Lenovo ThinkCentre M92 review

 

Sales of PCs may be falling, but there is still a place in many businesses for a desktop computer, especially a compact design such as Lenovo's ThinkCentre M92 which can sit discretely on the side of a desk or even attach to the back of a monitor.

Compact desktop chassis, internal access for maintenance, can drive multiple displays

No vPro support in M92 version

Lenovo ThinkCentre M92 3234 - Core i3 2120T 2.6 GHz - Monitor : none.

Tiny Backup Appliacnce

 

We use the Tiny M92p at remote sites to run our backup agent that gathers data from servers and talks back to the Data Center. The box is powerful enough to compress and encrypt data and is small and rugged for shipping to remote locations. Perfect fit...

Lenovo ThinkCentre M92 3207 - Core i3 2120 3.3 GHz - Monitor : none.

 

We have several services running on this computer. This machine has to run 24/7. I have never seen this thing have any issues. The only time I've seen it shut down was an end user error.
