The Lenovo ThinkCentre M60Q Chromebox is a compact desktop computer with an Intel Alder Lake processor, support for up to 32GB of RAM, and support for eMMC or SSD storage.
Lenovo first introduced the M60Q last September, and then revealed detailed specs in December. Now entry-level models are available for purchase for around $300.
The entry-level configuration features an Intel Celeron 7305 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of eMMC 5.1 storage, and it’s available from multiple retailers including Walmart and Newegg, but interestingly not from Lenovo.com (where it’s still listed as “coming soon.”
Higher-priced configurations are expected in the future, with support for up to 32GB of RAM and up to an Intel Core i5-1235U processor. The memory and storage are also user-upgradeable thanks to two SODIMM slots and M.2 2242 and M.2 2280 slots.
