6 Reasons Against
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
Across all the personal computers of this age and spec the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 700MHz to 1,300MHz. At only 1,100 megahertz, the Lenovo M83 Mini Tower has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that were released one year ago.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to 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.
If the storage speed of this computer is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the Fujitsu W530 (SSD).
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many desktop computers of this age and spec.
Quite Small Hybrid Hard Drive (H-HDD) Capacity
The M83 Mini Tower has a quite small hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacity (only 500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were launched more than a year ago. Across all the medium processor core computers that were released one year ago the hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacities range from 8GB to 2TB, and the average hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacity is 930GB.
+3 More reasons against
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
The M83 Mini Tower has a quite slow maximum turbo frequency (only 3.3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other PCs of this age and type. The average maximum turbo frequency of PCs of this spec and age is 3.6GHz.
Across all the desktop computers of this age and type the weights range from 38g to 23kg, and the average weight is 7.6kg. The M83 Mini Tower is one of the heavier computers that were released one year ago (11.2 kilograms) amongst comparable spec PCs of this age.
5 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo M83 Mini Tower
Released Over a Year Ago
This computer was released over a year ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.1 gigahertz, the M83 Mini Tower has a relatively standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the M83 Mini Tower.
If you want a desktop computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the Acer Veriton X4630G (3.2GHz).
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the M83 Mini Tower has a relatively average total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the M83 Mini Tower.
If this desktop computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF (1TB).
