Earlier, we looked at Lenovo's entry-level workstation, the ThinkStation P300 tower workstation that offered both performance and serviceability.
Next in line for mainstream workstations, Lenovo enters with its new ThinkStation P500 Tower Workstation. The P500 comes equipped with the latest Haswell-E socket 2011-E support for more demanding applications, and the ability to use considerably more memory, more capable processors, and powerful graphics options.
Let's get to unboxing, and have a good look at the new P500 from Lenovo.
Like other Lenovo products we have received, we find the shipping box to be well padded with large foam inserts to protect the workstation. There are two accessory inserts, these contain the power cord, mouse, and documentation, and there is a keyboard on the side of the box.
Here we get a look at the supplied keyboard and mouse that comes with the P500. These are the same keyboard and mouse that came with the P300 we reviewed earlier, the Lenovo USB Slim Keyboard ((New F5) Win8.1 English), and the Lenovo USB Optical Wheel Mouse. We used these in our tests, and found them to be functional, and work very well. Nothing fancy here, but they work just fine.
Our review sample did not come with software disks, but we assume retail products will. These are the disks that come with the P300, and allow for upgrading to Windows 8.1, and included recovery disks.
