11 Reasons For

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many latest medium processor core PCs.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

Across all the medium processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the S500 SFF the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 500MHz to 1,400MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,200 megahertz, the S500 SFF has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies amongst medium processor core PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The S500 SFF has a faster storage speed than most comparable spec personal computers that were launched around the same time as it. This Lenovo PC has an SSD storage medium, whereas most similar spec PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time 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.

An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed amongst all medium processor core PCs that were launched in the last year.

Amongst comparable types of PC the worst storage speed is HDD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative SSD desktop computers currently available including cheaper computers such as the DELL 7040 ($569.95), or the Lenovo ThinkCentre M900 Tiny.
