When you are looking into the entry-level workstation market, you want the best bang for your buck in both performance and serviceability. Performance should be your primary consideration; you don't want to purchase systems that will be under performing with increasing demands later on down the line.
Designing systems that are well balanced in component selection, offer high performance, serviceability, installation options, and allow for expansions later on, is no easy task. Budgets are also very tight these days, so these machines need to be competitively priced, and offer value to the workspace.
To take this design challenge head on, Lenovo came up with the ThinkStation P300 Tower Workstation. The P300 comes in a tower form factor; alternatively, there is a small form factor design available.
The P300 workstation we have in the lab today is a tower form factor, outfitted to higher-end specifications. Let's get to unboxing and exploring the new P300 from Lenovo.
After opening the shipping box, we find the contents inside are well protected by foam inserts. There is an accessory box at the top, and a boxed keyboard down the side. The accessory box includes a power cord, a software and manual disk, and installation instructions.
Here we get a look at the supplied keyboard and mouse that come with the P300, the Lenovo USB Slim Keyboard (New F5) Win8.1 English and Lenovo USB Optical Wheel Mouse. We used these in our tests, and found they are functional, and work very well. Nothing fancy here, but they do work just fine.
The disks that come with the P300 allow for upgrading to Windows 8.1, and include recovery disks.
