Last week my three year old daughter watched Toy Story for the first time. Not surprisingly, Woody, had a big effect on her. After the movie, she spent a lot more time with her older toys. She had a new found appreciation for the toys who comforted her as she made the leap from baby to “big kid”.
I think that is how I feel about the ThinkStation 30 Series. On August 12, Lenovo introduced the new ThinkStation P Series; the products that will replace the 30 Series. The response has been incredible. The press, customers, hardware and software partners, are all very excited about the new products. And a lot of extremely talented people have worked tirelessly, with an intense focus on the customer, to make the P Series a reality. I think I speak for many of my colleagues when I say, the P Series has truly been a labor of love.
But what about 30 Series? What about Woody? Without question, the new ThinkStation P Series takes workstation computing to new heights. But doesn’t the 30 Series deserve an appropriate send off? Because, honestly, without the ThinkStation 30 Series, there is no P Series.
From the time it was introduced, the 30 Series delivered exactly what you would expect from a Think branded workstation; high quality, ultra-reliable, and of course….it was black. The 30 Series took the Lenovo workstation business from being a baby, and made it relevant.
With the new P Series, we looked to greatly improve the usability of the system by incorporating a tool-less, clean, modular design. By supporting the latest technology, P Series delivers an unprecedented level of performance. But we also wanted to build upon the foundation of the 30 Series, making the P Series even more reliable….and of course, black.
So with much reverence and a tip of the hat, all of us in the Lenovo workstation business unit say “so long” to the ThinkStation 30 Series. It’s been a great ride, thank you for the memories.
