This ChannelPro editor has been all for upgradable all-in-one (AiO) solutions, often finding the useful life of a monitor far exceeds the performance life of its internals. Many other integrators feel the same way, offering solutions with things like Intil NUCs attached to the back of a regular monitor, simplifying the ability to upgrade and service deployments (after all, it's a lot easier to grab or ship a NUC than it is a 27" display).
Kudos to Lenovo for seeing this trend and supplying an elegant solution for businesses. The Tiny-in-One 27 is a 27" all-in-one shell (for lack of a better term), meaning the parts of an AiO like the screen, cameras, etc. It serves as the base of the solution, which allows you to elegantly slide in whatever ThinkCentre Tiny solution that fits a particular need into a slot on the back. As technology evolves or performance needs increase (or when you need to service a unit), you slide out the Tiny PC on the back and slide the new one in.
As far as whats included, going this route gives you far more than just a monitor with a slot on the back. This 27" solutions is packed with additonal ports, Windows Hello IR cam, privacy features, anti-glare filter, and even a display port to link to another external display.
