This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to it.
Very Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
Across all the PCs that were released around the same time as the P300 Tower the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 700MHz to 1,300MHz. When compared to other medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the P300 Tower that we have assessed, the P300 Tower's on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,200 megahertz is one of the fastest.
Six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The P300 Tower is a six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port personal computer.
We checked 406 expert and user reviews for Lenovo computers and found that on average Lenovo has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Lenovo has good reviews specifically within its medium processor core computers range.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
Similar spec computers that have been available for a comparable time to the P300 Tower have processor clock speeds of between 1.3GHz and 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz. The P300 Tower has one of the faster processor clock speeds (3.6 gigahertz) amongst similar spec computers of this age.
Quite Big Internal Memory
When compared to other medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as the P300 Tower, the internal memory of the P300 Tower of 16 gigabytes is one of the biggest. Similar spec computers that are a comparable age to the P300 Tower have internal memory of between 2GB and 64GB, and the average internal memory is 7.8GB.
+15 More reasons for
SSD Storage Medium
The P300 Tower has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most medium processor core computers that were released more than a year ago. 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.
This computer's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed amongst all medium processor core computers that have been available for more than a year.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across similar types of computer.
If you would prefer a computer with a faster storage speed then you might also want to look at the Zotac ZBOX PI320 (Flash and higher rated), or the Asus CHROMEBIT (£99.97) (Flash and higher rated).
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 desktop computers of a similar age and type to it.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This personal computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most commonly found EPEAT compliance on medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on computers that were launched around the same time as it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on PCs of a similar type and age to it.
Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
Across all the medium processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to the P300 Tower the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz. At 4 gigahertz, the P300 Tower has a quite fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the P300 Tower.
The P300 Tower is a two DisplayPort desktop computer.
Six USB 3.0 Ports
Most computers of this type and age have between one and eight USB 3.0 ports, including the P300 Tower which has six USB 3.0 ports.
Two 5.25" Bays
The P300 Tower is a two 5.25" bay personal computer. Most of the other comparable spec computers that have been on the market for more than a year have between one and two 5.25" bays.
Quite Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
The Lenovo P300 Tower has one of the bigger solid-state drive capacities (256 gigabytes) amongst computers of this age. Across all the medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the P300 Tower the solid-state drive capacities range from 8GB to 1TB, and the average solid-state drive capacity is 210GB.
Eight Processor Threads
The P300 Tower has more processor threads than most of the medium processor core computers that have been on the market for more than a year. This desktop computer is a eight processor thread personal computer compared to most of the personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the P300 Tower which only have between four and seven processor threads.
Quite Big Processor Cache
At 8 megabytes, the P300 Tower has a quite big processor cache compared to most of the other PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the P300 Tower. The average processor cache of personal computers that were released one year ago is 6.6MB.
Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory
At 32 gigabytes, the P300 Tower has a quite big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were launched more than a year ago. Across all the medium processor core computers that were released one year ago the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 520GB.
Has One Memory Slot
The P300 Tower has a greater number of memory slots than most PCs of a comparable age and type to it. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the P300 Tower.
6 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The average total storage capacity of desktop computers that were released more than a year ago is 770GB. At only 256 gigabytes, the P300 Tower has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers of this age and spec.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This personal computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on PCs of a comparable type and age to it.
