Lenovo has bolstered its ThinkCentre Tiny business desktop family with the addition of the ThinkCentre Chromebox.

It has been designed for education and small business users looking to utilise benefits of cloud-based solutions.

The one litre desktop operates on Google’s Chrome operating system, plus it can also combine with the ThinkCentre Tiny-in-one desktop.

Ouyang Jun, VP and general manager of desktop and visuals at Lenovo, said: “Lenovo was the first to introduce a one litre commercial desktop and ThinkCentre Chromebox is a testament to our commitment to the continued evolution of the desktop and our promise to push the boundaries on innovation for our education and business customers.”

Teachers can also use the centralised device management to enable safe browsing and provide asset tracking.

With a range of ports available, the Chromebox can connect to a range of devices, and users can login in to another ThinkCentre Chromebox or a ThinkPad 11e Chromebook at another location and access their cloud-based data and apps.

Jun added: “Combined with the ThinkCentre Tiny-in-One, the new Chromebox illustrates our belief in more flexibility for teachers and IT managers to continue to offer desktop solutions in a modern day environment.”

The ThinkCentre Chromebox should be available in the UK towards the end of July, at an estimated starting price of £130 excluding VAT.
