Lenovo’s ThinkStation S10 and D10 workstations are based on the upcoming Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5400 series and Intel Core 2 Extreme processors, the first processors based on new 45-nanometer manufacturing process that doubles the density of transistors on the chips for ‘new levels of energy-efficient performance.’

Lenovo’s Vice President and General Manager for Emerging Products Group, Peter Schrady said, “Lenovo designed the ThinkStation to be the highest performance, highest quality workstation, delivering an unparalled experience for professional users who work in graphically and computationally intensive environments where a standard desktop PC isn’t enough. Not only do the Lenovo workstations provide excellent performance and industry-leading acoustics, our environmentally responsible, user-centric design helps to increase productivity even more.”

Lenovo is also collaborating with leading independent software vendors to obtain the certifications that ensure seamless hardware and software interaction and the company will be offering a variety of storage, graphics adapters, memory, and rail kits for the workstations.

Lenovo’s new workstation will also be offering models that comply with the Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star 4.0 requirements to help users manage energy usage and costs. The workstations feature 80 percent efficient power supplies and contains more than 50 percent recycled plastics content, the company says.

The workstations include a removable top handle for easy transport as well as a side cover latch for easy access to the system. It will also have illuminated front I/O ports to help users work more easily in multiple system and low light conditions. Finally, the workstations come equipped with a range of ThinkVantage Technologies including Rescue and Recovery, Client Security System and Image Ultra Builder.

The ThinkStation workstations will be available in January through Business Partners or the Lenovo website and will have an RRP of $1,100 and $1,765 for the ThinkStation S10 and the ThinkStation D10 respectively.
