Lenovo ThinkCentre m57p ECO


The ThinkCentre M57p's compact black metal case measures just 3.2 by 10.8 by 9.2 inches (HWD). It could even sit in a bracket mount (available from Lenovo) behind a standard LCD monitor, effectively turning it into an all-in-one PC. The system's...

Green PC with energy usage to match. ThinkCentre utilities and IT support. Small form factor. Easy to service. 45-watt processor. Intel vPro. EPEAT Gold. Energy Star 4.0. ThinkVantage Client Security (TPM). Three-year warranty

No expansion room. Bloatware. Limited to integrated Intel GMA 3100 graphics ; Watch the Lenovo ThinkCentre M57p eco Video Review

the best budget computer


put in an MSI 5450 HD pcie2.0 video card and works pretty well. Low-end gaming and high end video. be sure to use pcie 2.0 as 2.1 requires higher watt which would be too much for this power supply.

I needed a low-budget computer and this one fit my price quite nicely. I give it 4 eggs 'cause I consider value for the money and for what I spent it's definitely worth 4 eggs

It' can use several upgrades but I hate calling those cons because I knew what I was buying and what I was paying I wouldn't have expected those upgrades to be included. In time I'll add an SSD and upgrade to 2g ram sticks

No bugs on me


I bought this thinkcenter For a separate computer for the internet so it would not corrupt my primary computer. I have had some issues with it but nothing major. Mow I can work on my primary computer without concern about inter net trash

Lenovo ThinkCentre M57P


The Intel Management Engine BIOS was interesting (!?). The unit's previous life apparently was in a corporate environment where IT managed desktops. Maybe Powershell would provide some BIOS settings?

A very nice small foot-print desktop for everyday use. Installed Windows 8.1, for testing and education, and works well. The unit comes with Intel Management Engine BIOS, which was new to me. At startup press F1 for some setup utilities, or F12 for...

Misadvertised OS Specs


The physical system was in quite good condition. No scratches or other damage to the case or interior

I really like Lenovo desktops as they are very substantial, some might say heavy. There are other advantages, but in this case, Newegg seems to have lost control of the accuracy of their advertising. The operating system was described as a 32 bit...

Better than expected


I kept the quiet, slower one. Might not be a perfect machine but it is stable and works well. I didn't want to chance getting another one that wasn't as good. I will update when the other on comes in.

Works well as a front desk PC for my small business ; Great for web surfing and simple tasks ; My son plays online kids games without any problems ; Case is in perfect condition ; Works as advertised

Bought two of these. One was noticeably faster and responsive. The faster one was having an issue where the CPU fan was running 100% and was very loud. Flashed the BIOS, did some other remedies that didn't work. Called the Refurb company and they did...

Nothing yet! i have a several year old HP Tower, Intel Pentium 4 w/ XP. This is the reason I purchased the Lenovo. I required Windows & and my system required more RAM. I thought the update to a Dual core desktop would be an improvement in my basic...

No security installed on system. Now I understand that is typical. I downloaded Microsoft Security Essentials first. Removed your Anti-virus due to potential cost. Downloaded Microsoft anti-Malware, Virus programs. CPU very slow. ? if system is...

Decent computer


Overall, a decent machine for what is needed.

Good entry computer for another family. This will be used for homework and basic internet tasks

Keyboard was defective and a column of keys didn't work. No 1, Q, A, or Z which makes typing difficult. I don't think it is worth trying to replace the entire unit for the keyboard, but that is very inconvenient

Should have stayed away from referb


Arrived fast and in one piece

Hard drive failed within 60 days. This is the second time one of these refurbished units failed within that time frame. Now the joy of re-installing everything again
