This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as it.
Six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The M93p SFF is a six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port computer.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This desktop computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on PCs of this age and type.
Lenovo medium processor core computers have good reviews on average and across all PCs Lenovo is one of the better rated manufacturers.
SSD Storage Medium
The Lenovo M93p SFF has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most comparable spec computers that were released around the same time as it. Most PCs that are a similar age to it 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 across all medium processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to the M93p SFF.
The worst storage speed across similar types of computer is HDD.
We compared all the other SSD PCs to this computer and we think the Zotac ZBOX CA320 nano which has better reviews is also worth considering.
If the storage speed of this PC is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the Apple Mac Pro (Flash).
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on personal computers of a comparable type and age to it.
+7 More reasons for

9 Reasons Against
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
The smallest total storage capacity of medium processor core computers that have been on the market for more than two years is 32GB, the biggest is 2.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 720GB. At only 128 gigabytes, the Lenovo M93p SFF has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other PCs that came out around the same time as the M93p SFF.
If this Lenovo PC total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (256GB).
Quite Small Internal Memory
The M93p SFF has one of the smallest internal memory (only 4 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The average internal memory of similar spec computers that were released around the same time as the M93p SFF is 8GB, and the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB.
If this computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (8GB).
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,150 megahertz, the M93p SFF has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of computers of this age and spec range from 850MHz to 1,300MHz.
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
Most PCs that were launched around the same time as the M93p SFF have between two and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the M93p SFF which has two USB 2.0 ports.
+6 More reasons against
Only One 3.5" Bay
The Lenovo M93p SFF is a one 3.5" bay personal computer.
Only One 5.25" Bay
The M93p SFF is a one 5.25" bay personal computer.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of similar spec computers that have been available for a comparable time to the M93p SFF is 1.5GB, and the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1GB to 1.8GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 1.024 gigabytes, the Lenovo M93p SFF has a fairly small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to the M93p SFF.
Only Four Processor Threads
The Lenovo M93p SFF is a four processor thread PC. Most of the other desktop computers of a similar age and type to the M93p SFF have between four and seven processor threads.
The M93p SFF is fairly heavy (11.2 kilograms) compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the M93p SFF. The weights of desktop computers that are a similar age to the M93p SFF range from 250g to 24kg, and the average weight is 8kg.
