At its annual Tech World Conference 2018 in Beijing, Lenovo has taken the wraps off a rather stunning new PC design. The characteristic form of the new Lenovo Titanium Enterprise PC will be instantly recognisable to anyone with even a passing interest in sci-fi as a likeness of the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-A) from Star Trek.

We have seen very many bizarre PC designs at these kinds of shows and exhibitions before. However, there are a few noteworthy points about Lenovo's officially licensed by Paramount CBS effort. Firstly, it sports great specs which will appeal to gamers, and secondly it sounds like it is going to be sold worldwide rather than just being a trade-show curiosity - at a reasonable price.

Concerning the Lenovo Titanium Enterprise PC tech specs, Chinese site MyDrivers provided many details and I've bullet pointed them below:

  • An unnamed (perhaps user configurable) 9th gen Intel Core CPU with factory overclock and 120W TDP
  • An Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card
  • 32GB DDR4 RAM
  • 1TB M.2 SSD plus 2TB HDD
  • Killer LAN and Killer Wi-Fi networking
  • Front mounted 400 Lumen projector
  • Programmable RGB LED lighting

In the images and video you can see the power button is situated in the 'intake' of the space ship's cigar shaped section and the selection of ports are mainly, if not all, in the adjustable base/stand for the PC. Disappointingly, the projector doesn't fire its imagery from the phasers array or photo torpedo section. Instead a segment of the top disc lifts up to reveal the projector lenses.

Pricing is said to be in the 15,000-20,000 Yuan region (US$2,180 to $2,910, or £1,670 to £2,225). This might vary due to processor and other options. The Lenovo Titanium Enterprise PC design is licensed for distribution in 25 countries worldwide but we don't have any info about possible sales and distribution outside of China.

It could have an Atom in it - I just want that PC for the case!

Maybe it's just me but I don't remember the enterprise ever having those big lumpy sections going up to the nacelles….

Pretty sure with the way laptop hardware is now they could have made it so it could fit in the saucer section without the need for the extra bits and the main tube body could have been used for the psu, it's not like pico psu's don't exist.

Admittedly this wouldn't be able to run a rtx 2080 but it would at least be more accurate to the ship, something I'm sure a star trek fan, ie someone who would buy this, would be wanting over pure performance.

The reason they probably have to do that is for a full sized card and TBH its not really that noticeable from the front - at the very least it means the case has some degree of an upgrade path,as laptop parts mean that you would need an MXM card which is not so easy to get hold off.
I know it's been done for space reasons but those big slabs attached to the nacelle pylons really spoil the aesthetics. :(
Comes with a 2080? Does that mean it will it reach Warp 10 with DLSS enabled?
