CES 2020 | Lenovo unveils ThinkCentre M90a AIO, a more secure all-in-one desktop
All-in-one desktops are convenient, allowing users to save desk space by combining both a PC and a monitor. However, they’re not the most secure devices as convenience typically trumps security. However, Lenovo’s new ThinkCentre M90a AIO may change that trend.
The M90a AIO features a 23.8-inch FHD “E-Privacy” display that uses IR sensors for Lenovo’s Blur Screen Software. These IR sensors can also be used for Face ID logins for a quick and (relatively) secure way to log into the device. The AIO also uses Intel’s vPro technology, dTPM 2.0, and a Match on Chip fingerprint sensor to round out its security suite. There’s also a ThinkShutter camera cover and a Kensington lock slot.
Inside the machine is up to a 10th gen Intel Core U i7 with vPro, up to an AMD Radeon 625 GPU with 2 GB of GDDR5 VRAM, up to 32 GB of DDR4 RAM (2 slots), and plenty of storage: up to a 2 TB 2.5-inch HDD, up to a 1 TB M.2 OPAL SSD, and a slim optical DVD drive.
The ThinkCentre M90a AIO comes in at 541 x 492.2 x 46 mm and 7.51 kg. Around the back of the machine are two USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A ports, four USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, one USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C port, a 3-in-1 card reader, a combo headphone/microphone jack, and a DP out/LAN or DC input. All of these ports and the cables running to them can be hidden behind a rotating panel on the back for a cleaner look.
The Lenovo ThinkCentre M90a AIO will be available in June 2020 starting at US $1099.
