The Ebuyer offer was a good deal, but think this is perhaps better as this includes the R2 version of Essentials, as I think Ebuyer was just the non R2 version.

I called them up, and to get the R2 ROK, I was told I needed to order over the phone.. so I did!

Numerous delivery options, I think there may be some free standard delivery codes floating around, but I couldn't find the one I found yesterday, but if I find it, I will add it!

I went for rapid delivery and paid £381.60

FOC WINDOWS SERVER ESSENTIALS ROK WITH THIS SERVER CALL FOR MORE INFORMATION !

If your business is moving up from a desktop environment to its first server, you'll find everything you need in the TS140 - an affordable, durable server with impeccable productivity and manageability features. Thanks to the increased performance of the latest Intel Xeon E3 v3 series processors, with Turbo Boost 2.0, onboard RAID data protection, and powerful HD graphics performance, the TS140 has the power and speed to handle your workload with ease - while keeping your data safe. The TS140 makes clever use of Intel AMT 9.0 to provide out-of-band, cost-effective, remote management of end-user environments - regardless of the managed server's status. Intuitive and secure, the web console works directly out of the box to give point-and-click management tools perfect for branch offices or remote deployments with limited IT resources. At 26dB, the acoustics of the TS140 are 40 percent quieter than previous generations, and impressively quiet for any server - that's less noise than you'll find in a typical library.

Can you add a decent gaming graphics card?


Depends on your definition of decent but look at the Ebuyer deal thread for this as there is loads of info there.

1225 is i5 with gpu
1230 is i7

ROK is £75 not £150 cashback and must be purchased at full price per below.

Yes, but it looks like Windows Server is free with the Server purchase, and the Server itself is eligible for £125 Cashback

Website states no OS. Where are you seeing it is included?

I can see it now. However noticed this this states offer throughout Dec

Original Poster

It says that on SD site, but the offer runs through jan.. as per Lenovo site, the way I see it..

ThinkServer TS140 70A5000KUK 01/01/2015 - 31/01/2015 £150.00 No Conditions.

This is the qualifying model from SD site... 70A5000KUK

2012 ROK is indeed FOC.. but I had seen places that bundle both so you then qualify for £225 cashback but the bundled price is more... swings and roundabouts I think!
Edited by: "DrHotUK" 13th Jan 2015

Bought. Confirmed that OS is included.

So this can only be ordered online?

I ordered on line. Was not told when I called that I needed to order over the phone to get the ROK.

"FOC WINDOWS SERVER ESSENTIALS ROK WITH THIS SERVER CALL FOR MORE INFORMATION !" surely that means it's included and call for further information with regards this product.


NOPE have to call/chat them.

"Thank you, there may be a small wait. An operator will be with you shortly.

Robert says:
Just on the phone bear with me a moment please.
Robert says:
Hi Michael, it isn't added to your order as standard but I will add on now and send them.
Michael says:
Thanks for that! It read to me at first that it was included.
Michael says:
Thank you
Michael says:
Just to make sure, it comes free with the server?
Robert says:
It does but the web charges so we ask you to call just so we can discount it manually for you, otherwise customers may order them on there own and we don't want that.
Michael says:
Ok thanks for explaining, have a good day, bye

Oh yes!

Can the Windows license be sold on legally or is it restricted to the hardware it was purchased with? If yes, how much would you get for it on ebay or the likes?

I very much doubt that it's tied to the actual server you buy but as it's seemingly a Lenovo edition it may be tied to Lenovo servers or a subset of.
For eBay pricing look at the Completed & Sold history there which is easy to do.

can be sold but is tied to lenovo BIOS so can be instaled only on lenovo machines . .

Price has gone up a little, now showing £374.40 at checkout for me. Impressed it has 2012 R2 Essentials but I have already ordered from eBuyer at the weekend.

Can I order online and put a note to include R2?

They had limited stock when the deal was posted (4 or 5) so I'd use on-line chat or the phone to confirm the current status.

Considered it after seeing this today but my eBuyer order shipped yesterday, fingers crossed that eBuyer order actually comes with R2 as well.

Yep, glad I kept the order open, now to play about with getting the server set up.

OS will be getting sold as I can use my free 2012 R2 from dreamsparks student! Making the server cost <£100 hopefully!

Anyone know what brand hard drives are used in these?

I would go with WD Red

Hmmm... Offer now finished for the free Server 2012?

Yes, when I called this morning apparently I got the last one!

Any still around from ebuyer or serversdirect that include the OS?

I emailed them this morning on the off chance and they informed me they had two left, when I called they said it was the last one.
It's getting delivered tomorrow

Mines arrived today, box was immaculate. Will set it up later in the week, going to use Windows 2012 Server from Dreamsparks with the Desktop Experience conversion win2012workstation.com/des…ce/.

Going to put in a 6450 I have, but somewhat tempted to get a 750Ti (doesn't need external power). Not sure on RAM, got another 4gb stick but may upgrade to more later.

I was thinking of putting a 6450 in to give HDMI out, but I am thinking now of using the server with just a monitor and using Plex to stream content to my living room TV instead (current Microserver outputs straight to TV). As for RAM, I might take the 4GB out and put 8GB of non-ECC I have in it, not sure yet but I don't like mixing RAM.
