This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on medium processor core computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on medium processor core computers that were launched more than two years ago.
Lenovo Has Good Desktop Computer Reviews
We calculated the average ratings for all Lenovo personal computers and also specifically for Lenovo medium processor core computers and found that in both cases Lenovo had good ratings compared to other brands.
SSD Storage Medium
The M83 Tiny has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most PCs of this age and spec. Most comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to 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.
This computer's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed amongst all medium processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to the M83 Tiny.
Amongst comparable types of computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on computers that were launched around the same time as it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many PCs that have been available for a comparable time to it.
+6 More reasons for
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This PC has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been available 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 most desktop computers of a comparable age and type to it. Most personal computers that are a comparable age to it have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type. The internal memory type of all personal computers of this type and age ranges from DDR3-SDRAM (worst) to DDR4-SDRAM (best).
The M83 Tiny is one of the lighter PCs that have been available for more than two years (only 2.3 kilograms) amongst medium processor core computers of this age. PCs of a similar spec and age to the M83 Tiny have weights of between 250g and 24kg, and the average weight is 8kg.
The shallowest similar spec PC that has been around for a comparable time to the M83 Tiny is 33mm deep, the deepest is 1,800mm, and the average depth is 350mm. The M83 Tiny is quite shallow (only 182 millimeters) compared to most of the other computers that were released more than two years ago.
At only 65 millimeters, the M83 Tiny is quite short compared to most of the other computers that came out around the same time as the M83 Tiny. The shortest personal computer of this age and spec is 19mm high and the tallest is 560mm.
4 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
Across all the personal computers of this type and age the total storage capacity range from 32GB to 2.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 720GB. With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the M83 Tiny has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers that were released more than two years ago.
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
At only 2.2 gigahertz, the M83 Tiny has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other computers that are a similar age to the M83 Tiny. The processor clock speeds of comparable spec PCs that were released more than two years ago range from 1GHz to 4.1GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.
Only Three USB 2.0 Ports
Most desktop computers that are a comparable age to the M83 Tiny have between two and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the M83 Tiny which has three USB 2.0 ports.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
With a maximum turbo frequency of only 3.2 gigahertz, the Lenovo M83 Tiny has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The maximum turbo frequencies of medium processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to the M83 Tiny range from 1.3GHz to 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.
