Lenovo ThinkCentre M710 Overview of the Various Models, Configurability, & Security Features

If you’ve been thinking about buying a PC like the Lenovo ThinkCentre M710 but don’t want the standard tower, it now comes as a small factor and “tiny” model as well. All three versions of this PC are available for online shoppers.

You can customize all three of them similarly, and they all come with the same base hardware. If space is an issue in your home or office, the “Tiny” version is a must-have, as it is 96% smaller than a standard desktop tower. You can easily mount it underneath the desk or behind the monitor for an “all-in-one” PC experience.

The ThinkCentre M series consists of productive and reliable computers, as these desktops are packed with performance up to Intel Core i7 processors. They are also “next-generation ready”, meaning that you will be able to easily upgrade many components as your requirements grow and evolve.

The cheapest processor option is an Intel Pentium processor (G4560T) at 2.9 GHz with 3MB cache. If that’s not enough for you, go with a 7th gen. Intel Core processor (up to i7 8MB cache). All versions start out with 4GB of memory but you can go up to 32GB on Tiny model and up to 64GB on the Tower and SFF models. The latter two also have enough room for a NVIDIA GeForce GT video card (2GB 730 DDR5) if you need more than integrated graphics.

Storage Options for the Lenovo ThinkCentre M710

Regardless of which version you choose, there is room for at least 500GB -1TB of storage space on a 7200 RPM and up to 512GB on an SSD Opal PCIe drive. The base option is a 500GB 3.5-inch SATA hard drive.

While the “Tiny” version of the Lenovo ThinkCentre M710 doesn’t come with as many ports and connections as the SFF and Tower, it doesn’t lack in anyway. You still get four USB 3.0 ports on the rear, two audio (1 combo) port, two USB 3.0 ports (one for fast charging) on the front, LAN, DisplayPort, and two “Punch Out / Optional” ports.

Since the M710 can be used as a business PC, it comes with some security features, such as TPM 2.0, which keeps data safe and secured. There is also a USB port disablement function that allows you to determine who gets access to USB ports and who does not. Preventing unauthorized use helps to reduce the chances of viruses being uploaded or data being stolen.

One of the best things about the Lenovo ThinkCentre M710 is its affordability. All three sizes are affordable and come with great customization and upgrade options.
