Notebook computers outsold desktops for the first time ever recently, but the desktop is still alive and kicking. The desktop is especially popular in the corporate world when mobility isn’t needed for workers. Companies that deploy hundreds of computers across the enterprise also want systems that are power efficient.
Lenovo has announced new ThinkCenter desktop computers called the M58 and M58p. The two systems feature Power Manager and are the first Lenovo systems to do so. Power Manager allows administrators to program the machines to turn off automatically at set intervals like holidays and weekends.
Both systems can be had in tower, small form factor, or ultra small form factor configurations. The M58p uses Intel vPro technology with Intel core 2 Duo or Core 2 Quad CPUs. The M58 uses the Intel Q45 chipset with ICH10-DO. Pricing for the M58 starts at $499 and pricing for the M58p starts at $899.
