The compact, entry-level ThinkStation E32 is designed for 2D CAD users facing space and budget restrictions.
Yesterday Lenovo announced the ThinkStation E32, an entry-level workstation available in tower and small form factor (SFF) versions. The ThinkStation E32 is marketed toward product design and AEC professionals working in 2D, as well as users in the medical-imaging, media and entertainment, and financial services industries.
Select configurations of the ThinkStation E32 come loaded with a 60-day trial of AutoCAD LT 2014. "The ThinkStation E32 is built for the design and engineering community and is an ideal workstation for running AutoCAD LT," said Sheila Parker Tolle, senior director of ecommerce and small business marketing at Autodesk.
