This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many personal computers of this age and spec.
SSD Storage Medium
The M83 Tiny has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most desktop computers of this age and spec. Most similar spec personal computers that were released one year ago have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.
This PC's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed across all desktop computers of this age and spec.
The worst storage speed amongst comparable types of PC is HDD.
It may also be worth considering one of the other SSD computers currently available including the Fujitsu Q520[plb_3102554_price] which has better reviews.
Lenovo Desktop Computers Have Good Reviews
Medium processor core PCs built by Lenovo have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all PCs (not just medium processor core PCs) and found that Lenovo also has good reviews 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 computers of a similar age and spec to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on personal computers that were released around the same time as it.
+7 More reasons for
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This PC has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most frequently found EPEAT compliance on desktop computers of this spec and age.
Quite Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
Medium processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the M83 Tiny have solid-state drive capacities of between 8GB and 1TB, and the average solid-state drive capacity is 210GB. With a solid-state drive capacity of 256 gigabytes, the Lenovo M83 Tiny has a quite big solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as the M83 Tiny.
DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
The M83 Tiny has a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than most personal computers of a comparable spec and age to it. Most desktop computers of a comparable type and age to it have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type. Across all personal computers of this age and type the worst internal memory type is DDR3-SDRAM and the best is DDR4-SDRAM.
Across all the PCs that have been around for more than a year the depths range from 31mm to 590mm. At only 182 millimeters, the M83 Tiny is fairly shallow compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that were released one year ago.
The average weight of medium processor core PCs that were released around the same time as the M83 Tiny is 7.7kg. The Lenovo M83 Tiny is quite light (only 1.3 kilograms) compared to most of the other medium processor core PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the M83 Tiny.
The shortest PC of this age and spec is 9.8mm high, the tallest is 560mm, and the average height is 290mm. With a height of only 34.5 millimeters, the M83 Tiny is one of the shorter medium processor core PCs that have been available for a similar time to the M83 Tiny amongst medium processor core PCs of this age.
8 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
At only 256 gigabytes, the M83 Tiny has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers that came out more than a year ago. Across all the medium processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as the M83 Tiny the total storage capacity range from 4GB to 3.6TB.
If this Lenovo PC total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73[plb_2876853_price] (500GB) which also has a higher rating.
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
The processor clock speeds of PCs of a similar age and type to the M83 Tiny range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz. With a processor clock speed of only 2 gigahertz, the M83 Tiny has one of the slower processor clock speeds amongst medium processor core PCs of this age.
Personal computers with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth looking at include the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_3106865_price] (2.2GHz).
Very Small Internal Memory
The Lenovo M83 Tiny has a quite small internal memory (only 4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the M83 Tiny. The smallest internal memory of medium processor core PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the M83 Tiny is 2GB and the biggest is 64GB.
If this computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the DELL 270[plb_3068921_price] (6GB).
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 comparable spec PCs that came out more than a year ago.
+5 More reasons against
Only One USB 2.0 Port
The M83 Tiny is a one USB 2.0 port personal computer. Most of the other desktop computers that are a similar age to the M83 Tiny have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
At only 16 gigabytes, the M83 Tiny has a quite small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other PCs that have been around for more than a year. Similar spec PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the M83 Tiny have maximum internal memory of between 2GB and 520GB.
Only One Storage Drive
Most personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the M83 Tiny have between 1 and 499 storage drives, including the Lenovo M83 Tiny which has one storage drive.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
Personal computers of a comparable age and type to the M83 Tiny have maximum turbo frequencies of between 1.8GHz and 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz. At only 3 gigahertz, the Lenovo M83 Tiny has a quite slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core PCs that were released one year ago.
