Lenovo has kick-started a new range of entry-level workstations with the introduction of its ThinkStation E20.

The familiar-looking workstation, pictured above, features the customary ThinkStation carry handle but is both smaller and cheaper than existing models.

Starting at under $600, the ThinkStation E20 aims to offer professionals a decent amount of power at an affordable price. Buyers can choose to configure their system with a choice of Intel processors - including models from the Pentium, Core i3, Core i5 and Xeon 3400 lines - along with integrated Intel HD graphics or a discrete NVIDIA Quadro solution.

Despite the low starting price, the ThinkStation E20 also offers support for Error Correcting Code (ECC) DDR3 memory.

Boosting its eco-friendly credentials, Lenovo adds that more than half of the ThinkStation E20 is constructed from recycled plastic materials. What it really wants to know, though, is are you - the professional user - likely to opt for a budget workstation as opposed to a traditional desktop PC? It'll find out soon enough, as the ThinkStation E20 is scheduled to hit retail later this month.

I'm a big Lenovo fan. Whilst their boxes tend to look clunky & retro, it's all good solid no nonsense kit! Plus their Laptops are great.

However the $600 price tag seems to equate to £759.05 according to the Lenovo website and not ~£385. Shame, because at that price point it would have been a real winner!
