11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on computers that have been around for a similar time to it.
Medium processor core PCs produced by Lenovo have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all computers (not just medium processor core PCs) and found that Lenovo also has good ratings across its entire range.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on comparable spec personal computers that were released more than two years ago.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on computers that are a similar age to it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many PCs that are a similar age to it.
+5 More reasons for
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most frequently found EPEAT compliance on medium processor core PCs that have been around for more than two years.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Lenovo M83 SFF is more than most medium processor core PCs that came out more than two years ago. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on personal computers of this age and spec.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to it.
Across all the medium processor core PCs that have been around for more than two years the heights range from 19mm to 3,400mm, and the average height is 280mm. At only 102 millimeters, the M83 SFF is quite short compared to most of the other medium processor core PCs that are a similar age to the M83 SFF.
6 Reasons Against
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of medium processor core PCs that came out around the same time as the M83 SFF range from 850MHz to 860,000MHz. The Lenovo M83 SFF has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (only 1,100 megahertz) amongst similar spec desktop computers of this age.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core PCs that were released more than two years ago. 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.
Very Small Hard Drive Capacity
The M83 SFF has a quite small hard drive capacity (only 500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other computers of this spec and age. Across all the similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to the M83 SFF the hard drive capacity range from 320GB to 3TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 800GB.
If this medium processor core personal computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the DELL XPS 8700[plb_2716106_price] (1TB).
Quite Small Processor Cache
The smallest processor cache of personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the M83 SFF is 0.51MB and the biggest is 10MB. The M83 SFF has one of the smaller processor caches (only 6 megabytes) amongst comparable spec PCs of this age.
+3 More reasons against
Only Four Processor Threads
The Lenovo M83 SFF is a four processor thread personal computer.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
At only 3.2 gigahertz, the M83 SFF has a fairly slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the M83 SFF. The maximum turbo frequencies of desktop computers of a comparable spec and age to the M83 SFF range from 1.3GHz to 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.
4 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo M83 SFF
Released Over Two Years Ago
Lenovo released the M83 SFF over two years ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3 gigahertz, the Lenovo M83 SFF has a pretty typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers of this type and age.
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the M83 SFF has a pretty typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been around for more than two years.
If this desktop computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the DELL XPS 8700[plb_2716106_price] (1TB).
+2 Other reasons
