Releases D400 in an effort to gain market share

Lenovo is the latest company to join the fray that has become the Windows Home Server market space. While the new IdeaCenter D400 has already launched in Asia as of August 5th, the company will be bringing it to North America and Europe, as well.

The D400 features a ThinkPad-like color scheme of orange and red in a cubed chassis that features four hot swappable drive bays for easy upgrading as well as replacement. The D400 offers two USB ports as well as an eSATA port. It is reported that the unit just consumes about 40 watts.

While the rest of the hardware specs are a bit of a mystery at the moment, it does include a very nice graphical hardware monitor add-in for Windows Home Server that will help you keep tabs on your D400.

The cost is also a bit of a mystery, but it is expected that when it launches in North America it will be priced about the same or a little less than competing models from HP and Acer. The home server and networked attached storage space battle continues to heat up, with users looking for ways of both backup, archiving and sharing of files. The Windows Home Server devices have been lagging a bit behind some of the other solutions being offered primarily due to pricing, but it seems with more players in the market space pricing could become a bit more competitive in the near future with the amount of features continuing to climb.
