This “Nano” sized workstation is described as being smaller than an old VHS tape, yet it still offers full support. It’s able to pack a whole lot of good hardware in its small form factor. With the Lenovo ThinkCentre M90n, users can get the same amount of performance as a full size workstation, without having to compromise space. It also uses less power – as much as 15% less energy than a regular desktop computer.
Ports and Graphics
Since it’s small enough to literally hold in one hand, the “Nano” obviously has ports placed all around it. On its front, there is a power button, USB-C port (3.1 Gen 2), headphone / microphone port, and two USB 3.1 (Gen. 2) ports. On the other side, there is a DC-in port, another USB 3.1 (Gen 2) port and USB-C 3.1 (Gen 2) port, DisplayPort (full-sized), Kensington lock slot, and RJ45 port.
While it isn’t a graphics powerhouse, it’s still capable of delivering good graphics performance for its price, size, and configuration. There are integrated Intel UHD graphics (620).
The reason for the price discrepancy is obviously due to the various configurations available – and there is even an option to build your own. The Lenovo ThinkCentre M90n comes with various 8th Generation Intel Core processors (i3, i5, i7), up to an i7 8665U with vPro, 8-threads, 4-cores, and 8MB cache. Speed ranges from 1.90-GHz up to 4.80-GHz with Turbo Boost technology.

Security and Build
Despite its small size, the M90n is tough and durable. It has undergone military-specifications requirements testing and meets it all, as well as other quality checks. This “Nano” device can actually withstand extreme weather conditions, such as being exposed to desert sand and Arctic cold.
Speaking of its size, the starting weight of this little ThinkCentre workstation is just 1.1-lbs, and it measures (in inches) 7.05 x 3.46 x 0.87 – W x D x H.
