Chart Edit

Just Released Six Months Ago

As one of the newer desktop computers, this desktop computer is likely to use better technology.

Lenovo PCs Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Lenovo desktop computers and also specifically for Lenovo medium processor core personal computers and found that in both cases Lenovo had good ratings compared to other brands.

Quite Big Total Storage Capacity

The smallest total storage capacity of recently released medium processor core personal computers is 32GB and the biggest is 3.3TB. The Lenovo E73 has one of the bigger total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) amongst desktop computers of this age.

If this personal computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the 460-p059na (£449.99) (2TB), or the 550-254na (£479.95) (2TB) both from HP.
