ThinkStation C30 Workstation Features

Compact Design
Small form factor (SFF) workstations provide the ultimate performance with full-featured scalability, yet weigh only about 18.5 kg.
ISV Certification
ThinkStation C30 is certified to run many key professional independent software vendor (ISV) applications, including Adobe, Dassault, PTC, SolidWorks, Avid, and Siemens. Additionally, C30 includes error correcting code (ECC) memory, which drastically reduces the possibility of memory-related errors and critical data loss.
Multiple Monitor Display
Maximize productivity with independent display support for up to four independent monitors using Mosaic Mode with Intel® graphics, and manage your entire workspace in one view with NVIDIA® nView® desktop management software.
Fast Data Transfer
With 6 USB 3.0 ports (two in the front and four in the rear), plus 3 USB 2.0 (one internal), you can move data quickly between your workstation and other devices. SuperSpeed USB 3.0 enables file transfer up to 10 times faster than previous USB technologies, which allows for lightning-fast copying of large media files, as well as seamless connections between audio- and video-related devices. Backward-compatible with USB 2.0 devices.
Solid Security & Manageability
ThinkStation C30 workstations include some of the best manageability and security tools available in the industry. The Trusted Platform Module (TPM) encrypts data and key information like passwords and digital certificates, further securing applications, electronic transactions, and online communication. A Kensington lock slot makes it easy to physically secure your workstation. Plus, support for Intel® vPro™ technology means you can have one-touch setup that allows deployment and configuration of the technology on up to two-thirds of your install base within minutes.
Unmatched Reliability
The ThinkStation C30 continues the long legacy of unmatched reliability touted by Lenovo single- and dual-processor workstations. It's built with the same efficient thermal design and employs a tri-channel cooling process that makes ThinkStation workstations stand out from the competition.
Green Leadership
ThinkStation workstations are GREENGUARD® certified and feature up to 80 Plus Platinum for 92% efficient power supplies.
Priority Technical Support
You demand a lot from your system and Lenovo Services help you stay productive. Bypass basic troubleshooting support with direct access to advanced-level technicians to resolve issues quickly. Add Priority Technical Support to your purchase.
