4 Reasons Against

Poor Connectivity

One Lenovo M73 reviewer who reviewed it considered that it was not good in terms of HDMI connections.

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

The slowest on-board graphics adapter base frequency of computers of a comparable spec and age to the M73 is 100MHz and the fastest is 690MHz.

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many few processor core computers that were released more than a year ago. 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.

There are a number of alternative HDD desktop computers currently available which you might want to consider including the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2229962_price], the Acer Extensa M2610[plb_3068619_price], or the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 SFF[plb_2977787_price] which is cheaper.

If you want a PC with a faster storage speed then you might want to look at the Acer Chromebox CXI[plb_2775942_price] (SSD) which is also cheaper.

Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity

The smallest hard drive capacity of similar spec desktop computers that came out more than a year ago is 320GB and the biggest is 2TB. With a hard drive capacity of only 500 gigabytes, the Lenovo M73 has one of the smaller hard drive capacity amongst few processor core computers of this age.

We compared all the other 500GB hard drive capacity computers to this desktop computer and we think cheaper desktop computers such as the EliteDesk 800 G1[pl_2229962_price], and the EliteDesk 800 G1[pl_2901416_price] both from HP is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a PC with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might also want to look at the HP 300-235na[plb_3818279_price] (1TB).
