This summer, sleek new desktop computers are popping up all over the Spring Hill College campus. The ThinkCentre Edge 92z machines are a generous donation to SHC from Lenovo, recognized in 2013 as the world’s largest personal computer vendor.

The fifty state of the art desktops, provided by Lenovo at no cost to the College, are all-in-one computers containing wireless Intel Centrino Network cards, full HD 1080P webcams, and digital array microphones with keyboard noise suppression technology. Each machine features a 21.5 inch screen, 1 TB hard drive, 4 GB total memory, 6 USB Ports, and a 3rd Generation Intel Core i5-3470S Processor. Each ThinkCentre Edge is loaded with Windows 7 Professional 64 and AMD Radeon HD 2GB system graphics.

Other Lenovo ThinkCentre Edge features include:

IPS Wide Viewing Angle - Allows for vivid colors and nearly 180-degree viewing angles.

Space-Saving Design - Reduces the amount of desk space needed by up to 70 percent, compared to traditional configurations.

Optimized Data Security - Protects data with self-encrypting drives, Password Manager, and remote BIOS port lock capability.

RapidBoot HDD Accelerator – Starts systems 30 percent faster; so students, faculty, and staff spend time working instead of waiting.

Fast Data Transfer - Moves data quickly between your PC and other devices with USB 3.0 SuperSpeed, which is up to 10 times faster than previous USB technologies. Also shares wirelessly with WiFi Direct or Bluetooth.

Spring Hill College’s student center and admissions reception department were among the locations across campus to receive ThinkCentre Edge 92z desktop computers. During the months of June and July, the remaining machines will be distributed across campus, with priority placed on departments in the greatest need of technology enhancements. Each remaining desktop across campus will be upgraded to Windows 7 with 4 GB of memory installed to assist the computers in running faster and more efficiently. The campus-wide upgrades are scheduled to be completed by September of 2014.
