The Lenovo ThinkCentre M90n Nano is a useful mini PC that has enough power for everyday tasks, office work, and media enjoyment. However, at the same, this Lenovo tiny mini desktop PC is not much faster than similarly well-equipped Ultrabooks. Considering the high price between $500 to $1300 listed on Amazon, and also the need for an external monitor, an ultrabook may be the better choice.
The good thing in advance: The ThinkCentre M90n Nano Lenovo mini PC is extremely compact and fits almost anywhere on (or under) a desk or TV. The main advantage is a small size. Lenovo also offers a VESA mounting system for sale, which allows the M90n Nano to be mounted on the back of a display. Performance is high enough for most use cases, such as smooth video stream playback, surfing or office work. This makes the M90n Nano also good as an HTPC.
Further advantages are the good operating temperatures and the possibility of operating two NVMe SSDs in RAID. Lenovo small computers are robust and well-processed. Moreover, thanks to the numerous ports (4x USB 3.1 Gen. 2 Type-A, 2x USB 3.1 Gen. 2 Type-C and more) it is possible to connect many peripherals.
However, buyers here are also one or the other compromise. The most obvious disadvantage is the price. The ThinkCentre M90n Nano (Core i7-8665U, 8GB RAM, 512GB NVMe SSD, Windows 10) costs ~ $1,299 at Amazon store. The price of the installed hardware is still relatively high.
It is also important to note that an additional keyboard, mouse, and screen is required. A mid-range Ultrabook offers a similar or higher performance level, is more practical on the go and similarly expensive due to the built-in display.
In addition, you can upgrade the M90n Nano mini PC windows only conditionally. The CPU is soldered to the motherboard and the memory is either soldered or hard to reach. Therefore, you should take the time to consider your own computing needs before making the purchase. In addition, the lack of the HDMI port may be an obstacle in some situations.
The M90n Nano mini desktop PC has a full-size DisplayPort and one of the USB-C ports on the back panel can also be connected to a display connected to an HDMI monitor or TV does require a special adapter.
