11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many PCs of a similar age and type to it.
Lenovo Has Good Reviews for Its Desktop Computers
Lenovo medium processor core computers have good reviews on average and across all desktop computers Lenovo is one of the better rated manufacturers.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This desktop computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that are a similar age to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many similar spec personal computers that were launched around the same time as it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on desktop computers of this type and age.
+3 More reasons for
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Lenovo M83 SFF is more than most computers of this type and age. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on medium processor core computers that have been available for a similar time to the M83 SFF.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on PCs of this age and type.
5 Reasons Against
Quite 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 PCs of this age and type. The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of medium processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to the M83 SFF range from 850MHz to 1,300MHz.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for more than two years. 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.
Desktop computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth considering include the Zotac ZBOX CA320 nano (SSD) which is also higher rated.
Very Small Internal Memory
At only 4 gigabytes, the M83 SFF has a quite small internal memory compared to most of the other computers of a similar spec and age to the M83 SFF. Personal computers that are a comparable age to the M83 SFF have internal memory of between 2GB and 64GB.
If this Lenovo desktop computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Fujitsu CELSIUS W530 (8GB).
Only Four Processor Threads
Most PCs of this spec and age have between four and seven processor threads, including the Lenovo M83 SFF which has four processor threads.
+2 More reasons against
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
The slowest maximum turbo frequency of personal computers of a similar age and type to the M83 SFF is 1.3GHz and the fastest is 4.4GHz. The Lenovo M83 SFF has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies (only 3.2 gigahertz) amongst similar spec personal computers of this age.
4 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo M83 SFF
Released Over Two Years Ago
This desktop computer has been on the market for over two years.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The M83 SFF has a fairly standard processor clock speed (3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the M83 SFF.
If you want a computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to consider the Fujitsu Celsius W530 (3.3GHz and higher rated).
Average Total Storage Capacity
The M83 SFF has a relatively standard total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other computers that are a similar age to the M83 SFF.
If you want a computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the Apple Mac Pro (£2,289.06) (512GB), or the Fujitsu CELSIUS W530 (1TB).
+2 Other reasons
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the Lenovo M83 SFF has a relatively average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other PCs of a similar type and age to the M83 SFF.
Desktop computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might be worth looking at include the Fujitsu CELSIUS W530 (1TB).
