This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than two years.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on personal computers of this type and age.
Lenovo Desktop Computers Have Good Reviews
We calculated the average ratings for all Lenovo computers and also specifically for Lenovo medium processor core personal computers and found that in both cases Lenovo had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on PCs that are a comparable age to it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on desktop computers of this age and type.
+5 More reasons for
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many PCs that are a similar age to it.
Has One Memory Slot
The M83 SFF has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar time to it. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on computers of this age and type.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on desktop computers of a similar type and age to it.
With a height of only 102 millimeters, the M83 SFF is one of the shorter personal computers of a similar type and age to the M83 SFF amongst similar spec computers of this age. The average height of medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the M83 SFF is 280mm.
7 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 SFF has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the M83 SFF. The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of similar spec personal computers that were released more than two years ago range from 850MHz to 860,000MHz.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many comparable spec computers that were launched 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.
Very Small Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of only 500 gigabytes, the M83 SFF has a fairly small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the M83 SFF. The hard drive capacity of desktop computers of a similar age and type to the M83 SFF range from 320GB to 3TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 800GB.
PCs with a bigger hard drive capacity that might also be worth considering include the Acer Aspire XC-703 (1TB and higher rated).
Only One 5.25" Bay
The Lenovo M83 SFF is a one 5.25" bay personal computer.
+4 More reasons against
Only Four Processor Threads
Most desktop computers of this age and spec have between four and seven processor threads, including the M83 SFF which has four processor threads.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
The Lenovo M83 SFF has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies (only 3.2 gigahertz) amongst desktop computers of this age. The average maximum turbo frequency of comparable spec PCs that have been around for more than two years is 3.6GHz.
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
The processor clock speeds of computers of this type and age range from 1GHz to 4.1GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz. At only 3 gigahertz, the Lenovo M83 SFF has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and type.
Personal computers with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth considering include the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 SFF (£629.99) (3.2GHz).
3 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo M83 SFF
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when this personal computer was released.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the Lenovo M83 SFF has a pretty average total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the M83 SFF.
If you are looking for a personal computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the Apple Mac Pro (512GB), or the DELL XPS 8700 (£796.52) (1TB).
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the M83 SFF has a fairly average internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and spec.
If you would prefer a personal computer with a bigger internal memory then you might want to consider the Acer Aspire XC-703 (8GB) which also has a higher rating.
