Lenovo preps a workstation for new CAD users

Lenovo has announced the new ThinkStation E32 workstation, the latest in its long-running line of specialized business computers. The E32 is designed as an entry-level computer for those who work with computer-aided design (CAD) programs and comes in both tower and small-form factors. On certain models, the E32 will have a pre-loaded  60-day trial of the AutoCAD LT 2014 drafting software. 

The ThinkStation E32 has been tested and certified to support the latest applications from Autodesk, Adobe, Dassault Systémes, PTC and Siemens to make sure the workstation is an ideal entry level-platform for CAD and AEC (architecture, engineering and construction) users.

The ThinkStation E32 small form factor offers a compact design and weighs only 17.2-pounds. The tower version gives users added expandability with the ability to increase graphics support with a Nvidia Quadro K600 card up to a K4000 card.

Key specs on all E32 models include Intel Xeon E3-1200v3 processors and up to 32GB ECC memory in four DIMM slots. The E32s are configurable with up to three hard drives with 3T storage capacity each.

Most E32 workstations can run Microsoft Windows 8 Pro. The Lenovo ThinkStation E32 tower and small form factor systems will be available starting Sept. 6, with a starting price of approximately $729.
