Has One Memory Slot
The M83 Mini Tower has a greater number of memory slots than most personal computers that were launched around the same time as it. This Lenovo PC has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the M83 Mini Tower.
Has One Cable Included
The Lenovo M83 Mini Tower has a greater number of included cables than most comparable spec personal computers that have been available for a similar time to it. This desktop computer has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on computers of a comparable spec and age to the M83 Mini Tower.
At only 102 millimeters, the M83 Mini Tower is fairly short compared to most of the other PCs of a similar type and age to the M83 Mini Tower. The average height of medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago is 280mm.
8 Reasons Against
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,100 megahertz, the M83 Mini Tower has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies amongst personal computers of this age. Across all the computers of this type and age the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 850MHz to 860,000MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 3,200MHz.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is Hybrid-HDD, which is typical of many personal computers of a comparable age and spec to 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.
Very Small Internal Memory
Computers that have been available for around the same time as the M83 Mini Tower have internal memory of between 2GB and 64GB, and the average internal memory is 7.5GB. At only 4 gigabytes, the M83 Mini Tower has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other PCs that are a comparable age to the M83 Mini Tower.
If this Lenovo computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the DELL OptiPlex 9020[plb_2555150_price] (8GB).
Quite Slow Hard Drive Speed
At only 5,400 revolutions per minute, the M83 Mini Tower has a very slow hard drive speed compared to most of the other desktop computers of this type and age. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago the hard drive speeds range from 5,400 RPM to 7,200 RPM, and the average hard drive speed is 7,100 RPM.
+5 More reasons against
Only One 5.25" Bay
Most personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the M83 Mini Tower have between one and two 5.25" bays, including the Lenovo M83 Mini Tower which has one 5.25" bay.
Only One PCI Express X1 (Gen 2.x) Slot
The Lenovo M83 Mini Tower is a one PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slot personal computer. Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the M83 Mini Tower have between one and two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots.
Only Four Processor Threads
Most medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the M83 Mini Tower have between four and seven processor threads, including the M83 Mini Tower which has four processor threads.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the M83 Mini Tower the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.3GHz to 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz. The Lenovo M83 Mini Tower has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies (only 3.3 gigahertz) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
4 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo M83 Mini Tower
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when this medium processor core desktop computer was released.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.1 gigahertz, the M83 Mini Tower has a pretty typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that were released more than two years ago.
