This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core desktop computers that are a similar age to it.
Six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most personal computers of a comparable type and age to the P300 SFF have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the P300 SFF which has six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This desktop computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on similar spec PCs that have been available for a comparable time to it.
Lenovo Desktop Computers Have Good Reviews
Lenovo has good average reviews for its medium processor core desktop computers as well as across its entire personal computer range compared to other brands.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
The average processor clock speed of PCs that were launched more than two years ago is 3.1GHz. At 3.6 gigahertz, the Lenovo P300 SFF has a fairly fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the P300 SFF.
SSD Storage Medium
The P300 SFF has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most 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 across all similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to the P300 SFF.
The worst storage speed amongst similar types of PC is HDD.
