This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on similar spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This desktop computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many similar spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as it.
Medium processor core personal computers produced by Lenovo have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all computers (not just medium processor core personal computers) and found that Lenovo also has good reviews across its entire range.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on desktop computers of this age and spec.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on personal computers of a comparable age and spec to it.
+4 More reasons for
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This desktop computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most frequently found EPEAT compliance on computers of this spec and age.
Has One Memory Slot
The M83 SFF has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than two years. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on personal computers of this spec and age.
With a height of only 102 millimeters, the M83 SFF is quite short compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to the M83 SFF. The heights of medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago range from 19mm to 560mm, and the average height is 280mm.
3 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many desktop computers of a comparable age and type 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 Hard Drive Capacity
The smallest hard drive capacity of medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the M83 SFF is 320GB, the biggest is 3TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 800GB. At only 500 gigabytes, the M83 SFF has a fairly small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other PCs that were released around the same time as the M83 SFF.
Personal computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might be worth looking at include the Acer Aspire XC-703 (1TB) which also has a higher rating.
Only One 5.25" Bay
The M83 SFF is a one 5.25" bay PC. Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the M83 SFF have between one and two 5.25" bays.
4 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo M83 SFF
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when Lenovo released the M83 SFF.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.4 gigahertz, the Lenovo M83 SFF has a relatively typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers that were released around the same time as the M83 SFF.
If this computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to consider the HP ProDesk 600 SFF (£344.95) (3.5GHz).
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the M83 SFF has a pretty standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and spec.
If this computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the Apple Mac Pro (512GB), or the DELL XPS 8700 (1TB).
+2 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the M83 SFF has a fairly average internal memory compared to most of the other PCs of a comparable age and type to the M83 SFF.
If you want a personal computer with a bigger internal memory then you might also want to look at the Acer Aspire XC-703 (8GB) which is also higher rated.
