Lenovo Unveils Slim Desktop

The new ThinkCentre A55 is 64% smaller than Lenovo's traditional desktop tower.

PC manufacturer Lenovo says it's tackling the problem of tight office space and desktops packed with equipment by coming out with a desktop that's 64% smaller than its traditional tower form factor and 25% smaller than its conventional small desktop. Lenovo is unveiling the ThinkCentre A55 Small Form Factor desktop PC on Monday.

"We're seeing an increased adoption of small form factor desktops in settings such as health care, education, financial institutions, and call centers," said Tom Tobul, an executive director with Lenovo, in a written statement. "These PCs give users the latest innovations, like the new Windows Vista operating system and our innovative ThinkVantage Technologies in a compact form."

The new desktop includes Lenovo's ThinkVantage Technologies, such as Rescue and Recovery and the Client Security System, which help with data recovery and password management. Chinese-owned Lenovo acquired the Think-brand desktops, laptops, and related technologies from IBM in late 2004.

The ThinkCentre A55 SFF desktop has a starting price of $579. It will be available in early February.
