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... Read more...
If you have an older ThinkPad, ThinkCentre or ThinkStation PC with an integrated fingerprint reader, you might want to download Lenovo's latest software update. The company has acknowledged that a flaw in its Fingerprint Management Pro software could allow a malicious actor with physical access to your device login with a hard-coded password, bypassing the fingerprint reader. Lenovo says that the flaw affects Lenovo machines running Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. "Sensitive data stored by Lenovo Fingerprint Manager Pro, including users’ Windows logon credentials and fingerprint data, is encrypted using a weak algorithm, contains a hard-coded password, and is accessible to all users...

Lenovo updated its ThinkCentre line of business-class desktop PCs this morning, touting the systems’ security and reliability. All three new PCs come standard with Smart USB Protection, which lets companies manage security for the USB ports. Considering the recent reports of a firmware-based attack that exploits USB ports, that’s not a bad feature to have. The systems also include Energy Star 6.0 and EPEAT ratings, as well as SSHD support, but the similarities end there. One system is a slim, “affordable performance” PC, another has an exceptionally small form factor, and the last has more video graphics chops than you typically see in a business desktop. Lenovo ThinkCentre... Read more...
Don't you just hate it when you're trying to update your Facebook status on your all-in-one (AIO) PC when suddenly it burst into flames? You've never had that happen, you say? And you don't know anyone else who has experienced that either? Fair enough, though Lenovo isn't taking any chances and has decided to voluntarily recall 160,000 ThinkCentre M70z and M90z AIO desktop PCs sold between May 2010 and January 2012. "Lenovo has determined that due to a failure of the power supply in the affected all-in-one PCs, the system can overheat posing a fire hazard. Lenovo has received two customer reports worldwide of fire that resulted in damage to the PC," Lenovo said. Faulty power supplies that shipped... Read more...

Lenovo has been making a push in touch-enabled products as of late. A few months back, we tested one of the company's first touchscreen-enabled ThinkPad notebooks (and an IdeaPad, for that matter). Regardless, the company isn't exactly a household name when it comes to touch-enabled products, but with Windows 7's built in touch capabilities, the cost of entry is now lower perhaps, save for the cost of a touch-capable panel. The ThinkCentre M90z is Lenovo's newest 23" touch-enabled all-in-one PC, and it's going up against some stiff competition. HP's TouchSmart, Apple's iMac line, as well as a number of MSI units offer similar features at a similar price, and some might say with more modern looking,... Read more...
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 household name when it comes to touch-enabled products but with Windows 7's limited built in touch capabilities, the cost of entry is lower perhaps, save for the cost of a touch-capable panel. The ThinkCentre M90z is Lenovo's newest 23" touch-enabled all-in-one PC, and it's going up against some stiff competition.

Lenovo's famous for their notebooks, but those guys also sell desktops. The ThinkCentre line has been around (and thriving) for some time now, mostly within businesses and enterprises. But the company's newest two machines could easily work in a consumer setup. As with Lenovo's ThinkPad line, these new desktops aren't much to look at. But with these, it's always about what it can do for you. The ThinkCentre M70e is a new entry-level enterprise desktop, while the A70 is a slimmer, even more affordable option. The units are available with Intel Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad, Pentrium and Celetron CPUs, and on the GPU front, there's an NVIDIA GeForce FX380 or Intel's GMA X4500. Other specifications include...
