Lenovo's new ThinkCentre M90a AIO adds some security features to a sleek all-in-one form factor PC. The M90a uses Lenovo's Blur Screen Software and IR sensors to protect user privacy. The AIO can be configured with a 10th generation Intel Core U i7 with vPro and plenty of RAM and storage. The AIO also boasts quite a bit of I/O.

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.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
