Lenovo (LNVGY) has released details of its new ThinkCentre M57/M57P Eco ultra small desktop PC, the first desktop PC from any manufacturer to receive GreenGuard certification.
GreenGuard certification means that the ThinkCentre M57/M57P was tested for up to 2000 different chemical emissions. GreenGuard Environmental Institute has certified more than 150-thousand products and materials for emissions of volatile organic compounds and other chemicals. The ThinkCentre M57/M57P is EPEAT Gold rated, Energy Star 4.0 rated, and the first ThinkCentre with recycled material from consumer plastics.
"We are quite proud to say the ThinkCentre M57/M57P is the first desktop ever to meet our rigorous standards for chemical emissions," said Carl Smith, GreenGuard Environmental Institute CEO in the United States. "Lenovo is leading the industry in its commitment to environmentally responsible computing."
"In addition to environmental responsibility our business customers have demanded more manageability and lower operating costs – all in a very small design," said Fran O'Sullivan, senior vice president of products, Lenovo. "With the M57/M57P we raised the bar by developing a small, compact offering that provides the highest levels of manageability and security while operating with less power consumption and noise."
