For companies purchasing 10,000 computers, that translates into major dollar savings.3

  • Advanced Remote PC Fleet Management – Using hardware-based Intel® vPro™ Technology, IT managers can more effectively discover, heal and protect networked M90p desktops throughout their PC fleet. For example, IT managers can diagnose hardware issues even if the PC is powered off, as well as remotely isolate and recover systems after operating system failures.
  • Lenovo Enhanced Experience for Windows 7 – The ThinkCentre M90 and M90p are optimized under Lenovo’s Enhanced Experience for Windows 7. The desktops boot-up in as quickly as 35 seconds and shutdown in as little as 9.6 seconds.4 The new desktops also support multi-touch capabilities when paired with the Lenovo L2461x Wide monitor.
  • Enhanced PC Fleet Security ToolsHardware Password Manager, another ThinkVantage Technology, provides IT managers oversight of user, supervisory, BIOS and HDD passwords to help companies increase their overall level of data security while reducing the time and expense associated with resetting employee passwords. Combined with the Intel® Trusted Platform Module, this solution provides rock-solid, layered hardware and software security for added data protection.
  • New Ergonomic Design – The desktops come with useful design features like a built-in top handle for easy transport and an easy-to-reach power button. A tilted design on the front I/O ports makes it easy and quick to see, plug and play.
