Lenovo has unveiled entry-level workstation. The starting price is around $729.
ThinkStation E32 is designed for professionals working in computer-aided design, product development and architecture.
Lenovo on Wednesday said ThinkStation E32 is available with Intel Xeon E3 and 4th generation Intel Core i7 and Core i5 processors.
On select models, Lenovo said that the E32 comes with a 60-day free trial of Autodesk AutoCAD LT 2014 drafting software, which helps design professionals create precise 2D CAD drawings that can be easily edited and shared.
The 60-day trial of AutoCAD LT on the Lenovo ThinkStation E32 makes it easy for customers to start their AutoCAD LT evaluation.
“The ThinkStation E32 is built for the design and engineering community and is an ideal workstation for running AutoCAD LT,” said Sheila Parker Tolle, senior director of ecommerce and small business marketing at Autodesk.
The ThinkStation E32 is powered by Microsoft’s Windows 8 Pro and is certified to run many key applications from professional independent software vendors (ISV), including Adobe, PTC, SolidWorks and Siemens PLM.
It comes with 1600 MHz DDR3 Memory DIMMs.
“Modeling and design work can be extremely time intensive. Many design revisions and iterations take place, with data running in the background, to get to a final product,” said Rob Herman, director of Product and Vertical Marketing, ThinkStation business unit, Lenovo.
Both ThinkStation E32 models offer professional graphics capabilities with the option of NVIDIA’s latest Quadro graphics cards (up to K4000 in the tower and K600 in the SFF) as well as Intel P4600 HD graphics.
