Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z Review

 

The simple design of Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z is a clear benefit to businesses, as it takes up no more space than is necessary and can be handled all day long without smudging or breaking.

Reviewing this PC feels somewhat like reviewing a bulldozer based on how quickly it whips around a race track. The result is poor, but then again, that’s not really the point.

Great bang for buck thusfar!

 

I bought two of the PC's to install for a local business. I was slightly hesitant to buy the PC's because of some of the reviews reporting loud fans and DOA machines. So far, I'm very happy with them. Both fans run quietly and without issue. I've...

Small and easy to handle ; Relatively quiet ; Powerful for the cost ; In good shape

There's a black decal on the top and bottom of one of the PC's. I assume it is to cover scratches, and there are many bubbles under it

Works like a champ

 

The price is really decent for what you get. There small so they fit almost anywhere. I bought a bunch of these for a small company and for the price the performance cant be beat. I haven't had any fan problems with the ones that I bought

The mouse and keyboard that come with these are cheap really cheap. I would almost rather they had not sent them there that bad. The windows 7 pro software load they put on these is a little funky. Comes with Itunes pre installed for some reason. I...

Works like a champ

 

This is the 4th set of Lenovo refurb Thinkcentre I have gotten and nothing but problems. Really expected more from Lenovo/IBM. Maybe the new ones are better, but don't hold your breath.

Cheap... as in cost and workmanship

were to begin. both units booted up, went thru the set up all was fine. ran the windows 7 updates. On the last attempt the units shutdown to reboot. blank screen for about 15 secs, then the fans kicked into high gear. no beep, no post, no screen......

ThinkCentre M90

 

I gave this pc 5 stars because it really can't be beat for $250.00. The specs are good and it looks like new. It has a neat little case that opens up and you can get to every thing. It looks like new inside and runs like a champ so far. I got this for...

The dvd player looks new but it is a reader only. Does not write

Mystery fan speed flaw

 

I might have a different opinion had one of the *three* units I cycled through worked without turning into a jetliner a few minutes after boot. There is apparently a known hardware issue that causes the thermal sensor to believe it needs to ramp up the...

Good price for the specs ; Easy hardware/parts maintenance

Unsolvable hardware problem with fan speed ; Variable condition of refurbished units ; Includes non-OEM bottom barrel mouse & keyboard
