Lenovo ThinkStation P320 Tiny packs raw power into a small body

Lenovo has taken the wraps off what it says is the smallest ever workstation with ISV certification: the Lenovo ThinkStation P320 Tiny. As the name suggests, this desktop PC is quite small, measuring in at just 1.4 x 7.1 x 7.2-inches with a weight of 2.9lbs. Despite its small size, Lenovo packs a load of features into this PC, not the least of which is up to a 7th-gen Intel Core i7 processor and up to 32GB of RAM.

Lenovo introduced the new model today at TRANSFORM, saying its new tiny beast offers all the power of a workstation, but in a small form factor. You can fit the P320 Tiny on a desk of just about any size...or even put it on a bookcase shelf or inside a (well-ventilated) drawer. Though small, the desktop is able to meet the needs of businesses and demanding users, including those who use AutoCAD, Solidworks, and other power-hungry software.

As mentioned, this ThinkStation model offers up to a 7th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, as well as up to NVIDIA Quadro P600 graphics (or Intel integrated, alternatively), plus up to 2TB of storage and 32GB of RAM. The computer boasts a wide number of ports, including a couple DisplayPorts, four mini-DisplayPorts, four USB 3.0 slots, Ethernet, a WiFi antenna, and security lock.

Users can mount the PC via a VESA mount if they'd like, or alternatively use an under-desk or sandwich mount, making it suitable for many applications. The unit can include a wireless mouse and keyboard, and can power the company's own 27-inch ThinkVision P27q Ultra HD IPS monitor. As mentioned, there's ISV certifications for many applications and uses, including Vectorworks, Solidworks, AutoCAD, Revit, Solid Edge, Creo, MicroStation, and more.

Lenovo's new P320 Tiny is available to buy now starting at $849 USD.
