This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
Lenovo has good average ratings for its medium processor core computers as well as across its entire computer range compared to other manufacturers.
SSD Storage Medium
The Lenovo M83 Tiny has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as it. Most medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as it 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.
An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed amongst all personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the M83 Tiny.
The worst storage speed amongst comparable types of PC is HDD.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many desktop computers of this age and spec.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as it.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This PC has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
+7 More reasons for
Eight Processor Threads
The M83 Tiny is a eight processor thread PC. Most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to the M83 Tiny only have between four and seven processor threads.
Quite Big Processor Cache
At 8 megabytes, the Lenovo M83 Tiny has a quite big processor cache compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for a similar time to the M83 Tiny. The average processor cache of personal computers of a similar spec and age to the M83 Tiny is 6.6MB.
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 medium processor core computers that have been on the market for more than a year. The best internal memory type of all computers of a similar age and spec to the M83 Tiny is DDR4-SDRAM and the worst is DDR3-SDRAM.
With a depth of only 182 millimeters, the M83 Tiny is one of the shallower PCs of this spec and age amongst medium processor core computers of this age. Across all the medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the M83 Tiny the depths range from 31mm to 760mm, and the average depth is 350mm.
Across all the PCs that were launched more than a year ago the weights range from 38g to 23kg, and the average weight is 7.6kg. At only 1.3 kilograms, the M83 Tiny is quite light compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to the M83 Tiny.
At only 34.5 millimeters, the Lenovo M83 Tiny is fairly short compared to most of the other PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the M83 Tiny. Across all the medium processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to the M83 Tiny the heights range from 9.8mm to 560mm, and the average height is 290mm.
6 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
At only 192 gigabytes, the M83 Tiny has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that came out around the same time as the M83 Tiny. The smallest total storage capacity of medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as the M83 Tiny is 4GB, the biggest is 3.6TB, and the average total storage capacity is 770GB.
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
At only 2.2 gigahertz, the Lenovo M83 Tiny has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to the M83 Tiny. Similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the M83 Tiny have processor clock speeds of between 1.3GHz and 4GHz.
Very Small Internal Memory
At only 4 gigabytes, the M83 Tiny has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that were released more than a year ago. Computers that came out around the same time as the M83 Tiny have internal memory of between 2GB and 64GB.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This personal computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on comparable spec desktop computers that have been available for more than a year.
+3 More reasons against
Only One USB 2.0 Port
The M83 Tiny is a one USB 2.0 port desktop computer. Most of the other desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the M83 Tiny have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
With a maximum turbo frequency of only 3.2 gigahertz, the Lenovo M83 Tiny has a quite slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the M83 Tiny. The slowest maximum turbo frequency of medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as the M83 Tiny is 1.8GHz and the fastest is 4.4GHz.
