Entry-leve AIO geared for small businesses
Lenovo on Monday introduced the ThinkCentre A70z, an all-in-one system geared for small- and medium-size businesses. The systems offer a choice between Intel Core2 Duo or Celeron Dual Core processors, with hard-drive options reaching up to 500GB. A DVD drive, webcam, integrated speakers, and optional Wi-Fi components round out the specs.
The company claims the AIO is capable of booting in just 35 seconds, with a 40 percent faster shut-down time compared to standard desktops. The device meets Energy Star 5.0 standards, while power management features are said to further reduce power consumption.
The A70z is expected to ship at the end of November with pricing starting at $500.
