Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - TESTBENCH -

It is a tes­ta­ment to the prac­ti­cal­ity of the all-in-one com­puter that it took us just two min­utes to in­stall the Len­ovo ThinkCen­tre Edge 92Z. It helped that this one comes with a wire­less key­board and mouse, which you will not have to use much thanks to the touch­screen.

The Edge 92Z doesn’t take up much space and was eas­ily ac­com­mo­dated at an edge of our of­fice ta­ble. That is a big leap for a de­vice that can re­place your old com­puter, and maybe a tele­vi­sion. This is a Win­dows 7 com­puter, but still we had no trou­ble us­ing it with just the touch­screen which is very re­spon­sive.

The 21.5inch 1080p LED dis­play with IPS wide view­ing an­gle has to be one of the best things about this de­vice. It was a plea­sure work­ing on front of the screen as was lean­ing back to en­joy a movie. The sound qual­ity, en­hanced by Dolby Ad­vance Au­dio, is also among the best we have en­coun­tered in any all-in-one. In fact, the en­ter­tain­ment quo­tient of this de­vice is good enough for it to be rec­om­mended for just af­ter­hours play and no work.

But on the other side, this com­puter is pow­er­ful enough to be used for com­mer­cial pur­poses, es­pe­cially where there is a space crunch. It is pow­ered by an In­tel Core i5-3470S pro­ces­sor that had no trou­ble with the tests we threw at it. Then there is the Len­ovo So­lu­tion Cen­tre that lets small busi­nesses eas­ily con­trol the de­vice as well as Sim­ple Tap features that let users down­load apps for the all-touch en­vi­ron­ment.

This also lets you cre­ate ad­di­tional work spa­ces, which is ideal for work­sta­tions that are shared by mul­ti­ple users.

Eas­ier ac­cess to at least one USB port is some­thing we could have asked for on this de­vice.

BAG IT OR JUNK IT?

Ar­guably the best all-in-one op­tion at the moment.
