10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology

This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many computers of a comparable age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Gold EPEAT Compliance

This personal computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

Narrow

At only 160 millimeters, the Lenovo M73 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the M73. The narrowest medium processor core desktop computer that has been available for more than a year is 33mm wide, the widest is 510mm, and the average width is 180mm.

Chart Edit

13 Reasons Against

Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

The Lenovo M73 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port personal computer. Most of the other computers that have been around for more than a year have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the M73 the max memory bandwidth supported processor range from 10GB/s to 68GB/s. The Lenovo M73 has one of the slower max memory bandwidth supported processor (only 25.6 gigabytes per second) amongst comparable spec PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many similar spec personal computers that have been on the market 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 think you might also be interested in some of the alternative HDD PCs currently available including cheaper computers such as the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (£258.83).

If the storage speed of this desktop computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (£353.43) (SSD) which also has a higher rating.

Very Small Internal Memory

The Lenovo M73 has one of the smaller internal memory (only 4 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. Across all the personal computers of this type and age the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB.

We compared all the other 4GB memory desktop computers to this personal computer and we think the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (£258.83) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

PCs with a bigger internal memory that might be worth considering include the 270 (£349.99) (6GB), or the OptiPlex 9020 (£358.80) (8GB) both from DELL or the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF (£359.99) (8GB).

Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity

The smallest hard drive capacity of PCs that have been around for a similar time to the M73 is 1GB, the biggest is 3TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 930GB. With a hard drive capacity of only 500 gigabytes, the Lenovo M73 has one of the smaller hard drive capacity amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.

There are a number of alternative 500GB hard drive capacity personal computers currently available which you might want to consider including the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (£258.83) which is cheaper.

If this desktop computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Acer Aspire XC-705 (£379.00) (1TB), the DELL OptiPlex 7010 (£379.99) (1TB), or the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF (£359.99) (1TB).

Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

The Lenovo M73 has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (only 1.024 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago is 1GB and the biggest is 64GB.

Chart Edit

Only Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the Lenovo M73 is more than most personal computers of this spec and age. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this personal computer.

Chart Edit

Only Two USB 3.0 Ports

Most medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than a year ago have between one and seven USB 3.0 ports, including the Lenovo M73 which has two USB 3.0 ports.

Chart Edit

The smallest maximum internal memory of similar spec desktop computers that were released more than a year ago is 2GB, the biggest is 260GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 33GB. With a maximum internal memory of only 16 gigabytes, the Lenovo M73 has one of the smaller maximum internal memory amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed

The Lenovo M73 has one of the slower memory clock speeds (only 1,600 megahertz) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The memory clock speeds of personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the M73 range from 1,000MHz to 2,400MHz.

Chart Edit

Very Low System Bus Data Transfer Rate

Personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the M73 have system bus data transfer rates of between 5GT/s and 8GT/s, and the average system bus data transfer rate is 6GT/s.

3 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo M73

Released Over a Year Ago

This desktop computer was released over a year ago.

Average Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of 3.3 gigahertz, the Lenovo M73 has a pretty standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the M73.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3.3GHz processor clock speed desktop computers currently available including the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (£258.83) which is cheaper.

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 500 gigabytes, the Lenovo M73 has a fairly typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of this spec and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 500GB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available including cheaper PCs such as the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (£258.83).

If this desktop computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire XC-705 (£379.00) (1TB), the DELL OptiPlex 7010 (£379.99) (1TB), or the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF (£359.99) (1TB).
