Looks like Lenovo just spilt the beans on their first Windows Home Server model, the IdeaCenter D400. The company just posted a teaser image of the product and have promised more information will be released this week.

Having a little dig around the web uncovers additional information from a number of Chinese websites. The D400 was released over in Asia on August 5th, and as you can see from the shots below looks similar in many ways to Acer’s Aspire easyStore Home Server with four hot swappable drive bays housed in a black plastic, cube shaped chassis.

In terms of connectivity, the D400 packs 4 USB ports and an eSATA port. Power consumption is reported at just 40W.

Looks like a hardware monitor add-in is included with the home server – nice job with the graphics.

No official word on full hardware specs or pricing at this point, or indeed where Lenovo are going to release the home server outside Asia. However, given they released the above teaser image via Twitter, my guess is that we’ll see the D400 at least in the USA, if not elsewhere.
