This is a little bit of a DIY project, but most of the work here is already done.
The quad-core Lenovo ThinkServer TS440 is currently on sale for just $299.99 when you buy from TigerDirect. And while this configuration normally sells for $829.99, today’s deal will instantly save you $530—a whopping 63 percent off the sticker price. Even better, the shipping is free.
On the inside, this model features a quad-core 3.2GHz Intel Xeon processor, integrated Intel HD Graphics P4600, 4GB of RAM, and a DVD burner. Keep in mind, this is a barebones server, though. It doesn’t ship with an operating system or a hard drive. This is a little bit of a DIY project, but most of the work here is already done. So if you’re comfortable installing drives yourself, this is a superb bargain.
Why bother investing in server hardware anyway? Besides the powerful Xeon-class CPU, it also has loads of room for expansion. It offers two 5.25-inch drive bays, four hot-swappable 3.5-inch drive bays, four RAM slots (room for 32GB), three PCIe slots, a PCI slot, and eight USB ports. If affordable versatility is what you’re looking for out of a tower, the ThinkServer TS440 is what you need.
Additionally, it’s 80 Plus Gold certified and Energy Star qualified, so you can rest assured that it won’t be needlessly running up your power bill. And if you run into hardware problems, it’s covered by a one-year manufacturer warranty. If you’ve ever wanted a server of your very own, this truly is the perfect opportunity.
