Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z Review


You could be forgiven for thinking that all-in-one PCs are as consumer-oriented as Nordstrom's. After all, their greatest benefits — style, size, and ease of use — are those that appeal to the mainstream buyer.

Simple, rugged design ; Easy access VESA mount ; Almost no bloatware ; 3-year standard warranty with on-site support

Bland aesthetics ; Average display ; Poor audio quality ; Outdated hardware

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.

Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z


Seasoned road warriors are likely familiar with Lenovo's ThinkPad laptops, which offer business-oriented software and functionality tailored to keeping each laptop running smoothly. The 23-inch Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z ($1400, as configured, as of...

Tool-free internal access ; Strong general performance for the category

Display appears a bit dim

Lenovo’s business-ready all-in-one brings the ThinkPad feel to the world of multitouch desktops--and it doesn't disappoint.

Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z Review


Lenovo might be best known for their ThinkPad notebooks and ominous black ThinkStation desktops, but the company continues to push ahead with its range of all-in-ones. The new Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z is aimed at both consumer and business users, and...

It’s rivals like the ZX6900 that count the Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z out for the home market, frankly. With an MRSP of $1,019.99, the Gateway is cheaper than the $1,338 of our Lenovo review unit, but still manages to include Blu-ray, an HDMI output and...

Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z


Picking a winner among these three is tough, since they all will work in the space-constrained business, and all three are under $1,500 as tested. The iMac, which is the same price as the M90z, has more memory and a screen resolution that's better for...

Compact all-in-one form factor. Full 1080p HD display. VGA in. Dual monitor support. Simple multi-touch interface. Intelligent mix of desktop and notebook components. Multiple stand options. Easy to service

Matte screen dulls colors on videos. No eSATA. A couple of trialware/bloatware programs. External DVI requires an adapter

The Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z desktop is a conglomeration of innovative features, all mixed together to give you a very good all-in-one PC for business users. If you "get" or need touch computing in your business, this is the one to get.

The Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z All-In-One Desktop Computer Review


photos by Kevin Lenovo recently sent me a 23″ touchscreen ThinkCentre M90z all-in-one desktop computer to use for long-term evaluation. Because of its similar form factor to the ThinkCentre A70z (which had a 19″ non-touchscreen monitor), I already knew...

Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z


In our test configuration, the business-oriented M90z is overkill for most office tasks. Configuration options, however, can bring down the price while still delivering a peppy big-screen office PC.

Speedy Core i5 CPU; sterling productivity-app performance; uncluttered design; easily upgradable

Expensive versus competition; tested model was overpowered for most office work

Unless your day-to-day business involves CPU-taxing productivity tasks, the near-$1,400 price of this specific ThinkCentre configuration is hard to justify given that the capable A70z cost about half that online at the time of this review. If you...

Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z Review


Lenovo has been making a push in touch-enabled products as of late. A few months back, we actually tested one of the company's first touchscreen-enabled ThinkPad notebooks (and an IdeaPad, for that matter). Regardless, the company isn't exactly a...

Beautiful 23" 1080p display ; Nice touch response ; No extra power brick required ; Fits great into office settings ; Solid overall performance

No reason to use the touch panel ; Design is a little dated ; No keyboard hot keys ; No discrete GPU ; Tray-load DVD drive ; Expensive compared to rivals

In our SiSoftware SANDRA tests, the ThinkCentre M90z was competitive, but didn't stand out, which is to be expected for a mid-range AIO machine. The CPU was without a doubt the system's strong point, as the 3.2GHz Core i5-630 managed to power through...

The Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z is everything you could ask for in an all-in-one business computer: hard working, straightforward, flexible and easy to use. This all-in-one PC is versatile, professional and well-designed, making it one of the best...

Lenovo brings the professional features of the ThinkPad to a space-saving all-in-one form factor

The otherwise compelling monitor display isn’t as vivid as the best all-in-one PCs

The ThinkCentre M90z is a versatile and powerful all-in-one computer for businesses.

Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z all-in-one touchscreen PC


Lenovo's ThinkCentre M90z is a 23in, all-in-one multi-touch touchscreen PC that's aimed at enterprise business users (unlike HP's TouchSmart PCs which...

Excellent touchscreen responsiveness, tool-less case, DisplayPort, good CPU speed

Multi-touch gestures were a little too sensitive, only 2GB RAM, no option for fast 3D graphics, relatively small capacity hard drive, DVD burner and SD card slot can be inconvenient to access

Lenovo's ThinkCentre M90z all-in-one touchscreen PC is designed primarily for business users. The multitouch touchscreen uses optical technology and it had excellent accuracy during our tests -- you can even use it while wearing gloves. However, the...
