Customer Reviews for ThinkCentre M90z Best Seller
Review 1 for ThinkCentre M90z Best Seller
Date:March 19, 2012
"I have had the ThinkCentre M90z (64-bit, i5 processor, 4Gb memory) for about 6 months. It is by no means the first IBM/Lenovo computer I have purchased, and I am enjoying it as much as any I have had before. The screen is beautiful (non-glare would have made it even better), it is quick and so far it runs everything I ask it to. I process a lot of images for publication (I am not a photographer) and prepare videos for use in PowerPoint. It makes the jobs faster and easier.
I use a second monitor (25.5") on the built-in HDMI port and have occasionally used the M90Z as a second monitor for another computer (through the built-in VGA input port). There are multiple external drives and devices attached and everything was easy and worked well with no extra tweaking.
Since I have used ThinkPad Tablet PCs for quite a while, I like being able to do certain things with touch and find that the M90z Touch is quite responsive.
Lenovo issued a recall because of a potential power issue - I contacted customer support, a repair person contacted me to set an appointment. He appeared ON TIME at my house to make the repair. A very professional job from an IBM employee. [My computer is not under warranty.]
I had no idea that having an All-in-One computer could be as complete a solution as this one seems to be. It is certainly a business-class computer."
Pros: Processor, Memory, Screen size, Build Quality, sleek look, savings on energy costs.
Cons: Video card, some lenovo programs could open faster.
"This review is for the M90z without the touch screen.
I have owned this machine about a week.
For me, how a machine looks was the number one factor when deciding which Lenovo computer (what other brand is better?) I was going to purchase. Not all brands of computers are the same. For whatever reason, things just seem to work better on a Lenovo machine. The M90z lives up to this reputation. I prefer the simple and sleek look of the M90z. Even though this is a business machine, I bought it for personal use. Since I don't play any games, the fact the M90z comes with an integrated graphics card did not matter. I have read reviews that said the M90z does have some capability to play games, but I can't comment on that.
The internet connection speed is very good to excellent but sometimes could be better. The machine is located in a room about 10 feet from a DIR-655 router located in another room. My internet signal needs to go through two thin walls. Video streaming on most web sites (Hulu, ABC.com, CBS, FOX.com) is very good to excellent. I do not know if my router or the network card that comes with the M90z is preventing a better internet connection.
Some of the Lenovo software for running the machine opened slow. Most people consider these programs bloatware, but I found most of them useful. I was disappointed these programs did not open faster.
Reading through the information Lenovo provides about the M90z there are a lot of energy saving attributes. My guess is that the system can save at least $30 a year on energy costs when configured the right way compared to comparable system. Lenovo says the M90z can save $60.00 a year compared to a specific Lenovo system but I don't know how the power use of that system compares to to an average one.
I haven't used a lot of web cameras so I can't give an educated comment on the quality of the 2 megapixel web camera that comes with the M90z. My untrained eye tells me it is good but not great.
One word of advice for anyone that buys an M90z without the touch screen. The height adjustment stand available for $50 more is a must. It makes the machine look a lot better than if the metal stand in all the advertised pictures is used. I am not sure that metal stand can even be adjusted to a comfortable angle. It doesn't look like it to me.
Some reviews of the M90z I have read mentioned that fan noise is apparent. I am sensitive to those type of things and it was not an issue for me.
The A700 would probably have been a better choice for me since it was built for home use and has an i7 processor, more RAM, a bigger hard drive, and I believe a dedicated graphics card. However, as I mentioned the sleek look of the M90z is what I wanted. The A700 costs about $250 more. I did some price comparison of other brands of computers with similar specifications and separate monitors and the M90z is priced about the same. Lenovo doesn't seem to be charging a premium for the all in one form factor. The M90z is an example of Lenovo's cutting edge design of it's computers."
