Take a look and make your judgment. Lenovo’s latest desktop has been leaked (surprise!) and of course, people are jumping to see what they can find out about the new product. Dubbed the ThinkCentre Edge 91z, this desktop is not your ordinary computer.
Now I know this isn’t a laptop, but the design is worth writing about. One look at the image and you’ll immediately see that Lenovo might be on to something here.
Believe it or not, the processor and everything else that is needed for a computer to function can be found in the monitor. In this respect, this desktop computer can be comparable to a laptop or a tablet PC, even!
Needless to say, the ThinkCentre Edge 91z – when it finally comes out – is going to be a game changer.
According to the PDF that Engadget “intercepted”, the ThinkCenter Edge 91z is supposed to be announced tomorrow, May 17. ((Engadget)) It should be available by late June of this year. Now that the leak has happened, we don’t know if anything is changing.
In any case, the ThinkCentre Edge 91z is not all about looks. It does pack a punch with respect to specs as well. The monitor is 21.5 inches, with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Other details:
- Multiple Active Displays for Multi-tasking
- 1G ATI Discrete Graphics Card (though this is optional)
- HDMI Video Out/Video In
- Spill-proof keyboard (now that’s something we all need!)
- Rapid Drive SSD
- Up to Intel Core i7 Quad Core CPUs
The price tag? From $699 to $1199. There’s nothing more to do but to wait for Lenovo’s official announcement. Also, it would be interesting to see how they handle the leak. ;)
