Lenovo announced the ThinkCentre M57/M57P "Eco" ultra small desktop PC, reportedly the first desktop PC to receive GreenGuard certification, and Lenovo's most environmentally responsible desktop PC to date. The ThinkCentre M57/M57P is EPEAT Gold rated, Energy Star 4.0 rated, and the first ThinkCentre with recycled material from consumer plastics.
GreenGuard certification means that the ThinkCentre M57/M57P was tested for up to 2000 different chemical emissions. GreenGuard Environmental Institute has certified more than 150,000 products and materials for emissions of volatile organic compounds and other chemicals.
The new ThinkCentre M57/M57P "Eco" ultra small PC also features ThinkVantage Technologies. With the touch of a button, the user can recover from viruses, update the system, clean up the hard drive, and find help. The ThinkCentre M57/M57P also comes with Intel vPro technology that enables IT staff to remotely perform system maintenance, including installing security patches and ensuring energy policy settings, even if the system is powered down or if the bios or hardrive is inoperative.
It's available for $699.
