At A Glance

A cheap, portable mechanical keyboard with design compromises that aren't likely to be deal-breakers for most gamers.

Overall the Lenovo ThinkCentre M92z is a great choice for those in need of a strong and smart business system. The screen is large enough and usable with its touchable anti-glare properties, the hardware is up to par with any other office system (i.e. not playing games) and the price is right for certain key office workers who need relatively strong performance in a small space.

For a budget desktop, this bare-bones system offers little beyond its frame rates.
