Good for a home server maybe, but not on an enterprise level.

Let me know where you can find an "enterprise level" server for $499.

I have the Lenovo 110520U - the TS130 with a E3-1235 xeon and absolutely love it. I found it for $400ish refurbished from techforless but I'm also seeing it for $430 new @ bestbuy/antonline HERE [antonline.com]. I absolutely love the machine - insanely quiet, very low power draw, well built. The difference between the processors comes down to a little MHZ bump but also hyper-threading which has been advantageous to me using it as a hyper-v host box. The other difference with my sku is the lack of a hard drive. While called servers, these guys make excellent workstation machines or I guess servers for a hobbyist :) Both come with Intel AMT 7 for management interfaces which is also nice. I highly recommend this rig (either the 11051CU or the 110520U) and would take them any day over anything i3 you find in the same price range. Speed wise mine is on par with an i7-2600 and even better at virtualization specific tasks. If you are a serious gamer, look elsewhere because while the processor is fantastic, the expandability is low for high end graphic cards.

This is like a cheap desktop with a Xeon thrown in.

When you look inside the box, there are only two hard drive slots. You could probably rig one into the RDX space if you didn't want to go that route for backup. But I can' tell if there's a SATA port for the 3rd drive.

I'd say this is only really good so long as you don't expect to need more than 2 x 2TB storage.

This is a workstation.... what kind of business uses Lenovo servers?

apath 10-13-2012 01:42 PM

The kind that was screwed by Dell.

I need some desktops for work. These look nice especially with a three year warranty. From what I can tell, it does not have an OS. Anyone know for sure?

CPUBENCHMARK.NET has it sandwiched between an AMD FX-8150 Eight-Core and an Intel Core i7-2920XM @ 2.50GHz

What's the problem with Dell? I do hear about a lot of complaints of Dell servers....
My bottom lines Dell and HP can provide enterprise level services.... I can't even get to a live person at Lenovo tech support during business hours.... have been on hold for forever....

My experiences with Dell support have been absolutely horrible. I would definitely not recommend Dell!

Just about any business that uses IBM for consulting. All IHG hotel properties for example.

IBM hasn't left the server market like they did with the Thinkpad lines.
You can still IBM servers and thats what we run.

Interesting. IBM has us running overpriced Lenovo workstations and servers at every IHG property we open.

IBM servers and Lenovo servers are totally different things I guess...

Chat with NewEgg about this. The response was:

"In order to resolve this situation, I will need to submit a ticket to our internal helpdesk so they can investigate this further. Once we receive a response, one of our helpdesk representatives will follow up directly with you within 3-5 business days."

nodeuces 10-13-2012 08:32 PM

Newegg also shows this as having 32GB max ram, and that is untrue. 16GB max.

Probably why the code has been pulled.

I've seen inside two Redbox's when they have been open while I was at the store and they both were running Dell OptiPlex's.

psg190 10-13-2012 11:07 PM

I picked this up at the Lenovo Outlet site as a new machine for $320 the other day. Still trying to decide if I should keep it to replace my HP N40L Proliant MicroServer. I'm thinking of putting Windows Server Essentials 2012 on it.

nodeuces 10-14-2012 08:53 AM

Did any of you Dell vs. Lenovo thread hijackers read any news this week? Dell was PASSED by Lenovo as the #2 PC Vendor. http://www.pcworld.com/article/24...endor.html
