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...

Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z


The Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z picks and chooses many of the all-in-one desktop features that make sense to a business user. The result is customizable, attractive, and powerful.

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.

Lenovo ThinkCentre m90z All-In-One


Compact All-In-One design, Convenient access to all computer components, Built-in webcam, Easy to move the computer from place to place, Windows 7 Enhanced Experience, Energy Star 5.0 Compliant, Additional Mounting Option, Toolbox Software

Webcam only 2 Megapixel, Costly as configured, No DVI

U nlike the a70z reviewer, I am not too big of a fan of all-in-ones, but the M90z has really won be over. That's not to say the system is without flaws. Inherent in all-in-one systems, there is a limited amount of customization and upgrades you are...

Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z Multi Touch All-In-One Review


A few months back we reviewed the Lenovo ThinkCentre A70z, a 19″ All-in-one PC. We discovered that the A70z is a capable, well made PC geared towards Small ...

Space saving energy efficient design, great performance, multi-touch display option extends the system’s possibilities, built-to last even in tough work environments, tool-less design allows for easy upgrades, allows for quick and easy set-ups, 3 year...

Speakers are not equipped for serious music playback, no 3D card option, webcam does not provide very good image quality, despite a higher priced system there are no eSata, USB 3.0 or Firewire ports

Desktop PC Review: Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z


The Core i5's integrated graphics are adequate for productivity and PowerPoint, but they keep the Lenovo from being a suitable workstation for video editors or CAD professionals, let alone satisfying serious gamers. The system puttered through the...

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 Review and Ratings


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

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...
