Lenovo's new ThinkStations  (Source: Engadget)
Lenovo expands its "Think" series

Lenovo is branching off into the workstation arena with its new ThinkStation family of products. Lenovo today introduced two ThinkStation workstations based around Intel's new 45nm Penryn micro architecture.

The new ThinkStation D10 features two processor sockets and supports Intel's quad-core Xeon 5400 series processors. The ThinkStation S10, on the other hand, uses Intel's new Core 2 Extreme QX9650 processor.

Both models come equipped with dual GbE network ports and multiple drive bays and USB 2.0 ports for expansion. Lenovo notes that both systems feature NVIDIA graphic solutions, but failed to give specifics.

Lenovo also touts the eco-friendliness of the D10 and S10 as both models are EPS Energy Star 4.0 compliant, feature power supplies that are over 80 percent efficient and contain over 50 percent of the materials used in construction of the chassis' has been recycled.

"For professional users of graphically and computationally-intensive applications who require a level of performance unattainable with a standard desktop PC, ThinkStation is Lenovo's best engineering at work," said Lenovo executive director of Emerging Products Marketing Tom Tobul. "In addition to offering Lenovo's highest performance and quality with leading-edge acoustics, the workstations also have an environmentally-responsible, user-centric design that further drives productivity."

Although the D10 and S10 were announced today, the systems won't actually begin shipping until January 2008. At that time, the D10 will feature a base price of $1,739 while the S10 will start at just $1,199.

I would not order them. you can stack the cases. when you have hundreds of machines, its convient to stack them on a pallet, wrap them in plastic and use a hand-truck or a forklift to move them around. i guess i could stack on the side but then it gets more scratched then necessary. also unused machines get stacked along a wall

"you can stack the cases"

I'm guessing you mean "you can't stack the cases"

In what business do you stack unboxed computers on pallets or against walls? These are expensive workhorses - not 20 year old Dell's.

Oh, and as far as "stacking," the D10's are rack-mountable with a 3rd party kit.
