With a target market of businesses aiming to upgrade on desktop picture quality but without compromising on space, Lenovo’s latest monitor is likely to fit the bill of this particular demand. Named the ThinkCentre Tiny-in-One 23, with the number referring to the 23-inch display, Lenovo have essentially set their sights on unifying all forms of their current generation of Tiny PCs, namely the M93p, M83, M73 and M53.
Additionally having the ability to be connected to external laptops, the Tiny-in-One 23 functions with its PC cousins (sold separately) via a support slot at the rear of the monitor. With the lack of wires and cables needed to connect the PCs to the Tiny-in-One monitor, desk space has been dramatically reduced, not to mention the upkeep costs with the capability to switch Tiny PCs. Furthermore, Lenovo have taken care of security concerns that may surround the support slot, as a Kensington lock will secure the PC to the monitor, even if the cable itself is cut.
With its refreshing matte-black surface, the aforementioned 23-inch display and a 1080p resolution, companies have every right to be excited for the possibilities connected to the Tiny-in-One 23’s display, as the need for current software to be displayed in the greatest possible way has become increasingly pertinent.
Data visualization software and dashboard tools from companies such as datapine, have been fuelling the requirement for businesses to fuse together appealing visual content with cutting edge hardware systems; a merging that complements each other seamlessly. Although the Tiny-in-One 23 unfortunately doesn’t contain current touchscreen technology such as the Sony VAIO, the monitor’s user-friendly ergonomic stand and four USB ports (two of which are USB 3.0), potential buyers should still feel like they’re getting a good deal at $279.00. Not hurting its reputation by any means is the Energy Star certification and 90 watts energy use with an 87% power supply, giving the Lenovo monitor a helpful, green outlook.
Overall, the Lenovo ThinkCentre Tiny-in-One 23’s attractiveness will be down to its clutter-free design, the crisp and wide display and the interesting slot-and-lock feature for the Tiny PCs. For those wanting more information, Lenovo have released a helpful tour video here, detailing how exactly the four Tiny PCs can be inserted and removed, along with a good look at the stand’s features and additionally the lock feature provided by Kensington.
