But despite the fact that the M90z to companies targeted, we still felt that the A70z could be much more attractive to the consumers and would be very well in educational settings. Sporting a similar signature ThinkPad design, but with a 23″ 1080p display, the Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z in essentially a big brother to the A70z. It also improves on the A70z with a faster processor, longer standard 3-year onsite warranty, easier expansion and an optional multi-touch display. Our system, which we received as a long-term loan unit came with 4GB of RAM and a 3.2 GHz Intel Core i5 processor.

One of the small differences in design, in addition to the different physical display sizes, is that the M90z displayed a thin metal layer is below the display. Lenovo develops, the M90z a space-saving and energy efficient. It measures only 2.5 inches deep can the M90z in several business environments are installed.

But as much as we the fact that the power supply is built-in love, we found that the power chord is way too short. Of course, you can use an extension cable chord, but that kind of annoying when you try to keep clutter is minimal – and that’s probably what you are trying to do in your company if you purchase this machine.

We have the system to be multi-talented and very capable very quickly. Running multiple applications such as Word, Excel, Internet Explorer, and Photoshop all at once does not always seem to slow down the machine, even when playing HD video files.

However, it feels like it lacks sharpness a bit, especially when it comes to text.
