At 1,200 megahertz, the M93p Tower has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the M93p Tower.
Six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most PCs of this age and spec have between one and eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the M93p Tower which has six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This personal computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many desktop computers that have been around for more than two years.
Medium processor core personal computers produced by Lenovo have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all desktop computers (not just medium processor core personal computers) and found that Lenovo also has good ratings across its entire range.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.6 gigahertz, the Lenovo M93p Tower has one of the faster processor clock speeds amongst comparable spec PCs of this age. The slowest processor clock speed of medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than two years is 1GHz, the fastest is 4.1GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.
If you are looking for a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the HP Z440 (£1,402.57) (3.7GHz).
+15 More reasons for
SSD Storage Medium
The M93p Tower has a faster storage speed than most desktop computers of this spec and age. This Lenovo PC has an SSD storage medium, whereas most personal computers of this age and type 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 personal computers that were released more than two years ago.
Across similar types of desktop computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
We compared all the other SSD computers to this personal computer and we think because of it's better review score, the DELL Precision T1700 SFF is also worth considering.

Eight Processor Threads
The M93p Tower has more processor threads than most of the similar spec computers that were launched more than two years ago. Most of the comparable spec computers that are a similar age to the M93p Tower only have between four and seven processor threads, however this computer has eight processor threads.
Quite Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
The Lenovo M93p Tower has a fairly big solid-state drive capacity (256 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the M93p Tower. The average solid-state drive capacity of medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago is 190GB.
Three 3.5" Bays
Most medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the M93p Tower have between one and eight 3.5" bays, including the M93p Tower which has three 3.5" bays.
Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory
The M93p Tower has a fairly big maximum internal memory (32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the M93p Tower. The maximum internal memory of similar spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the M93p Tower range from 2GB to 260GB.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the M93p Tower is more than most similar spec desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to it. This PC has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on similar spec PCs that have been on the market for more than two years.
5 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The smallest total storage capacity of personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the M93p Tower is 32GB and the biggest is 3TB. The M93p Tower has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth looking at include the Acer Aspire XC-603 (£206.99) (500GB).
Quite Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Personal computers of this age and spec have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 2GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 1.4GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 1.024 gigabytes, the M93p Tower has one of the smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memories amongst personal computers of this age.
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
The Lenovo M93p Tower is a two USB 2.0 port PC. Most of the other computers of this spec and age have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.
Only One PCI Express X1 Slot
The M93p Tower is a one PCI Express x1 slot computer.
+2 More reasons against
With a weight of 11.2 kilograms, the M93p Tower is fairly heavy compared to most of the other computers of a comparable age and spec to the M93p Tower. Across all the personal computers that are a comparable age to the M93p Tower the weights range from 250g to 24kg, and the average weight is 8.2kg.
2 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo M93p Tower
Released Over Two Years Ago
This medium processor core desktop computer has been on the market for over two years.
Average Internal Memory
The Lenovo M93p Tower has a fairly average internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other computers of this spec and age.
If you want a desktop computer with a bigger internal memory then you might want to consider the Apple Mac Pro (12GB), or the DELL XPS 8700 (12GB).
