Stay productive without taking up too much space with the second-generation Lenovo ThinkCentre M715q Tiny Desktop Computer. It features a compact design that packs a 3.2 GHz AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 2400GE quad-core processor and 8GB of RAM, so you can type and browse the web. While running demanding tasks, the processor's four cores can operate at speeds of up to 3.8 GHz. The M715q has an integrated AMD Radeon RX Vega 11 Graphics chipset, which delivers detailed visuals to your DisplayPort-equipped monitor. For storage, a 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD is onboard, and Windows 10 Professional (64-bit) is preinstalled on this drive.
Other notable connections include two DisplayPort outputs, three USB 3.1 Gen-1 Type-A ports, and three USB 2.0 Type-A ports. Accessing the internet can be accomplished wired or wirelessly via onboard Gigabit Ethernet or Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac). There's also Bluetooth 4.2 for wireless access to headsets and speakers. Additionally, Lenovo includes a USB-wired keyboard and mouse for easy typing and navigation. There is also a floor stand so you can place the ThinkCentre M715q vertically.
Windows 10 Pro
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana, can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Laptop, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information-gathering skills.
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
