age quite as well.
