+4 More reasons for
Fairly Big Processor Cache
The smallest processor cache of desktop computers of this type and age is 2MB and the biggest is 10MB. With a processor cache of 8 megabytes, the Lenovo H50 has a fairly big processor cache compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the H50.
Two PCI Express X1 Slots
The Lenovo H50 is a two PCI Express x1 slot PC.
Supports One Case Placement
The number of placements supported by the Lenovo H50 is more than most PCs of this age and type. This computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by desktop computers that were released more than a year ago.
4 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The Lenovo H50 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port PC.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many comparable spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as 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.
We compared this PC to all the other HDD computers and we think cheaper desktop computers such as the Aspire X3-710[pl_3192160_price], and the Aspire TC-705[pl_3095333_price] both from Acer or the Alienware X51[plb_2373451_price] is also worth considering.
The Lenovo H50 has a greater number of memory slots than most desktop computers of a comparable type and age to it. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this computer.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
The Lenovo H50 is a two USB 3.0 port desktop computer.
+1 More reason against
5 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo H50
Released Over a Year Ago
This desktop computer has been on the market for over a year.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The Lenovo H50 has a relatively standard processor clock speed (3.1 gigahertz) compared to most of the other PCs of a comparable type and age to the H50.
If you are looking for a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the DELL 5040[plb_3140759_price] (3.2GHz) which is also cheaper.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the Lenovo H50 has a relatively average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other similar spec computers that came out more than a year ago.
Alternative 1TB hard drive capacity computers currently available that you might want to consider include cheaper desktop computers such as the DELL Precision T1700[plb_2754957_price].
If you want a personal computer with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might also want to consider the Alienware X51 R2[plb_2881842_price] (2TB), the Lenovo H50[plb_2963587_price] (2TB), or the Acer Aspire TC-705[plb_3095333_price] (2TB) which is also cheaper.
+3 Other reasons
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the Lenovo H50 has a relatively standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 1TB total storage capacity personal computers currently available including cheaper personal computers such as the DELL Precision T1700[plb_2754957_price].
If this personal computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the Alienware X51 R2[plb_2881842_price] (2TB), the Lenovo H50[plb_2963587_price] (2TB), or the Acer Aspire TC-705[plb_3095333_price] (2TB) which is also cheaper.
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the Lenovo H50 has a pretty typical internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 8GB memory computers currently available including cheaper desktop computers such as the OptiPlex 9020[pl_2395416_price], or the OptiPlex 9020[pl_2408953_price] both from DELL or the Alienware X51[plb_2373451_price].
If this medium processor core desktop computer internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Acer Aspire TC-705[plb_3095333_price] (12GB), or the HP 800 G2[plb_3797297_price] (16GB) which is also cheaper.
