A Workstation is a special computer designed for technical or scientific applications, workstation is a computer intended for individual use that is faster and more capable than a personal computer. Intended primarily to be used by a single user, they are commonly connected to a local area network and run multi-user operating systems. It's intended for business or professional use (rather than home or recreational use). Workstations and applications designed for them are used by small engineering companies, architects, graphic designers, and any organization, department, or individual that requires a faster microprocessor, a large amount of random access memory (RAM), and special features such as high-speed graphics adapters. Historically, the workstation developed technologically about the same time and for the same audience as the UNIX operating system, which is often used as the workstation operating system. Among the most successful makers of this kind of workstation are HP and Dell Workstations Computer. Whatever your professional-strength needs, Lenovo creates the tools relied upon by industry leaders—from architects, product designers, financial traders, medical and research professionals, to software designers and engineers.
