www.lenovo.com Retail Price: M92p Tiny, $580

The Lenovo ThinkCentre M92p Tiny is a full-featured mini PC with an Intel Core vPro processor, integrated graphics, and a hard drive or SSD, all packed into a durable package about the size of a classic novel.

Quality and Effectiveness: With its unique design, the M92p Tiny is a good choice for schools that need outstanding computing power in a small, energy-efficient package. Roughly 7 x 7 x 1.4” high, the M92p Tiny can be mounted behind a monitor, under a desk, or in practically any space. Yet it packs a choice of Intel 3rd Generation Core Ivy Bridge processors, a 4 GB memory, a choice of traditional or SSD storage, Windows Professional 64- bit operating system, and integrated graphics, along with Lenovo’s RapidBoot technology.

There are some drawbacks to such a Tiny form factor. For those who need a DVD/ CD drive, a VESA-mounted optical drive almost doubles the thickness of the Tiny. External speakers or headphones are needed, but this should not inconvenience school computer labs, where headphones are the norm. WiFi is available on some models; on others, an Ethernet connection is provided, and there is an optional port to install a WiFi card module antenna. There are also five handy USB ports.

Ease of Use: Because of its small size, low energy consumption and Intel Virtualization Technologies, the M92p Tiny gives school districts that are considering desktop virtualization or virtual desktop infrastructure a new and more efficient option, because it enables them to support desktop virtualization or to function as a traditional desktop like a thin client.

Creative Use of Technology: Lenovo’s SimpleTap program provides a quick way to customize some basic computer settings, such as muting the speakers or locking the computer operating system. With the energy-efficient performance of the the 3rd Generation Intel Core vPro Processor, the M92p Tiny is also the most energyefficient ThinkCentre to date. Because the M92p Tiny is based on 3rd Generation Intel Core vPro Processor, it has the latest hardware-based management and security capabilities and ample performance to support video, Flash, and collaboration-based applications.

Suitability for Use in a School Environment: Since it is energyefficient, quiet, cool and can fit in very small spaces, the M92p is ideal for school situations where space, acoustics, or heat are important considerations. The metal chassis is designed to take a bit of abuse in public environments, and the system can be easily mounted to the back of a monitor or under a desk. IT departments will appreciate that the M92p Tiny includes Intel vPro with Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) for effective remote maintenance and management.

TOP FEATURES

• The ThinkCentre M92p Tiny’s one-liter, ultra-compact footprint, highly energy-efficient design, and nearly silent operation make it ideal for the school environment.
• The Lenovo Think Centre M92p Tiny combines the energy-efficiency and remote management benefits of a thin state client device, but with more power to effectively deliver video and other graphic-intensive applications.
• Durability of the M92p Tiny is boosted by its metal case and Intelligent Cooling Engine that can increase the life span of the system.
