This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many PCs of a comparable type and age to it.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
The Lenovo Q190 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter base frequency (350 megahertz) compared to most of the other desktop computers of this type and age. The average on-board graphics adapter base frequency of few processor core computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Q190 is 350MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 200MHz to 800MHz.
Lenovo Has Good PC Reviews
Few processor core computers produced by Lenovo have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all computers (not just few processor core computers) and found that Lenovo also has good ratings across its entire range.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L2|L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many computers that have been around for more than two years.
Supports One Case Placement
The number of placements supported by the Lenovo Q190 is more than most few processor core computers that were launched more than two years ago. This computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most commonly supported case placement supported by desktop computers that were released more than two years ago.
Has One Memory Slot
The Lenovo Q190 has a greater number of memory slots than most similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to it. The most commonly found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this personal computer.

Across all the computers of this spec and age the heights range from 22mm to 450mm. With a height of only 22 millimeters, the Lenovo Q190's height is one of the shortest amongst desktop computers of a similar spec and age to the Q190.
9 Reasons Against
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
At only 1,000 megahertz, the Lenovo Q190 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other few processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the Q190. Across all the personal computers of a similar spec and age to the Q190 the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 750MHz to 1,200MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of only 1.6 gigahertz, the Lenovo Q190 has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that were released more than two years ago. The processor clock speeds of comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to the Q190 range from 1GHz to 3.9GHz.
If this personal computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the Zoostorm Intel Celeron 1037U (1.8GHz) which is also higher rated.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on desktop computers of a similar age and type to it. 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.
Alternative HDD computers currently available that you might want to consider include the Zoostorm Intel Celeron 1037U which has better reviews.
If the storage speed of this personal computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the Shuttle DSA2LS (Flash) which is also cheaper.
Only Supports Six Compatible Memory Cards
The Lenovo Q190 has a greater number of compatible memory card than most computers of a comparable age and spec to it. This computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most frequently supported compatible memory card supported by personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Q190. The compatible memory cards "Memory Stick (MS)", "MMC", "MS PRO", "SDHC" and "SDXC" are also supported by this desktop computer.

Quite Small L3 Cache
Desktop computers of this age and spec have L3 caches of between 1MB and 4MB. With a L3 cache of only 2 megabytes, the Lenovo Q190 has a fairly small L3 cache compared to most of the other few processor core computers that were released more than two years ago.
Only Two Processor Threads
Most PCs of this spec and age have between one and three processor threads, including the Lenovo Q190 which has two processor threads.
Quite Small Processor Cache
At only 2 megabytes, the Lenovo Q190 has a fairly small processor cache compared to most of the other PCs of a similar spec and age to the Q190. Across all the computers that were released more than two years ago the processor caches range from 0.51MB to 4MB, and the average processor cache is 2.9MB.
Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory
The average maximum internal memory of PCs of a similar age and spec to the Q190 is 16GB. With a maximum internal memory of only 8 gigabytes, the Lenovo Q190 has a fairly small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and spec.
Very Slow Hard Drive Speed
The Lenovo Q190 has a quite slow hard drive speed (only 5,400 revolutions per minute) compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and type. The slowest hard drive speed of personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the Q190 is 5,400 RPM, the fastest is 7,200 RPM, and the average hard drive speed is 6,900 RPM.
4 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo Q190
Released Over Two Years Ago
