Deal Details

I saw this on a clearance board at my local Staples.

Lenovo ThinkCentre M58 Desktop
SKU: 420756

Clearance Price: $199.50

Staples.com Product Listing [staples.com]
Inventory Checker [site88.net]

It may be an interesting buy for someone looking for a cheap desktop computer. The specs indicate that it can be upgraded to 8GB of DDR3, which would run decently with the processor.

I performed inventory checks for a lot of zip codes throughout the northeast and the west coast. These appear to be available at a lot of stores. This is YMMV and I don't recommend calling stores inquiring about this deal.

As I said in the post, this is a good cheap computer. Decent dual-core processor and the ability to bring it up to 8GB of DDR3 memory. Especially since there is another post stating that Staples B&M have 2GB DDR3 Desktop Modules for $4.50. Smilie

nice price for a quality unit. at $199 for lenovo quality it is hot deal

even though it is "regular dual core" it still beat the living snot out of those dual core atoms and amd E-350 machines. (but of course at higher power draw)

Not a bad deal and basically the same deal that was available about a week or two ago... just that this time, no coupon needed. Much better deal if someone has rewards to cash in, or has an OfficeMax/Depot coupon that their stores (ymmv) accept.

One question I have though, which I got wondering about due to the post by geniv. I notice Lenovo gets a lot of attention in this forum overall, and statements like 'for lenovo quality it is a hot deal' got me wondering... why would lenovo be considered necessarily better than anyone else regarding quality, for desktops?

They get a lot of attention due to people mixing up the fact they purchased the naming rights to thinkpads some time ago, from IBM. But that's all it was, they aren't IBM. Yet I have seen people, salespeople in stores, etc. say, they are 'IBM' now.

And for desktops, why would their quality be better than HP, Dell, or anyone else? They all get their parts from China as it is. In Lenovo's case, the company itself is from China.

I'm not saying a Lenovo desktop is a bad brand, nor Lenovo is terrible... just wondering why some people consider them high quality to begin with.

from my personal experience, STAY AWAY from lenovo ideapad laptops! I do believe genuine thinkpad has better quality.

Nothing is perfect, but what I didn't like about them is that they don't acknowledge any bugs/design flaws, and very slow or no response time to come out with patches to fix problems. It feels like you purchased the product, good luck now, just hope it had perfect design, but they never had perfect design in the first place.

Now, I may still purchase a lenovo desktop, due to the fact that desktop is not as sophisticated like laptop, and it's easier to upgrade/fix. Just my 2 cents.

Not sure how much has changed, but even when Thinkpad was IBM, Lenovo was the company making it for them...

good deal
just keep in mind that it's 32-bit w7 so you can only add 1 gb of RAM with the installed OS

I've head that their laptops are still considered decent, or at least their thinkpad line is. Again, wondering where the good reputation as far as desktops comes from. Is it real, or just a carry-over from their thinkpad line, where people assume the entire line-up is good?

As for the 32-bit thing, I'll mention what I did on the same model several weeks ago. You should be able to do a re-install using the same license for 64-bit. Just use an iso or discs, re-install as 64-bit and use code from the side of the machine. Another option is to just go with one of the Linux flavors, 64-bit.

Anybody concerned about the memory, remember that many Staples stores have that 2GB DDR3 desktop memory for $4.50. (SKU 860995)

Low stock item near me... tempted to jump on this to replace wife's older dual core Dell 530 desktop...

Looking at the pic, there is an extra port that looks like it might be hdmi... ;-)
