Lenovo ThinkCentre A61e review

Hardware in Review
7 March 2008
  • Conclusion: I'm really impressed with the ThinkCentre A61e in terms of hardware and price, but every level of software it comes with is horrible. You don't want Windows Vista on your business desktop computers. Fortunately there is an option to have Windows XP preinstalled, and though it has many security problems and requires a lot of labor-intensive maintenance, it's definitely a better choice for business productivity.

  • Pros: Tiny chassis, Near-silent operation
  • Cons: Minimal upgradability, Unremarkable performance for the price

  • Cons: Power-savings sacrifice too much performance, Lacks features compared to other small desktops, Limited expandability options
