Lenovo ThinkCentre M55e

 

The name "Lenovo ThinkCentre" is familiar to millions of business users worldwide. The ThinkCentre M55e ($1,259 direct, $1,619 with 22-inch widescreen LCD monitor), continues the tradition of excellence for this desktop line that goes back to when...

Dual-core processor. Small form factor. Enterprise-class hardware. ThinkVantage utilities. Three-year on-site warranty

A bit pricey. Only a 90-day subscription for Symantec Client Security. DVD/CD-RW drive

The Lenovo ThinkCentre M55e works equally well in the enterprise as well as in small and medium businesses.

Very quiet, powerful, and light weight

Could have been a little bit faster

I am happy as long as it takes care of whatever I need to do.

Lenovo M55

 

This one is 10 years old but hey! I didn't expect any miracles for $90:00 CAN.

Price, price, price ; Incredible fast delivery (1 day). Cheers Newegg ; Cheap Web browser and Kodi solution (play from a server) ; Was supposed to be 32 bits. This one is 64 bits

Nothing so far: I just had it for a 1/2 day

Perfect

 

I ordered this for my father. He only uses computers for research and email. For the price this has made his life less stressful, since it replaced the older machine that was very slow

None as of now

Disk drive cable was not even connected to the drive or to the motherboard it was just laying loose in the case. It was still set up to boot from a network. Sound does not work, from the front or the back. Driver is installed properly everything seems...
