Lenovo today announced the new ThinkCentre E Series line of desktop PCs
designed specifically to meet the technology needs of small businesses – ease,
affordability and reliability. For the first time, ThinkCentre E50 desktops from
Lenovo will offer small business users a simple combination of proven core
technologies in a new silver-accented design, with prices starting at SGD1,189.

According to IDC research, small companies (defined as one to 99 employees) are
primarily focused on business growth (1). Using standard technologies as
building blocks for success, Lenovo E Series desktops can help small companies
focus on growth by helping eliminate the hassle of complex configurations or
cumbersome technology solutions that often require the support of an in-house or
phone-supported IT staff.

"It’s important for small businesses to focus on company growth in order to
succeed. Using complex information technology solutions should not be an
impediment," said Howie Lau, Country General Manager, Lenovo Singapore. "Lenovo
has developed the ThinkCentre E Series line of desktops to offer small business
professionals technology peace of mind. We want to reduce the IT hassles small
businesses face by providing good PC functionality for the ultimate ease-of-use
experience."

The new ThinkCentre E50 tower and small desktop PCs come equipped with the
Intel® 915GV Chipset with GMA 900 graphics and the SIS® 661FX Chipset,
respectively. Both tower and small desktop PCs are available with Pentium® 4
processors and six USB 2.0 ports, including two located on the front of the PC
for convenient access. Toolless-entry covers further enhance the simplicity of
the ThinkCentre E50 desktops by allowing users to easily access select
components for quick repairs or upgrades, without the need for external service
or support.

Think Easy, Think Express
As part of the Think Express program, ThinkCentre E50 tower and small desktop
PCs are available through Lenovo business partners to make decisions and
ordering easy for small business customers. The Think Express program provides a
selection of PCs from entry level to performance models based on input from
small- and mid-sized customers and Lenovo business partners. Models in the Think
Express Program also include select ThinkVantage Technologies, such as Rescue
and Recovery, to help improve business productivity throughout the ownership
experience.

Automatic Crash Recovery
For small businesses, system crashes and viruses can result in loss of
productivity, critical data and money, and can require significant time to
recover. Using Rescue and Recovery preloaded on ThinkCentre E50 desktops, users
can diagnose, get help, and recover from a crash without the need of IT staff,
even if the operating system will not boot. In addition, users can employ an
extra layer of support using Rescue and Recovery by pre-configuring automatic
external backups to a server or external storage.

In the event users need additional help, award-winning PC service and support is
available on the Internet at www.lenovo.com/pc/support with innovative web-based
diagnostic and self-help tools.

Pricing and Availability
The ThinkCentre E50 is available now through select Business Partners. Prices
for the ThinkCentre E50 start at SGD1,189 (2). ThinkCentre E50 systems come
standard with a 1-year carry-in warranty (3). For more information, see
