Lenovo's new ThinkCentre Tiny is rugged, powerful and really small

New laptops are making up the bulk of Lenovo's IFA 2015 announcements but those who want something to stay in one place aren't being forgotten. The new Thinkcenter Tiny is exactly what it sounds like. A new Thinkcenter desktop in a teeny tiny form factor.

But while the size has been reduced, the hardware inside most certainly has not.

Here's what's on offer:

Lenovo says this has MIL-spec ruggedness which might seem a little excessive for something that's going to spend its life sat on a desk. However, as you can see in the picture above, it's shorter than a regular pencil on its longest side, so there's every possibility of taking this desktop on the road.

It's not cheap, but then it's also not cutting corners on the hardware as many small form-factor PCs can tend to do. If you're looking for a high-end, tough as nails, teeny tiny desktop PC, this might be the one for you.

We'll be getting a better look at the ThinkCentre Tiny along with all of Lenovo's other new announcements live from the show floor in the coming days. Stay tuned to Windows Central for that and more from IFA 2015.

  • I thought Thinkcentre is from IBM?
  • Was!
  • So....is this still made by IBM as Lenovo?
  • No it's made by Lenovo as Lenovo.
  • IBM sold the Think branding to Lenovo many years ago.
  • Many years ago. Dinosaur age
  • Very appealing
  • Wow that is a mini beast
  • Desktop space saver.
  • No WiFi though, not a great machine then
  • Without dedicated graphics it's useless for me. But it's perfect for someone who wants something casual.
  • These are great business machines that I use in a number of places: Kiosk displays, standup desks, cabinets in our shops. And previous models have had built in wifi.
  • Man, looks awesome and almost exactly like the ThinkCentre I have on my desk here at work. Would want dedicated graphics for a home machine, though. Who else makes tiny PCs like this that would be more beefy?
  • That Pencil comparison really shows the tiny form factor, i was expecting bigger than this for the power it packs.
