HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that came out in the last 12 months. 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.

Other HDD computers currently available which you might want to look at include the Aspire XC-705[pl_2782875_price], or the Veriton X2640G[pl_3623416_price] both from Acer which is cheaper.

If you are looking for a computer with a faster storage speed then you might also want to consider the HP ProDesk 400 G3 SFF[plb_3187993_price] (SSD) which is also cheaper.

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 2.9 gigahertz, the Lenovo E73 has a fairly typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other latest comparable spec PCs.

We compared this PC to all the other 2.9GHz processor clock speed PCs and we think cheaper personal computers such as the Lenovo S500 SFF[plb_3285164_price] is also worth considering.

If this desktop computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to consider the HP 280 G2[plb_3726319_price] (3.2GHz and cheaper).
