The Lenovo D20 ThinkStation, the super computer of the future, is a professional strength, exceptionally quick and quiet machine that runs complex and demanding programs with ease and efficiency. The Lenovo D20 ThinkStation has greatly enhanced my life by allowing me to work efficiently without all the delays I had to put up with using my old computers!

As Publisher/Editor-in-Chief of Splash Magazines Worldwide, when I find a service or hidden treasure I like to inform my readers and arm them with as much information as they need to make informed decisions and wise purchases.

Lenovo ThinkStation arrives

Running a global online magazine is never easy and when the Desktop server is outdated, over loaded and honestly, maxed out, it is frustrating and difficult. So I decided to take matters into my own hands and find the perfect desktop server that will meet my current needs and grow with me.

With all the advancements in technology, processors, gigabits, rams and USB capabilities, I knew I needed to create a tech checklist of sorts and decide exactly what I needed before I ended with part and parcel of my original list. What I found after spending hours searching through Google is Lenovo’s ThinkStation D20

After speaking with a Lenovo representative and explaining exactly what I wanted and realizing they understood, I decided to give the go ahead and order. Soon, I received my shipment from Lenovo! A complete custom built desktop workstation with server (ThinkStation), monitor, keyboard and mouse! It was like moving from a 1968 Volkswagen Beetle, which barely met my needs, to a 2012 Maserati that exceeded my expectations!

Although I’m not a gamer if I were I’d be in 7th Heaven. The Lenovo ThinkStation has lightening fast speed and meets the challenges of quick action response necessary in the gaming world.The monitor has a built in camera, with a built in microphone and two USB flash drive ports. Having the USB ports built into the monitor are extremely convenient. 

Lenovo ThinkStation Ratings

Having a computer that responds as quickly as I do, without wait time, downtime, and lost time! I know I get at least 25- 30% more things done than I did with my old computer in that I do not need to wait, loose thought, forget what I wanted to do next, and mostly I have a smile on my face because I do not have the frustration of having to wait for windows, processes or needing to continuously reboot the computer. Lenovo custom built this machjine for my specific needs. My normal Modus operandi is to have approx 80-100 tabs opened in Chrome as well as multiple MS Word docs and SnagitPhotoshop, ThunderbirdPicasa, PowerPoint and other programs all open at the same time and still I have no problems or frustrations or stalls. I just zip from progam to program with no delays and NO HASSLES! 

Lenovo ThinkStation Specs

The video files I and play smoothly. And when it comes to video editing, it truly is a totally new world. As my edits, cuts and dissolves and other editing processes happen now, when I ask in real time, no need to go on a coffee break. It’s amazing! I’m sure you’re tired of hearing this I can’t emphasis enough the pleasure it gives me to use this work horse of a computer. This computer rocks and makes happy! 

My amazing ThinkStation has a Windows Experience Index of 6.6 making it a ‘Beast!” For those of you not aware of what Windows Experience Index is, here is a quote from the Microsoft Website:

“Ever wonder how a PC you own—or want to buy—stacks up against others? The Windows Experience Index is one way to find out. This feature, updated for Windows 7, rates the performance of key hardware components such as the CPU, disk drive, and graphics card. The PC is then given a score between 1.0 and 7.9.When you're shopping for a new PC, the Windows Experience Index can help you find the model that suits your needs. Scoring a PC you already own can help pinpoint slower components worth upgrading. A PC with a score of 2 is typically sufficient for basic tasks like word processing or web browsing. Running the Aero desktop experience requires at least a 3, while graphics–intensive software frequently requires a 4 or higher.”
