Earlier today, we brought you news of Lenovo's new second-generation ThinkPad X1 Extreme and the all-new ThinkBook S family of laptops. However, Lenovo also had another new device on hand to unveil: the ThinkCentre M90n-1 Nano.

The ThinkCentre M90n-1 Nano is being billed as the world's smallest commercial desktop PC, as it measures just 7.04 x 3.46 x 0.86 inches and weighs in a relatively lightweight 1.1 pounds while taking up a volume of 0.35-liters. Despite its compact dimensions, Lenovo is fitting the system with some pretty beefy hardware including 8th generation Intel Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 processors -- with and without vPro technology.

Likewise, Lenovo isn't skimping on other hardware components, as you can option it with up to 16GB of DDR4 memory and up to two 512GB PCIe SSDs. On the front of this desktop system, you'll find a total of two USB 3.1 Type-A ports, a single USB 3.1 Type-C port and a combo audio jack. Out back, there is one each of UB Type-A and Type-C ports, DisplayPort 1.2, and a GbE port. The expansion slot is occupied by a combo M.2 Bluetooth/Wi-Fi card. Lenovo says that the ThinkCentre M90n-1 Nano is MIL-810G SPEC, and it includes an onboard TMP 2.0 chip to encrypt your data.

There will also be a ThinkCentre M90n-1 Nano IoT variant made available, and it is designed to withstand higher vibration and thermal limits that would be presented din a manufacturing environment. It also includes a heatsink that is mounted on top of the chassis to aid in dissipating heat.

According to Lenovo, the ThinkCentre M90n Nano and Nano IoT will ship this August with a starting price of $639 and $539 respectively.
