The Lenovo ThinkStation S20

The Lenovo ThinkStation S20 is what the company is calling a personal "supercomputer," thanks to Intel chips, Nvidia and ATI graphics and a SATA hard disk drive that supports up to 1TB of data storage.

Lenovo Goes for the Green

In an effort to show its Green IT side, Lenovo is using recycled content, in this case reused plastic water bottles, to help build the S20 and D20. For both machines, about 30 percent of the plastic comes from recycled plastic.
