Lenovo ThinkCentre M57 (6072-ADM)

 

Red and black are back. The Lenovo ThinkCentre M57 (6072-ADM) uses Lenovo's standard form factor chassis, unlike the small form factor ThinkCentre A61e we reviewed recently, and dons the tried and tested black and red colour scheme. It isn't a great...

e-SATA and legacy ports, tool-free chassis ;

Mid-range performance, little to no upgrade potential ;

In our benchmarks it performed with expectedly mid-range results. Although the E6550 is a good CPU, it's not running at a high default frequency. In WorldBench 6 it scored just 75, which will suffice for the average swathe of tasks like word processing...

Great inexpensive workstation!

 

I was prepared to buy this computer just to get the software but am pleasantly surprised with the quality and function of this PC as a workstation in my warehouse.

Clean, ready to go. Installed software (Win 7 and Office Home/Student) make this a GREAT value!

Extremely POOR refurbish quality.

 

I received the unit with a huge noise when moving the box. I had to open the computer to realize that the hard drive was in no way screw ed. Inside the computer was not even clean. Large pieces of dust, hair and debris was free inside. As a technician...

Gross.

 

I expected more for refurbished - more than just loading a fresh copy of Windows on the thing. It even had a 250gb SATA hard drive in it originally from a Dell Equalogic - how ancient must that drive be? I'm using it for a very small FreeNAS server, so...

Cheap. Functional. Comes with a copy of Windows for less than the price of Windows. Built like a tank.

Disgusting. Barely "refurbished". Not even cleaned, full of office fuzz and gunk that had to be cleaned out. Front panel and case is beat up.

Good machine. Great price

 

I bought this on sale for about $95 [and free shipping] and also got a $20 rebate which was available at the time. I do virtual work and needed a machine that had minimal features but would work well. This machine and a 23" refurbished monitor work...

All components worked out of the box ; Great price

Not a lot of options for upgrading
