Lenovo intros A63, M90 work PCs with new CPUs

Lenovo on Thursday revealed two new desktops that use Intel's relatively new Core i7 processor and AMD's Phenom II CPU. The first is the ThinkCentre A63 desktop meant for small- to medium-sized businesses, and it can be equipped with a range of AMD's 45nm processors, including the Sempron, Athlon II Phenom II processors.

Buyers can also outfit the A63 with hard drives up to 500GB in capacity, and 1,333MHz DDR3 memory. There are 8 USB ports for connecting peripherals, and buyers will have the option of a webcam and preloaded Skype app for VoIP calls.

Large businesses are catered to with Lenovo's new ThinkCentre M90 and M90p. They are powered by Intel's Core vPro family of processors, including the Core i5 and Core i7, with performance increases compared to previous generation models in the order of 81 percent, Lenovo says.

The desktops meet Energy Star 5.0 standards for long-term savings in terms of running costs. To help in this regard, they ship with Power Manager, or software that lets IT managers remotely monitor energy consumption of the PCs. Thanks to Windows 7, they can also support multi-touch inputs on their displays when paired with the appropriate hardware.

Pricing for the ThinkCentre A63 will start at $329 when the PC launches in the next few days. The ThinkCentre M90 and M90p begin shipping in February, with start prices set at $779 and $899, respectively. The M90 series is available in three form factors, including traditional tower, small form factor and ultra small form factor.
