Lenovo ThinkCentre A62

 

The Lenovo's ThinkCentre A62, a quad-core business desktop, is one way to increase the productivity of workers whose PCs are just too darned slow.

Quad-core processor. Energy Star 4.0, ROHS, EPEAT Gold and Greenguard certifications. Tower expansion. Security/TPM. ThinkVantage utilities.

Uses a little more power due to quad-core processor. Could use a bit more multimedia performance.

The Lenovo ThinkCentre A62 is a business PC with a triple-core AMD CPU and a reasonable price

Power hungry, drive caddy system is complicated, excessive bloatware

The Lenovo ThinkCentre A62 is a powerful business PC with a reasonable price tag, but we weren't thrilled by the drive caddy system and the amount of preloaded software.
