This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many PCs of a comparable age and spec to 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 desktop computers that were released around the same time as it.
We calculated the average reviews for all Lenovo personal computers and also specifically for Lenovo medium processor core personal computers and found that in both cases Lenovo had good reviews.
SSD Storage Medium
The M83 Tiny has a faster storage speed than most similar spec computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it. This desktop computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.
An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage speed amongst all computers of this spec and age.
Amongst similar types of personal computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
Other SSD computers currently available which you might also want to look at include the Fujitsu Esprimo P420 which has better reviews.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
+8 More reasons for
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on PCs of a similar age and spec to it.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as it.
DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
The M83 Tiny has a newer internal memory type than most medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as it. This computer has a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type. Across all similar spec desktop computers that have been around for more than two years the worst internal memory type is DDR3-SDRAM and the best is DDR4-SDRAM.
Has One Cable Included
The number of included cables found on the Lenovo M83 Tiny is more than most desktop computers of this age and type. This desktop computer has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on PCs of this age and spec.
The average depth of computers of a similar type and age to the M83 Tiny is 360mm. At only 182 millimeters, the M83 Tiny is fairly shallow compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the M83 Tiny.
At only 1.3 kilograms, the M83 Tiny is fairly light compared to most of the other computers of a similar age and spec to the M83 Tiny. The lightest medium processor core desktop computer that has been around for a comparable time to the M83 Tiny is 250g heavy and the heaviest is 24kg.
Desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the M83 Tiny have heights of between 19mm and 560mm. At only 34.5 millimeters, the M83 Tiny is fairly short compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and type.
6 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
At only 256 gigabytes, the Lenovo M83 Tiny has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other PCs that were released more than two years ago. The average total storage capacity of medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago is 710GB, and the total storage capacity range from 32GB to 3TB.
If this personal computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 (£1,200.00) (500GB).
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
The processor clock speeds of medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than two years range from 1GHz to 4.1GHz. At only 2 gigahertz, the Lenovo M83 Tiny has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to the M83 Tiny.
If this medium processor core desktop computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 (£1,200.00) (2.8GHz).
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
Most medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the M83 Tiny have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the M83 Tiny which has two USB 2.0 ports.
Only One Storage Drive
The M83 Tiny is a one storage drive computer.
+3 More reasons against
Only Four Processor Threads
Most computers that have been available for around the same time as the M83 Tiny have between four and seven processor threads, including the M83 Tiny which has four processor threads.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
At only 3 gigahertz, the M83 Tiny has a fairly slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar spec and age to the M83 Tiny. Medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago have maximum turbo frequencies of between 1.3GHz and 4.4GHz.
2 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo M83 Tiny
Released Over Two Years Ago
Lenovo released the M83 Tiny over two years ago.
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the M83 Tiny has a fairly typical internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the M83 Tiny.
If you are looking for a desktop computer with a bigger internal memory then you might want to consider the Acer Aspire XC-703 (8GB and higher rated).
