Lenovo has unveiled a new, thinner, lighter, and smaller all-in-one PC – the ThinkCentre Edge 62z. It’s mostly being marketed toward schools and hospitals that will buy them up in bulk, but if you’re in the market for an all-in-one for whatever reason, it’s worth giving this one a look.
The 62z is 18.5”, and light enough to be wall-mounted. Inside, you’ll only be getting as good as a 3rd generation Intel i3 Core processor, backed up by integrated Intel HD graphics, but those are plenty good enough considering Lenovo is trying to keep the price down with this one. Outside, you’ll find six USB 2.0 ports.
The 62z is aiming for people and organizations on a budget in two ways – keeping the price of the unit down, and cutting down on energy costs. The latter is realized thanks to Energy Star compliance and an 87 percent efficient power supply unit. The 62z uses less than 0.5 watts when turned off, which meets an EuP 2013 energy efficiency requirement.
You’ll be able to get all of that for $549 when the Lenovo ThinkCentre Edge 62z becomes available in May.
