Lenovo Announces AMD-Based Desktops

The computers are preloaded with a suite of self-recovery tools to help diagnose, contact help, and recover from a virus or other software crash, even if the primary operating system won't boot.
Lenovo on Tuesday introduced processors from Advanced Micro Devices in its ThinkCentre A-Series family of business desktops.

The ThinkCentre A60 is available with an Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor, and AMD Athlon 64 and Sempron processors, officials with the Chinese computer maker said. The new PC is designed to run business applications from graphic design and complex statistical computation to medical imaging.

The computers are preloaded with a suite of self-recovery tools to help diagnose, contact help and recover from a virus or other software crash, even if the primary operating system will not boot. The ThinkCentre A60 also has a system migration tool for transferring data and settings from one desktop to another. It's also designed for easy access to components for faster repairs and upgrades.

Pricing for ThinkCentre A60 starts $669 with the AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor, $519 with the AMD Athlon 64 processor, and $379 with the AMD Sempron processor.
