How different are desktop computers, really? While manufacturers (and their marketers) might disagree, there isn’t a great deal of difference between the performance of one desktop PC and another when you’re comparing at the same level of memory, processors, etc. As vendors roll out new models, they are often using added-value software to differentiate their desktops from the competition and from other models in their own product lineups.
Lenovo’s new ThinkCentre A62 has an Express Repair feature, a ThinkVantage Technologies component that can fix many system corruptions in less than three minutes without disturbing data or applications (i.e., crashing and restarting). When computers crash you lose data and waste time; both are bad. The idea behind their ThinkVantage Technologies management tools is to save time and money after the purchase of the product, extending its life cycle, productivity, and hopefully customer satisfaction.
Like models offered by Dell, HP and Gateway, the ThinkCentre A62 is environmentally friendly – with up to 40% improved energy efficiency over previous models – and aggressively priced starting at $399.
