7 Elements of Radically Simple OS Migration

Centre of attention?

There are VGA and HDMI ports for connecting to external displays, and audio input and output available for external speakers and microphone. The Edge 91z doesn’t have built-in Bluetooth, but with wireless peripherals bundled with the PC, that won't inconvenience many, if any, buyers.

The Edge 91z comes with an average selection of bundled software, including Norton Internet Security 2011 and Corel MovieFactory. There’s also the ad-supported Microsoft Office Starter Edition, which will no doubt do wonders for your productivity, having ads pop-up when you’re entering sales data into your Excel spreadsheet. Lenovo includes its own ThinkVantage software, which provides a handy all-in-one interface for tasks such as system diagnostics, driver updates, and back-ups.

Verdict

There’s nothing particularly exciting about the ThinkCentre 91z, but it’s a safe choice if you simply want a compact desktop PC for routine office work. However, rivals such as Dell and HP are selling more stylish systems with more memory and disk space for about the same price, so the 91z may struggle to stand out from the crowd. ®
