+15 More reasons for
SSD Storage Medium
The P300 Tower has a faster storage speed than most medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as it. This computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most PCs of this age and spec 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.
This computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed across all PCs of a comparable age and type to the P300 Tower.
Across similar types of computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
There are a number of alternative SSD computers currently available that you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the DELL Precision T1700 SFF.
The P300 Tower is a four DisplayPort desktop computer. Most of the other desktop computers that have been available for a similar time to the P300 Tower only have between one and three DisplayPorts.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology

Gold EPEAT Compliance
This PC has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many PCs of a comparable age and spec to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many personal computers of this spec and age.
Six USB 3.0 Ports
The Lenovo P300 Tower is a six USB 3.0 port personal computer.
Fairly Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
With a solid-state drive capacity of 256 gigabytes, the Lenovo P300 Tower has a quite big solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of this spec and age. Across all the comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to the P300 Tower the solid-state drive capacities range from 8GB to 520GB.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
The P300 Tower has a fairly big processor cache (8 megabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the P300 Tower. The smallest processor cache of similar spec computers that have been around for around the same time as the P300 Tower is 0.51MB and the biggest is 10MB.
Fairly Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the P300 Tower is 510MB and the biggest is 6.2GB. At 4,096 megabytes, the P300 Tower has a quite big discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the P300 Tower.
Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
With a maximum turbo frequency of 3.9 gigahertz, the P300 Tower has a fairly fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the P300 Tower. Across all the personal computers of a similar type and age to the P300 Tower the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.3GHz to 4.4GHz.
Supports One Case Placement

4 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
Computers that were launched more than two years ago have total storage capacity of between 32GB and 3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 710GB. At only 256 gigabytes, the P300 Tower has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers of a similar spec and age to the P300 Tower.
Desktop computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth considering include the DELL OptiPlex 3020 (500GB).
Only One Graphics Adapter DVI Port
The Lenovo P300 Tower is a one graphics adapter DVI port personal computer. Most of the other computers of this spec and age have one graphics adapter DVI port.
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
Most computers of this age and type have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the P300 Tower which has two USB 2.0 ports.
With a weight of 13 kilograms, the Lenovo P300 Tower is one of the heavier personal computers of a similar type and age to the P300 Tower amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The weights of computers that are a similar age to the P300 Tower range from 250g to 24kg.

3 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo P300 Tower
Released Over Two Years Ago
This computer has been on the market for over two years.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.5 gigahertz, the Lenovo P300 Tower has a relatively typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other computers that were released around the same time as the P300 Tower.
If you would prefer a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (£629.97) (3.6GHz), or the Asus M32AD (£570.47) (3.6GHz).
Average Internal Memory
The Lenovo P300 Tower has a relatively typical internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out more than two years ago.
If this medium processor core desktop computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the Zoostorm Intel Core i7-4790 Mini Tower (12GB) which also has a higher rating.
