Lenovo ThinkStation C30


The Lenovo ThinkStation C30 high-end workstation stuffs two Xeon processors and Quadro graphics into a desktop-size chassis.

Compact for a dual-processor system. ISV certified graphics. Rack mountable. Very good internal expandability.

Still not anything you'd call "compact" or "small form factor." Only two USB 3.0 ports.
