Lenovo launches first small-business desktop line

Lenovo is now selling desktops with PC management technologies at low prices to small businesses.

Lenovo Group has unveiled a new series of inexpensive desktops designed to bring some of its ThinkCentre PC management technologies to low-end PCs for small businesses.

The ThinkCentre E50 series desktops are Lenovo's first products meant for the small business market, which Lenovo defined as companies with fewer than 100 employees. Some of these companies do not have professional IT staffs and can make use of technologies such as Rescue and Recovery, which can help basic PC users troubleshoot problems even if the PC's operating system refuses to boot properly.

Lenovo, and IBM before it, previously marketed these technologies to larger businesses as part of the ThinkPad notebook lineup, but it is now bringing them down to desktops that cost as little as US$379. Several different configurations with Celeron and Pentium 4 processors from Intel are immediately available on Lenovo's Web site and through authorized dealers.

Lenovo is the world's third-largest PC vendor as ranked by its market share of worldwide PC shipments, according to data released Monday by Gartner and IDC. It completed its purchase of IBM's PC business in May.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
