Infotech Lead America: Lenovo has priced ThinkCentre Edge 62z — the latest addition to its all-in-one (AIO) portfolio — at $549.
ThinkCentre Edge 62z, which features an 18.5-inch LCD screen, is suitable for enterprises with a need for multiple PCs.
Lenovo says the cost effective PC would target industry verticals like healthcare and education markets and enterprises such as nursing stations and school computer labs.
“Our customers, particularly in the healthcare and education markets, see the benefits of the smaller footprint AIOs in their work environments,” said Chris Frey, vice president, North America channel business, Lenovo. “The ThinkCentre Edge 62z delivers on that request with a product designed to maximize space and minimize cost.”
The 18.5-inch screen of the ThinkCentre Edge 62z — that runs on 3rd generation Intel Core i3 processors — provides more than 65 percent space savings when compared to a 20-inch monitor, which allows enterprises to place more AIOs.
It can also be mounted to the wall a strategy often used in nursing stations and patient rooms to allow caregivers to quickly access vital information and enter data into patient charts.
School districts often place wall-mounted PCs like the ThinkCentre Edge 62z in classrooms to encourage interactive lessons.
The ThinkCentre Edge 62z comes with ENERGY STAR 5 compliance and an 87 percent power supply unit (PSU) for more efficient energy usage and increased cost savings. The AIO also meets the EuP 2013 energy efficiency requirement by consuming less than 0.5 Watts of electricity when turned off.
