This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to it.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been available for a similar time to it.
Lenovo is one of the better rated desktop computer manufacturers according to average reviews from owners and experts, and Lenovo also has good ratings for its medium processor core computers.
SSD Storage Medium
The Lenovo M83 Tiny has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most desktop computers of a comparable age and type to it. 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.
An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage speed amongst all medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed amongst comparable types of desktop computer.
We compared all the other SSD personal computers to this computer and we think because of it's better review score, the Zotac ZBOX CA320 nano is also worth considering.
PCs with a faster storage speed that might be worth looking at include the Apple Mac Pro (Flash).
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many personal computers of this age and type.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to it.
+6 More reasons for
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This PC has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most frequently found EPEAT compliance on personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
The M83 Tiny has a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than the DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type found on most computers that have been available for around the same time as it. The best internal memory type of all medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as the M83 Tiny is DDR4-SDRAM and the worst is DDR3-SDRAM.
The shallowest personal computer of this age and spec is 33mm deep and the deepest is 1,800mm. At only 182 millimeters, the M83 Tiny is quite shallow compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that came out more than two years ago.
The lightest medium processor core computer that has been on the market for around the same time as the M83 Tiny is 250g heavy, the heaviest is 24kg, and the average weight is 8kg. At only 1.3 kilograms, the M83 Tiny is quite light compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that came out more than two years ago.
With a height of only 34.5 millimeters, the M83 Tiny is one of the shorter computers that came out more than two years ago amongst PCs of this age. Medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the M83 Tiny have heights of between 19mm and 560mm, and the average height is 280mm.
5 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of only 180 gigabytes, the M83 Tiny has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as the M83 Tiny. The smallest total storage capacity of medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago is 32GB, the biggest is 2.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 720GB.
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
The processor clock speeds of medium processor core computers that have been around for more than two years range from 1GHz to 4.1GHz. The M83 Tiny has one of the slower processor clock speeds (only 2.2 gigahertz) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
If this desktop computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 (2.9GHz).
Very Small Internal Memory
Across all the computers of this age and type the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB. At only 4 gigabytes, the M83 Tiny has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the M83 Tiny.
If this computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Fujitsu CELSIUS W530 (8GB).
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
The Lenovo M83 Tiny is a two USB 2.0 port desktop computer. Most of the other personal computers of a similar spec and age to the M83 Tiny have between two and nine USB 2.0 ports.
+2 More reasons against
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
The M83 Tiny has a quite slow maximum turbo frequency (only 3.2 gigahertz) compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable age and type to the M83 Tiny. Medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as the M83 Tiny have maximum turbo frequencies of between 1.3GHz and 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.
