Lenovo, the world's second-largest PC maker, unveiled a number of new business PCs May 8. These ThinkCentre and ThinkVision PCs run Intel's new Ivy Bridge chips and feature small footprints, 15-second boot-up times—thanks to Lenovo Enhanced Experience 3 (EE3) technology—smart cooling methods and, in some cases, multi-screen functionality. Including form factors that range from slim all-in-one desktops, to tiny towers, to golf-ball-height mini PCs, these Lenovo PCs will arrive between June and September at price points between $439 (for the ThinkCentre Edge 72) and $699 (for the ThinkCentre Edge 92z). Designed for small and large business users, their names are an alphabet soup that will surely drive IT managers mad. In its other mobile endeavors, Lenovo introduced an Android-running Smart TV in China May 8, and the company recently broke ground on a facility that will house its smartphone and tablet efforts. The company is also energetically pursuing "other mobile Internet terminal markets." One hopes it lets some clever marketing folks contribute to the naming process.
