To date, we have looked at several small form factor PC’s from Lenovo that span a range of different sizes and capabilities, including the ThinkCentre M720q Tiny, ThinkStation P320 Tiny, and ThinkCentre M90n Nano. Lenovo crafted an even smaller PC called the ThinkCentre M90n Nano IoT. This is a compact PC intended as an edge IoT device for use in retail, hospitals, and manufacturing facilities, to name a few use cases. The M90n Nano IoT has an industrial look to it with its fanless construction. However, it does not lack in capabilities with 4G LTE and a wide array of ports and storage.

Our review unit came with standard Lenovo packaging and also included a keyboard and mouse to round out the packaging. The M90n Nano IoT weighs in at 1.58 lbs with dimensions of 7.05” x 3.46” x 01.36”.

  1. I was a bit curious about the naming also. I don’t develop for IoT in the last, and found myself wondering what IoT use this box has. BUT, it would be handy for signage for instance.
