Very easy to customize. It is a solid machine with good performance at a low noise level. I have 16 of them installed and have not had issues with the first one.

Awesome replacement for standard desktop PC. (1) power cord is all that's needed... no need for video/network cables, don't even need keyboard/mouse (although it comes with them).

Another good machine by Lenovo. Put 4G of RAM in the pc and you should have any problems with them in an office environment.

Lenovo ThinkCentre M72z 3548 - P G860 3 GHz - Monitor : LED 20"

 

Following in the great tradition of the ThinkCentre, this M75e is great. Its been rock solid, very little noise, good features. The case is easy to work with, and the software install by default is okay. Couldn't be happier. They do take some queues...

Great PC. Runs well and the small form factor takes up little room. Only CON would be that IBM/LENOVO preloads a lot of their own apps that can be bothersome for the corp user. Best to get those items removed.
