The discrete graphics adapter memory capacities of similar spec PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the P300 Tower range from 1GB to 6.2TB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 2TB.
Medium processor core computers built by Lenovo have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all computers (not just medium processor core computers) and found that Lenovo also has good reviews across its entire range.
+15 More reasons for
Fairly Big Hard Drive Capacity
The smallest hard drive capacity of personal computers of this age and spec is 320GB, the biggest is 2TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 800GB. With a hard drive capacity of 2,000 gigabytes, the P300 Tower has one of the bigger hard drive capacity amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.6 gigahertz, the P300 Tower has one of the faster processor clock speeds amongst similar spec PCs of this age. The average processor clock speed of medium processor core computers that have been available for more than two years is 3.1GHz.
If you are looking for a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the HP Z440 (3.7GHz).
Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity
At 2,000 gigabytes, the P300 Tower has a quite big total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers that were released around the same time as the P300 Tower. Medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago have total storage capacity of between 32GB and 2.3TB.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on PCs of this age and spec.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This PC has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many similar spec computers that came out around the same time as it.
Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency

Six USB 3.0 Ports
The P300 Tower is a six USB 3.0 port computer. Most of the other computers of this spec and age have between one and seven USB 3.0 ports.
Two 5.25" Bays
Most PCs of this type and age have between one and two 5.25" bays, including the P300 Tower which has two 5.25" bays.
Eight Processor Threads
The P300 Tower is a eight processor thread personal computer.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
The smallest processor cache of medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the P300 Tower is 0.51MB and the biggest is 10MB. At 8 megabytes, the P300 Tower has a quite big processor cache compared to most of the other PCs of this age and spec.
Fairly Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the P300 Tower is 510MB, the biggest is 6.2GB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 2GB. The P300 Tower has one of the bigger discrete graphics adapter memory (2,048 megabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the P300 Tower is more than most computers of this type and age. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on computers of a comparable spec and age to the P300 Tower.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This desktop computer supports a GDDR5 discrete graphics memory type, which is the most frequently supported discrete graphics memory type on computers of a comparable type and age to it.
5 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on computers that have been available for more than two years. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative HDD computers currently available including the DELL OptiPlex 3030, or the HP Z230 which is cheaper.
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
The Lenovo P300 Tower is a two USB 2.0 port computer.
Quite Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of desktop computers that were released more than two years ago range from 1GB to 1.8GB. At only 1.024 gigabytes, the Lenovo P300 Tower has a fairly small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago.
Only One PCI Express X1 (Gen 2.x) Slot
Most similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the P300 Tower have between one and two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots, including the Lenovo P300 Tower which has one PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slot.
+2 More reasons against
Across all the personal computers of this age and type the weights range from 250g to 24kg. At 13 kilograms, the P300 Tower is fairly heavy compared to most of the other computers that were released more than two years ago.
2 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo P300 Tower
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when this computer was released.
Average Internal Memory
The P300 Tower has a relatively standard internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age.
It may also be worth considering one of the other 8GB memory computers currently available including the Asus G10AC which is cheaper.
