New Lenovo ThinkCentre PCs

Lenovo on Wednesday announced the launch of its M58 and M58p desktop PCs from the ThinkCentre series which, the company claims, are its most secure and manageable ThinkCentre desktops to date. Both include ThinkVantage's Power Manager technology that allows users and system administrators to monitor or control the power consumption of the new PCs remotely by setting up daily or weekly shut-down times, especially when configured in a fleet. Available processors for either desktop will include the Intel E8000-series Core 2 Duos and Q9000-series Core 2 Quads, while the M58 will come with an Intel Q45 mainboard.

For added security, users can disable their USB and PS2 ports. Come April, the new ThinkCentre PCs will be able to support the newly-released Hardware Password Manager, giving users the option of setting up user, supervisory, BIOS and HDD passwords as opposed to just software-based protection. Apart from their low power consumption, the M58s will also be quieter as well as run cooler than Lenovo's current M57 family.

The ThinkCentre M58 starts at just shy of $500 and the M58p at nearly $900, with both available now in the Tower and Small Form Factor cases. The Eco Ultra Small Form Factor will become available in December.
