No Core i7 ThinkCentre Desktops?

I was on Lenovo's website to shop for a ThinkCentre Desktop with a Core i7 processor. Couldn't find a single one! Searching the website with "Core i7" as the search term (sans quotes, of course) didn't return a single PC with that processor. Even a search of this Forum turned up empty.

 

Core i7 is not a new product!

 

Does Lenovo not offer desktop PCs with Core i7? Or have I been 'looking for love in all the wrong places'?

Re: No Core i7 ThinkCentre Desktops?

currently the i7 product is not released in the Thinkcentre range, Thinkcentre is mainly designed upon the philosphy of cost effectiveness and power usage efficiency, due to greater consumer demand for these two features. Much of the Thinkcentre machine are sold to corporate or organisation customers, where outright processing power is not required, there is little incentive for Lenovo to release such machines with the i7 CPU due to low customer demand for that particular feature.

 

But given Intel's increased focus on their i5/7 range of cpus, i think there is a good chance of that particular CPU will be implemented in the upcoming revamp of the lenovo thinkcentre/thinkstation range of products.

I understand Lenovo's point of view. Thank you.

This post is from last year. The i7 CPU is now available in the M90 Thinkcentre.

I saw the post for M90 with i7 on the website back in July but when called vendor for the system, they said i7 will not release till fall. Now the fall is here no were to be seen an i7 for Think Center. I would love to have 5-10 units but nowhere to be found.
