ThinkCentre Edge 91z, How Powerful is It?

Lenovo said that the ThinkCentre Edge 91z is deployed by one of the world’s leading architectur firms, Satoshi Ohashi. I’m not an architect, but I used to be an architecture student in the past, so I little know the requirement of architecture tasks. Most of them works with graphic application such as Autocad, Autodek Revit, Photoshop, Archicad, 3DS Max, SketchUp, and/or other similar softwares. The more powerful the PC used, the faster the tasks can be completed.

With pricing starts from $799, the minimum specs of ThinkCentre Edge 91z are: Intel Core i3-2100 (3.1 GHz, 3 MB L3 Cache); 1GB DDR3 system memory; and Intel HD Graphics (Integrated). Uhm.. I think its basic specification doesn’t meet the top leading architect’s workload, am I wrong? So what are the maximum specs? Let’ see: Intel Core i7-2600S (2.8 GHz, 8 MB L3 cache); 8 GB DDR3 system memory; and AMD Radeon HD665OA 1GB. And yes, the maximum specs are very architect-friendly.

I don’t know how much we must pay to get the top-end model, I can’t find the detail yet. But you can browse to find it.

Regarding the rest of specs, the ThinkCentre Edge 91z features View Management Utility; 6-in-1 card reader; 2MP webcam with integrated mic; Spill-proof wireless keyboard; HDMI out / VGA in; and single-cable setup. For inter-connectivity, this All-in-One PC sports Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/Draft-N; Optional Bluetooth via Dongle; Gigabit Ethernet; and USB ports.
