Perspectives ThinkCentre

Gregory Boyd is an internal marketing consultant at Lenovo. He is also a professional photographer, which may give you some insight into why he so loves the visual aspect of Dual Independent Display. Dual Independent Display (DiD) allows me to connect two screens to one computer, which is important for visual artists. A common misconception is that if you replace your old desktop PC with a new all-in-one (AIO) like the ThinkCentre Edge 91z, you lose your old monitor too. But actually ThinkCentre AIOs enable your existing monitor to become a secondary screen.  This means I can use my old ThinkVision monitor or other VGA compatible monitor for new work! If you’re at all like me, your desktop is cluttered with your day’s work and you are likely running several applications at once. Even on a big monitor I run out of viewing space.

It’s style; it’s swagger; it’s the ability to catch and keep attention; the confidence that comes from looking good and knowing it. I know some of you might comment below and say stuff like: “You can’t judge a book by its cover,” and “It’s what’s on the inside that counts.” Anyone who works in the multi-billion dollar fashion or cosmetic industries will call your bluff. You can find thousands of examples where looks matter, even in nature. Take for example a peacock or tropical fish whose genetic survival depends on their ability to look good. I’m sure even Charles Darwin would agree with me here.
