The M78 is meant for medium to large businesses and features the newest AMD A-Series Accelerated Processing Units (APUs)! The ThinkCentre M78 will be available in small form factor or the classic tower form. It features RapidBoot HDD Accelerator, which will speed up your Boot-Up Time. This way you can get to work faster and with all of the work you are doing, the M78 won’t get hot because of it’s Intelligent Cooling Engine. This makes it extremely reliable, running quietly, and keeping it cool. All of these 3 advantages put together will expand the life of your computer. As I mentioned before the M78 has AMD A-Series APUs with up to 32GB DDR3 memory, this will give you accelerated performance which will give you better multitasking, smoother playback of video, and better experience with the operating system.

In terms of ports you get 4(four) USB 3.0 SuperSpeed ports, this means you’ll experience 10x the data transfer rate of Hi-Speed USB. Having green technology is becoming more and more important, well the M78 has many certifications/compliances including ENERGY STAR 5.2 compliance, EPEAT Gold rating, Cisco EnergyWise energy management architecture, and UL Environment Gold rating. And if you want to be even more green you can get the majorly efficient 80 Plus Platinum power supply unit (PSU).
