4 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo M73

Released Ten Months Ago

This medium processor core desktop computer was released ten months ago.

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 500 gigabytes, the Lenovo M73 has a relatively average total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the M73.

We compared all the other 500GB total storage capacity desktop computers to this PC and we think the Acer Veriton X2632G[plb_2854035_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this medium processor core desktop computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the HP 400 G2.5[plb_3288096_price] (1TB and cheaper), the Acer Aspire X3-710[plb_3359054_price] (1TB and cheaper), or the Alienware Steam Machine[plb_3359792_price] (1TB and cheaper).

HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been around for the last year. 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.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other HDD PCs currently available including cheaper desktop computers such as the HP 550-254na[plb_3730369_price].

If you would prefer a PC with a faster storage speed then you might want to look at the OptiPlex 3040[pl_3242115_price] (SSD and cheaper), or the OptiPlex 3040[pl_3357451_price] (SSD and cheaper) both from DELL or the HP ProDesk 400 G3 SFF[plb_3187993_price] (SSD and cheaper).

Average Processor Clock Speed

The Lenovo M73 has a fairly average processor clock speed (2.9 gigahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out in the last 12 months.

If you are looking for a PC with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the 400 G2.5[pl_3288096_price] (3GHz and cheaper), or the 400 G2[pl_3355100_price] (3GHz and cheaper) both from HP.
