Woot has new ThinkStation P300's:

Intel Xeon E3-1245 v3 Quad-Core 3.4GHz 16GB DDR3 256GB Solid State Drive

http://computers.woot.com/offers/lenovo-thinkstation-xeon-quad-core-desktop

 

The 5.25" bays are seperated by a bar, so you cant install a big drive cage.

It appears the SSD is mSATA, so that would free up a drive bay.

16GB included, max 32GB. Is the 16GB two or four modules?

Bet it's the same case as the TS140.

 

Edit: It is a TS140 with a different facia going by this review: http://www.caddigest.com/exclusive/cad_hardware/103114_lenovo_thinkstation_p300_review.htm

 

The 280W PSU is a bit mean too, my TS140 came with a 450W 80Plus Platinum.  That P300 comes with a 280W 80Plus Bronze.  The SSD isn't mSATA either, it'll be a 2.5" in a 3.5" tray.

Dave, the TS140 is the same machine, comes with a better PSU, and is cheaper.  I got my E3-1225v3 TS140 for half that price, and even had a free copy of Server 2012 Essentials.

Newegg currently has a TS140 XEON E3-1225 v3 3.2GHz with 4GB of memory for $349, Add in 16GB of memory $175 and a 256GB SSD for $100 = $625

Yeah, even with 4 7200rpm drives, 2 DIMMs, the Xeon, 2 SSDs in my TS140 it peaks at 90W from the wall, and idles with the drives spinning at just under 50W.  CPU fully loaded it goes to about 80W.  Everything idling and drives spun down it's less than 25W.  

 

The 280W PSU is fine even with a GPU.

 

I've no idea why they bothered fitting an 80Plus Platinum 450W to the model I got, it's seriously over-specced.
