Expert review by: Michael Palamountain (

Lenovo M57e


The Lenovo M57 eco is a small form-factor desktop that is promoted by the company as energy efficient. We found it to be a capable and powerful office performer for its size, but with limited upgrade options.

Excellent build quality, Good performance (though graphics in a bit average), Takes up little desk space, Low energy consumption

Very boring design, No room for add on cards.

Reliable office computing at a fair price.

Product Specifications

The ThinkCentre M57e series offers great performance, reliability, and manageability combined with the latest technology and TVT benefits. Lenovo systems include a fully integrated recovery environment that works when your operating system is not working. Lenovo systems manage everything that changes when your location changes, not just your Internet connection. Innovative toolless mechanical design for easy upgrades and service support.
