Opted out for a purchase from PC Canada vs. Amazon due to their proximity, shipping rates and item price. Did not regret it. The price was the lowest of everyone online and in-store, the item was shipped the same day and arrived pronto. Will be shopping here again.
Thermal Design: Elegant & Efficient
Patented tri-channel cooling with just 3 system fans - as opposed to 10 that other workstations typically rely on - and a direct cooling air baffle directs fresh air into the CPU and memory. ThinkStation P500 delivers new technologies and design to keep your workstation cool and quiet.
Optional Flex Module
The innovative Flex Module lets you customize I/O ports, so you add only what you need. Using the 5.25" bays, you can mix and match components including an ultraslim ODD, 29-in-1 media card reader, Firewire, and eSATA.
Optional Flex Connector
The Flex Connector is a mezzanine card that fits into the motherboard and allows for expanded storage and I/O, without sacrificing the use of rear PCI. It supports SATA/SAS/PCIe advanced RAID solution. ThinkStation P500 includes one available connector.
Improved Design & Functionality
We've redesigned our ThinkStations. No more bulky handles, just a clean-looking, functional design. Integrated handles make it easier to carry and move they systems, or place into a rack.
ThinkStation P500 is certified to run key professional independent software vendor (ISV) applications, including Adobe, Autodesk®, Dassault, PTC, SolidWorks, Avid, and Siemens. Additionally, this workstation includes error correcting code (ECC) memory, which drastically reduces the possibility of memory-related errors and critical data loss.
Multiple Monitor Display
Maximize productivity with independent display support for up to three independent monitors using Mosaic Mode with integrated Intel® graphics. Plus, connect to up to 16 independent monitors with 1.2 stream cloning mode.
Fast Data Transfer
With USB 3.0 ports, you can move data quickly between your workstation and other devices. SuperSpeed USB 3.0 enables file transfer up to 10 times faster than previous USB technologies, which allows for lightning-fast copying of large media files, as well as seamless connections between audio- and video-related devices. Backward-compatible with USB 2.0 devices.
Modular Components & Tool-Free Expandability
Innovative modular design makes tool-less upgrades a snap, especially with Flex Trays for fully configurable storage and interchangeable power supplies and graphics cards - especially beneficial when working with multiple workstations.
The ThinkStation P500 continues the long legacy of unmatched reliability touted by Lenovo single and dual processor workstations. It's built with the same efficient thermal design and employs a cooling process that makes ThinkStation workstations stand out from the competition.
