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.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
