This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as it.
Six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The M93p Tower is a six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port desktop computer. Most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for more than a year have between one and eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Lenovo has good average reviews for its medium processor core computers as well as across its entire PC range compared to other manufacturers.
SSD Storage Medium
The M93p Tower has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most personal computers that were launched around the same time as it. 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 actually the best storage speed across all medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the M93p Tower.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across comparable types of personal computer.
If the storage speed of this desktop computer is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the Zotac ZBOX PI320 (Flash), or the Asus CHROMEBIT (£99.97) (Flash) which also has a higher rating.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many computers that have been around for more than a year.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This PC has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many comparable spec PCs that have been available for more than a year.
+8 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on desktop computers of this spec and age.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many PCs of this spec and age.
Two PCI Express X16 Slots
The M93p Tower is a two PCI Express x16 slot desktop computer. Most of the other medium processor core computers that were launched more than a year ago only have one PCI Express x16 slot.
Six USB 3.0 Ports
Most desktop computers that have been available for more than a year have between one and eight USB 3.0 ports, including the Lenovo M93p Tower which has six USB 3.0 ports.
Fairly Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
Across all the computers of this age and type the solid-state drive capacities range from 8GB to 1TB, and the average solid-state drive capacity is 210GB. At 256 gigabytes, the Lenovo M93p Tower has a fairly big solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the M93p Tower.
Three 3.5" Bays
The M93p Tower is a three 3.5" bay computer.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the M93p Tower is more than most medium processor core computers that were released more than a year ago. This Lenovo personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on PCs of a comparable age and spec to the M93p Tower.
7 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The average total storage capacity of PCs of this spec and age is 770GB, and the total storage capacity range from 4GB to 3.6TB. The M93p Tower has a quite small total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers that were released around the same time as the M93p Tower.
If this desktop computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Lenovo M93p (£563.10) (500GB) which is also higher rated.
Only 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 medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as it.
Only One PS/2 Port
Most personal computers of a comparable type and age to the M93p Tower have one PS/2 port, including the Lenovo M93p Tower which has one PS/2 port.
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
Most desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the M93p Tower have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the Lenovo M93p Tower which has two USB 2.0 ports.
+4 More reasons against
Quite Small Processor Cache
At only 6 megabytes, the Lenovo M93p Tower has a fairly small processor cache compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that came out around the same time as the M93p Tower. The smallest processor cache of medium processor core computers that were released one year ago is 2MB and the biggest is 10MB.
Only Four Processor Threads
The M93p Tower is a four processor thread personal computer. Most of the other computers that have been available for a similar time to the M93p Tower have between four and seven processor threads.
At 11.2 kilograms, the Lenovo M93p Tower is quite heavy compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to the M93p Tower. The lightest medium processor core computer that has been available for around the same time as the M93p Tower is 38g heavy, the heaviest is 23kg, and the average weight is 7.6kg.
3 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo M93p Tower
Released Over a Year Ago
This computer was released over a year ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.3 gigahertz, the M93p Tower has a relatively average processor clock speed compared to most of the other computers of a similar spec and age to the M93p Tower.
If you would prefer a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the Fujitsu W550 (£891.25) (3.4GHz).
Average Internal Memory
The Lenovo M93p Tower has a relatively average internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other PCs of a similar type and age to the M93p Tower.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 8GB memory desktop computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the Acer Aspire XC-703.
If this Lenovo personal computer internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Asus K31AD (£722.38) (12GB).
