Here's the complete blog detailing this update from Dell.

Separately, Lenovo has shipped an SMB server line that includes some configurations that are compliant with Energy Star for Servers.

The newest additions to the ThinkServer line include the TD200 and TD200x towers and the RD210 and RD220 rack servers. They all support Xeon 5500 series processors and can be configured with up to 128 gigabytes of DDR3 memory. Their storage capacity: 12 hard drives in the rack or up to 16 in the towers. Lenovo claims that the servers use 30 percent less power than comparably configured systems; the power supplies used in the servers are more than 92 percent efficient.

Pricing for the RD210 rack configurations starts at $1,699, while pricing for the TD200x begins at $2,699.
