10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many comparable spec computers that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
Six USB 3.0 Ports
Most medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the M93p SFF have between one and eight USB 3.0 ports, including the M93p SFF which has six USB 3.0 ports.
Has One Memory Slot
The M93p SFF has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core computers that have been around for more than a year. 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 comparable time to the M93p SFF.
The M93p SFF is one of the narrower computers of this type and age (only 102 millimeters) amongst computers of this age. Personal computers of a similar age and spec to the M93p SFF have widths of between 33mm and 510mm, and the average width is 190mm.
9 Reasons Against
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The M93p SFF has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (only 1,100 megahertz) amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of desktop computers of a similar age and type to the M93p SFF is 1,100MHz.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many computers of this spec and age. 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.
If the storage speed of this Lenovo computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the Fujitsu W530 (£127.99) (SSD).
Very Small Internal Memory
At only 4 gigabytes, the M93p SFF has a quite small internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to the M93p SFF. The smallest internal memory of personal computers of this age and type is 2GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average internal memory is 7.8GB.
If this medium processor core computer internal memory is too small for you then you might want to consider the DELL 270 (£349.99) (6GB).
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to it.
+6 More reasons against
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of only 500 gigabytes, the M93p SFF has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age. The smallest total storage capacity of PCs of a similar age and spec to the M93p SFF is 4GB and the biggest is 3.6TB.
PCs with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth considering include the 800 G2 (£614.91) (1TB), or the 490 G3 MT (1TB) both from HP.
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
The Lenovo M93p SFF is a two USB 2.0 port desktop computer. Most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the M93p SFF have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.
Only One 3.5" Bay
Most desktop computers of this type and age have between one and seven 3.5" bays, including the M93p SFF which has one 3.5" bay.
Only One PCI Express X1 (Gen 2.x) Slot
The M93p SFF is a one PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slot computer. Most of the other computers that have been available for a similar time to the M93p SFF have between one and two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
At only 3.2 gigahertz, the M93p SFF has a fairly slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other computers of a comparable type and age to the M93p SFF. The maximum turbo frequencies of PCs of this age and type range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz.
3 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo M93p SFF
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when Lenovo released the M93p SFF.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3 gigahertz, the Lenovo M93p SFF has a relatively standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as the M93p SFF.
If you want a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the Asus M52AD (3.2GHz) which also has a higher rating.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the M93p SFF has a relatively standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the M93p SFF.
If you would prefer a bigger hard drive capacity then you might also want to look at the 800 G2 (£1,017.40) (1TB), or the 400 G2.5 SFF (£359.99) (1TB) both from HP.
