Lenovo ThinkCentre M32 thin client priced at $259

Lenovo ThinkCentre M32 thin client, powered by Intel Celeron Platform, will be priced at around $259.

The latest thin client will be available from October 2013.

The latest thin client has the Energy Star 5.2 green certification to make it more power efficient.

The company said ThinkCentre M32 thin client offers enterprise level functionality for customers wanting a desktop virtualization solution.

Lenovo claims that thin client solutions offer lower capital investments and can reduce management and maintenance costs. Enterprise CIOs can reduce security risks from viruses, spyware or theft as data resides on the network, not the thin client.

Lenovo’s ThinkCentre M32 thin client offers customers a choice of a flexible Linux-based thin client operating system, LeTOS or Windows Embedded Standard 7.

In addition, the thin client also features Lenovo Terminal Manager (LTM) software that is effective, secure and easy to use management software that helps customers centrally manage thin client assets. Lenovo partnered with Devon IT to develop thin client software solutions.

“The ThinkCentre M32 is a small form factor thin client that adds value to our quality desktop products and helps enterprises meet end-to-end IT solutions for desktop virtualization,” said Victor Rios, vice president and general manager of Think desktop, workstation, and visuals.

The Lenovo ThinkCentre M32 thin client was unveiled at VMworld 2013 on Monday.

“Customers value rich, personalized virtual desktops that are available 24/7 from different locations and devices, and the new Lenovo ThinkCentre M32 with VMware Horizon View can help broaden their options while offering the latest benefits of VDI,” said Erik Frieberg, vice president, Product Marketing, End-User Computing, VMware.
