Lenovo has taken the wraps off its newest desktop PC range aimed at small to mid-sized businesses and budget constrained individuals.
The ThinkCentre A57e runs on Intel's low power Atom processor, supports up to 2Gb of memory and a 320GB hard drive, and comes pre-loaded with Windows Vista or Windows XP.
Designed to work in a wide range of environments, the A57e includes an AntiSurge LAN Design, which helps it work reliably in areas where broadband penetration is low and power voltage unstable.
"The ThinkCentre A57e has been engineered through more than 2,000 rigorous testing processes, including enhanced early-life performance, electronic static discharge, volt shots, emissions and acoustics, shock, vibration and drops," said Per Ronn Olesen, director of the Desktop Business Unit for Lenovo EMEA.
"It has been designed with SME customers' business and personal computing needs in mind, making it the ultimate tool for small businesses."
The PC also incorporates a thermal design feature that keeps the system cool and protects the CPU and hard drive.
The ThinkCentre A57e will be available from January. Pricing has yet to be confirmed, but is expected to come in at a very low price point given the specifications and the strong budget focus from Lenovo.
