Lenovo ThinkStation D30


The Lenovo ThinkStation D30 is the big stick in your golf bag. It's a powerful, expandable, professional level workstation that users will use to create digital media like animated movies, explore for gas and oil, or create designs for large items like...

Lots of expansion space and internal connectors. Dual eight-core Xeon processors with Hyper-Threading. Nvidia Quadro graphics. 1,120-Watt power supply

Massive. Pricey. Only two USB 3.0 ports. Only 300GB hard drive out of the box

The Lenovo ThinkStation D30 is a monster workstation for really big projects that need to be done, right away. With dual 8-core power , ISV-accepted Quadro graphics, and more expansion room than you know what to do with, this is the workstation to get.

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.
