This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many comparable spec personal computers that have been around for the last year.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
At 3.7 gigahertz, the Lenovo E73 has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other PCs that have been available for around the same time as the E73. The slowest processor clock speed of few processor core desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the E73 is 0.8GHz and the fastest is 3.7GHz.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 3.7GHz processor clock speed computers currently available including cheaper personal computers such as the Lenovo S500.
Few processor core desktop computers manufactured by Lenovo have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all computers (not just few processor core desktop computers) and found that Lenovo also has good ratings across its entire range.

7 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The Lenovo E73 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port computer. Most of the other few processor core desktop computers that were released in the last 12 months have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor
The average max memory bandwidth supported processor of recently released few processor core desktop computers is 29GB/s. With a max memory bandwidth supported processor of only 25.6 gigabytes per second, the Lenovo E73 has one of the slower max memory bandwidth supported processor amongst few processor core desktop computers of this age.
Very Small Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of only 500 gigabytes, the Lenovo E73 has a quite small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other few processor core desktop computers that came out around the same time as the E73. Recently released desktop computers have hard drive capacity of between 500GB and 2TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 640GB.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on few processor core desktop computers that have been around for the last year.
+4 More reasons against
With a weight of 7.5 kilograms, the Lenovo E73 is one of the heavier similar spec desktop computers that have been available for the last year amongst few processor core desktop computers of this age. The weights of new few processor core desktop computers range from 440g to 15kg.
Very Low System Bus Data Transfer Rate
The Lenovo E73 has a quite low system bus data transfer rate (only 5 Gigatransfers per second) compared to most of the other recently released desktop computers. The lowest system bus data transfer rate of PCs that have been available for around the same time as the E73 is 5GT/s, the highest is 8GT/s, and the average system bus data transfer rate is 6.2GT/s.
The heights of latest PCs range from 27mm to 500mm. With a height of 397 millimeters, the Lenovo E73 is one of the tallest latest similar spec desktop computers amongst computers of this age.
3 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo E73
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the Lenovo E73 has a pretty average total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers that are a comparable age to the E73.
There are a number of other 500GB total storage capacity PCs currently available that you might want to consider including the Lenovo E73 which is cheaper.
If this personal computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Acer Veriton X2640G (1TB).
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the Lenovo E73 has a fairly average internal memory compared to most of the other few processor core desktop computers that came out in the last 12 months.
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many few processor core desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other HDD personal computers currently available including cheaper computers such as the Alienware Steam Machine ($339.99).
Personal computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth considering include the DELL OptiPlex 3040 (SSD).
