IBM India announced the launch of a full-functional desktop PC weighing under 6kg.
IBM India announced the launch of the world's smallest full functional desktop PC, the new ThinkCentre S50 ultra small.
Weighing as light as 5.9kg, the S50 includes IBM's Think Vantage Technology and is also IBM's quietest desktop PC ever. The PC will be available immediately in the market, prices ranging from Rs. 38,000 to 48,000 depending upon the configuration.
Featuring IBM ThinkVantage Design, the S50 ultra small is encased in a tool-free durable steel chassis that provides a sturdy pedestal for any desktop monitor. The customer can easily remove all components inside the machine, such as the hard disk and memory.
Neeraj Sharma, Vice President, Personal Computing Division, IBM India, said, "We have demonstrated that we are focused on delivering the best of products and services to our customers over the years. Our goal has always been to meet varied needs of our desktop customers", he said.
"Considering the fact that office space is shrinking in nearly every industry, IBM is changing the way we view desktop PCs. IBM continues to innovate on the desktop and to develop industry-leading Think Vantage Technologies, reducing lifecycle costs and simplifying the overall PC ownership experience", he added.
Companies with space-saving environments that demand high-performance desktops, such as finance and health care companies, will benefit most from the small footprint of the S50 ultra small, which measures 28cm wide by 26cm deep by 8.4cm high.
