Lenovo on Tuesday unveiled its TS200v ThinkServer model, an Intel Core i3 and i5-powered unit that's intended for small and medium businesses and starts at less than $400.
The company's bid: that it can leverage its enterprise-friendly name and services in the SMB market.
The TS200v comes with options for Intel Celeron (G1101), Pentium (G6950), Core i3 (530) and i5 (540, 650, 660, 670) processors and Intel's 3450 chipset, which supports Intel AMT 6.0, Rapid Storage Technology 9.5, AT-p (TDT) and offers Quiet System Technology, integrated MAC and integrated graphics with PAVP 1.5.
On the memory side of things, 4 uDIMM slots fit DDR3 unregistered chips. The unit can fit up to two 3.5-inch SATA hard drives, which are not hot-swappable, cabled, and support SATA RAID 0 and 1 configurations.
The TS200v also has a DVD-ROM or DVD-RW option for its optical drive.
Out back you'll find single Gigabit Ethernet, 1 PCIe X 16 slots, 1 PCIe x 1 slot, 2 PCI slots, 10 USB 2.0 slots, 1 DB9 COM port, 1 DB-15 VGA connector and 1 DP.
The system is Energy Star Server 1.0 and built with 65 percent recycled plastics, Lenovo says.
The 14.54-inch tall, 6.89-inch wide, 16.34-inch long tower is managed by Intel Active Management 6.0 for Core i5 models and standard management for the rest.
A release date was not announced.
