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.

Been a problem since we bought. Fan runs loudly when powering on, and no bios boot, have to unplug then replug in every time.

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.

Stable and good performers. also these have very reasonable prize, the only thing they need to improve upon is support. My experience with support is very bad.

Can only agree with what Jim1815 has said, very good price. They do last awhile and with IBM support is always good. Reliable and good pc for not so demanding software!

This product is priced right for the budget minded IT department. Not the best, but definitely not the worst. Have not tried their support department.

Lenovo ThinkCentre M78 5100 - A6 series 5400B 3.6 GHz - Monitor : none.

 

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...
