Lenovo gets serious with cubicle-approved ThinkStation E30 and ThinkCentre M81 desktops

29 Mar

They’re a far cry from being beautiful, but they’re also tremendously more powerful than that joke-of-a-machine you’re using now. In an effort to help those who live and breathe within Excel experience a life filled with fewer frustrations, Lenovo is cranking out a pair of new desktops for the working world. Both the electronic gadgets of ThinkStation E30 and ThinkCentre M81 can be outfitted with Intel’s Sandy Bridge CPUs, and the E30 can be equipped with an 80GB or 160GB SSD, NVIDIA’s Quadro / NVS graphics, up to 16GB of memory, USB 3.0 and a SATA III interface. The M81 steps down a bit with integrated Intel graphics (or a discrete ATI option), but both rigs are optimized for fast start up and shut down time under Lenovo’s Enhanced Experience (EE) 2.0 for Windows 7 program. The bad news? $629 and $599 starting points in order of mention, and you’ll have to wait until late April / early May to get your grubby paws around one. Full release is after the break, per usual.
