Conclusion: Reviewing this PC feels somewhat like reviewing a bulldozer based on how quickly it whips around a race track. The result is poor, but then again, that’s not really the point. Consumers who’ve bought ThinkPads in the past may think that this ThinkCentre will be equally sensitive to their needs. It’s not.
Pros: Simple, rugged design, Easy access VESA mount, Almost no bloatware, 3-year standard warranty with on-site support
Cons: Bland aesthetics, Average display, Poor audio quality, Outdated hardware
Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z Multi Touch All-In-One Review
22 January 2011
Excerpt: A few months back we reviewed the Lenovo ThinkCentre A70z, a 19″ All-in-one PC. We discovered that the A70z is a capable, well made PC geared towards Small ...
Pros: Space saving energy efficient design, great performance, multi-touch display option extends the system’s possibilities, built-to last even in tough work environments, tool-less design allows for easy upgrades, allows for quick and easy set-ups, 3 year on-site warranty is standard, mic with noise cancellation is perfect for VOIP calls without headsets, green friendly packaging, convenient top switch to disable camera ensures privacy when needed
Cons: Speakers are not equipped for serious music playback, no 3D card option, webcam does not provide very good image quality, despite a higher priced system there are no eSata, USB 3.0 or Firewire ports
Conclusion: The Core i5's integrated graphics are adequate for productivity and PowerPoint, but they keep the Lenovo from being a suitable workstation for video editors or CAD professionals, let alone satisfying serious gamers. The system puttered through the Heaven benchmark at 2.3 frames per second and Cinebench R11.5 's OpenGL animation at 1.9 fps, with a 3DMark06 score of 1,376 at its native 1,920 by 1,080 resolution.
Excerpt: In our test configuration, the business-oriented M90z is overkill for most office tasks. Configuration options, however, can bring down the price while still delivering a peppy big-screen office PC.
Conclusion: U nlike the a70z reviewer, I am not too big of a fan of all-in-ones, but the M90z has really won be over. That's not to say the system is without flaws. Inherent in all-in-one systems, there is a limited amount of customization and upgrades you are able to do to the system. The 23" monitor can't be beat, and if you need the extra monitor size, as well as added performance, choose this over the A70z.
Pros: Compact All-In-One design, Convenient access to all computer components, Built-in webcam, Easy to move the computer from place to place, Windows 7 Enhanced Experience, Energy Star 5.0 Compliant, Additional Mounting Option, Toolbox Software
Cons: Webcam only 2 Megapixel, Costly as configured, No DVI
Lenovo's M90z has an excellent touchscreen, but would benefit from better configuration options

Summary: Lenovo's ThinkCentre M90z all-in-one touchscreen PC is designed primarily for business users. The multitouch touchscreen uses optical technology and it had excellent accuracy during our tests -- you can even use it while wearing gloves. However, the overall configuration of the PC is a bit of a letdown considering its price.
Pros: Excellent touchscreen responsiveness, tool-less case, DisplayPort, good CPU speed
Cons: Multi-touch gestures were a little too sensitive, only 2GB RAM, no option for fast 3D graphics, relatively small capacity hard drive, DVD burner and SD card slot can be inconvenient to access
Summary: Lenovo har bare utstyrt alt-i-ett-pc-en sin med det såkalte Simple Tap-systemet: Når du trykker på skjermen, dukker det opp trykk-følsomme “fliser” som gir deg tilgang på forskjellige funksjoner, som f.eks. volumkontrollen. Det er en smal sak å opprette sine egne “fliser”. De fungerer som snarveier til nettsider, filer eller programmer. Dermed slipper du å klikke deg gjennom forskjellige mapper for å finne fram til de funksjonene du bruker mest.
Pros: Trykkfølsom skjerm
Cons: For lite minne, Dårlig mus og tastatur, Ikke USB 3.0, Ikke trådløst nettverk
Excerpt: Det största problemet med en tryckkänslig skärm är mängden fingeravtryck som bildas på den tämligen omgående. I fallet med Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z spelar det emellertid inte så stor roll, eftersom det i ärlighetens namn inte finns så mycket att använda den tryckkänsliga tekniken till.
Pros: Tryckkänslig skärm
Cons: För lite ramminne, Dålig mus och tangentbord, Saknar usb 3.0, Saknar trådlöst nätverk
Excerpt: Com a proposta de oferecer uma solução do tipo tudo-em-um para o mercado corporativo, o ThinkCentre M90z traz o DNA dos ThinkPads para o mundo dos desktops, porém numa leitura bem diferente. Anunciado em setembro do ano passado, o ThinkCentre M90z traz para o mercado corporativo o seu primeiro all-in-one um padrão de formato que a empresa já vem trabalhando já a algum tempo no mercado de consumo desde o Lenovo 3000 C300 ( já analisado por esse Ztop ).
