    ThinkCentre M79 Small Form Factor DesktopFeatures

    Small Form Factor Design

    The small form factor (SFF) desktops weigh in at 14.6 lbs and is designed to fit into tight spaces—supports both horizontal and vertical orientations.

    Platform Stability

    The M79 desktop features 15-month platform stability with no planned hardware changes that affect the preloaded software image. Image stability for long-term deployments helps to reduce transition, qualification, and testing costs to ensure savings for your business.

    Multiple Monitor Display

    Maximize productivity with triple independent display support. The expanded work area and easier navigation between applications helps reduce errors and improve productivity as you extend your desktop across four monitors. Requires optional discrete graphics card.

    Solid Security & Manageability

    M79 desktops include some of the best security tools available in the industry, including smart USB protection, which disables ports to help prevent data theft and network security risks against unauthorized use of storage devices. RAID 0,1 support adds data protection, as well as Trusted Platform Module (TPM), which encrypts data and key information like passwords and digital certificates, further securing applications, electronic transactions, and online communication. Desktop/mobile Architecture for System Hardware (DASH) provides a host of capabilities to tighten system security and to address growing IT requirements through remote manageability. And for extra security, the ThinkCentre M79 is Opal-HDD ready, which means that full hardware data encryption can be provided so that data is safe no matter what happens to the drive—especially useful for large enterprise and government sectors.

    Advanced Wireless

    WiFi and Bluetooth are both available as options on M79 desktops, including industry-leading Bluetooth security lock.

    Advanced Thermal Design

    Our Intelligent Cooling Engine (ICE) 2 is designed to provide a balance between thermals and acoustics resulting in long desktop life. With two optimized settings, you choose the performance mode that best suits your work environment, prioritizing temperature or sound. Plus, ICE 2 allows for working in hotter temperatures and enables system monitoring with thermal alerts that preempt overheating possibilities.
