Nice system, pricey and missing accessory


We bought this for an Engineer who is doing SolidWorks, but I guess we could've gone the other way and order something less expensive.

System is fast with a xeon processor and comes with an NVIDIA Quadro 600 video card

Comes with NVIDIA Quadro 600 video card but no DisplayPort adapter!! I was expecting it to come along with the machine. It is too pricey to be missing accessories

Lenovo Thnk Station C20 workstation is really great!! The advantage of having multiple RAM slots makes the difference. The user is very happy about the performances.

This PC really surprised me. The one we have has 8G of RAM and is used by someone in our engineering department. Running the graphics from the i5 was plenty powerful.

Great desktop PC pretty good price/performance and well made.. It doesn't have the most expandability in the world, but it has enough for most people, if you are looking for room to expand then you should be looking for a full tower anyway.

Great powerful PC and build really well, have been running for short of a year and have been absolutely bullet proof in the time. Can highly recommend this range of Lenovo machines.
