3 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo P900

Released Over Two Years Ago

This computer was released over two years ago.

Average Internal Memory

The Lenovo P900 has a fairly standard internal memory (16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other computers of a comparable age and spec to the P900.

We compared this PC to all the other 16GB memory personal computers and we think cheaper personal computers such as the HP Z840[plb_2520399_price] is also worth considering.

SSD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is SSD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on personal computers of a comparable spec and age 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.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative SSD personal computers currently available including cheaper PCs such as the Lenovo P700[plb_2552838_price].
