Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z all-in-one with touchscreen
Today Lenovo has announced its new business desktop, the previously-teased ThinkCentre M90z. Sporting a 23-inch touch-capable 1080p display, the M90z is powered by the new 2010 Intel Core processors and has the classic Think design weve all come to expect.
You can check out the full list of speeds & feeds after the jump, but lets cover a few unique features of the M90z. Buyers can choose from the standard tilt mount seen in the photos, which allows easy angle adjustment, or an optional height-adjustable base stand that attaches to the back of the M90z via what looks like a standard VESA mount. One can probably mount the M90z on any standard VESA mount, as long as it will support the weight.
Built into the chassis is a convenient hand-hold, for easy carrying of the device. With the optional wireless keyboard & mouse, you end up with a single-cable device. It isnt entirely clear if every M90z has a touch screen, Id imagine not, but those equipped with also get the companys nifty SimpleTap software. Previously, we took a look at SimpleTap on the T400s multitouch.
The 23-inch 16:9 1080p LCD can also double as a standalone monitor, accepting input via a VGA port. There is one last feature of this display that has potential for utility, but were a little unclear on the specifics right now. The M90z, as well as the L2321x monitor announced today, have a dual display capability.
In short, this feature allows two different video sources to be displayed on one screen simultaneously. The documentation refers specifically to displaying separate video signals at once, but its not clear if that is from two external inputs or if it artificially segments the display so you have a little more control over how your windows are displayed and arranged.
Well let you know when we get clarification on that, but it sounds like it could be useful.
The ThinkCentre M90z is available through partners now and will be on Lenovo.com later this month starting at $899. Hit the jump for the full speeds & feeds
