Lenovo announced several new monitors and the ThinkCentre M90a AOI PC ahead of CES 2020. The monitors range from relatively budget-friendly displays to high-end displays for professional creators. Lenovo states that it designed the ThinkCentre M90a AOI for premium users. The ThinkCentre M90a AIO is expected in June 2020 and starts at $1,099.

The ThinkCentre M90a AIO has a 23.8-inch FHD display. The all-in-one includes several security features, including an option for PrivacyGuard, which makes it hard for people to see the screen when looking over your shoulder. PrivacyGuard works with PrivacyAlert, which can detect when a person is trying to peek at your display. The all-in-one's webcam has a ThinkShutter, which ensures that people can only see you when you want them to. That same webcam also works with Windows Hello.
The ThinkCentre M90a AIO runs on up to a 10th Gen Intel Core i7 vPro processor. It's available with up to AMD Radeon 625 2GB gDDR5 graphics and up to 32GB DDR4 memory. The all-in-one has several storage options, including up to 2TB HDD storage and up to 1TB M.2 OPAL SSD.
