Lenovo just debuted a new compact work station, with a volume of just one litter. In this small package it fits high end tech, available on much bigger work stations. The machine is called Lenovo ThinkStation P320 Tiny and it measures just 1.4 x 7.1 x 7.2 inches.
The secret to achieving such a small footprint is the externalization of the 135 W power adapter. The P320 Tiny comes with an Intel Kaby Lake processor, with a TDP of up to 35W. It comes with two DDR4 SODIMM slots and two M.2 NVMe SSD slots. There are also quite a few I/O ports here, like audio jacks upfront and six USB 3.0 ports at the front and rear.
We’ve also got a RJ-45 GbE port and six display outputs (4x mini DisplayPort and 2 DisplayPort). The CPU can include an Intel Core i7-7700T, so the PC can become quite powerful. A Quadro GPU takes care of the graphics part and the P320 Tiny is promoted as compatible with applications like AutoCAD for example. WiFi and Bluetooth are also available and we’ve got a main custom board here, larger than a mini STX one, but also smaller than an ITX one.
The OS can be Windows or Linux and the Lenovo P320 Tiny starts at $799.
