Reasons For

7 Reasons For
0.2GHz faster processor clock speed Edit
The Lenovo E93 has a processor clock speed of 3.4GHz, whereas the MSI B85C-060EU is only a 3.2GHz processor clock speed PC (0.2GHz slower). Read more

The speed that the microprocessor executes each instruction or each vibration of the clock. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks, or cycles, to execute each instruction. The faster the clocks rate, the faster the CPU, or the faster it can execute instructions. Clock Speeds are usually determined in MHz, 1 MHz representing 1 million cycles per second, or in GHz, 1 GHz representing 1 thousand million cycles per second. The higher the CPU speed, the better a computer will perform.

A higher processor clock speed means that the computer can complete more calculations every second which means that applications will run faster.

Eight processor threads Edit
The Lenovo E93 has eight processor threads, however the MSI B85C-060EU only has four processor threads.
2MB bigger processor cache Edit
The Lenovo E93 is an 8MB processor cache PC. That's 2MB bigger than the MSI B85C-060EU (6MB).
0.5GHz faster maximum turbo frequency Edit
The Lenovo E93 has a maximum turbo frequency of 3.9GHz, whereas the MSI B85C-060EU is only a 3.4GHz maximum turbo frequency PC (0.5GHz slower). Read more

The turbo boost is an automatic, managed accelleration of the processor when one of the cores is overloaded.

9% faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency Edit
The Lenovo E93 is a 1,200MHz on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency PC. That's 100MHz faster than the MSI B85C-060EU (1,100MHz).
42% bigger maximum on-board graphics adapter memory Edit
The Lenovo E93 is a 1.74GB maximum on-board graphics adapter memory PC. That's 0.72GB bigger than the MSI B85C-060EU (1.02GB).
Lighter Edit
The Lenovo E93 is a 6.7kg heavy PC. That's 3.3kg lighter than the MSI B85C-060EU (10kg).
2 Reasons For
A lot bigger internal memory Edit
MSI B85C-060EU is 8GB memory, but the Lenovo E93 is only a 4GB memory PC (4GB smaller). Read more

A computer's memory which is directly accessible to the CPU.

A higher internal memory will allow the computer to run more quickly.

Two more USB 2.0 ports Edit
The MSI B85C-060EU has six USB 2.0 ports, however the Lenovo E93 only has four USB 2.0 ports. Read more

Number of USB 2.0 ports (connecting interfaces) in the device. USB 2.0 was released in April 2000 (now called "Hi-Speed"), adding higher maximum signaling rate of 480 Mbit/s (effective throughput up to 35 MB/s or 280 Mbit/s), USB 2.0 ports are usually black.

Reasons Against

2 Reasons Against
Vastly smaller internal memory Edit
The Lenovo E93 has an internal memory of 4GB, however the MSI B85C-060EU is an 8GB memory PC (4GB bigger). Read more

A computer's memory which is directly accessible to the CPU.

A higher internal memory will allow the computer to run more quickly.

Two less USB 2.0 ports Edit
The Lenovo E93 is a four USB 2.0 port PC, whereas the MSI B85C-060EU only has six USB 2.0 ports. Read more

The number of processor threads on the MSI B85C-060EU is four, but the Lenovo E93 only has eight processor threads.
34% smaller processor cache Edit
The MSI B85C-060EU is a 6MB processor cache PC. That's 2MB smaller than the Lenovo E93 (6MB).
15% slower maximum turbo frequency Edit
The MSI B85C-060EU has a maximum turbo frequency of 3.4GHz, however the Lenovo E93 is a 3.9GHz maximum turbo frequency PC (0.5GHz faster). Read more

The turbo boost is an automatic, managed accelleration of the processor when one of the cores is overloaded.

10% slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency Edit
The MSI B85C-060EU is a 1,100MHz on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency PC. That's 100MHz slower than the Lenovo E93 (1,100MHz).
71% smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memory Edit
The MSI B85C-060EU is a 1.02GB maximum on-board graphics adapter memory PC. That's 0.72GB smaller than the Lenovo E93 (1.02GB).
Heavier Edit
The MSI B85C-060EU has a weight of 10kg. That's 3.3kg heavier than the Lenovo E93 (10kg).
Older by one month
The MSI B85C-060EU is one month older than the Lenovo E93.
