This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many personal computers of a comparable age and spec to it.
Very Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
When compared to other PCs of a comparable type and age to the P300 Tower that we have checked the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of, the Lenovo P300 Tower's on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,250 megahertz is one of the fastest. Medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 640MHz and 1,300MHz.
Six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most comparable spec PCs that have been available for around the same time as the P300 Tower have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the Lenovo P300 Tower which has six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Quite Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Personal computers of this age and spec have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 4.3GB. The P300 Tower has one of the bigger maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (1.74 gigabytes) amongst similar spec PCs of this age.
We calculated the average reviews for all Lenovo desktop computers and also specifically for Lenovo medium processor core personal computers and found that in both cases Lenovo had good reviews.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
At 3.6 gigahertz, the Lenovo P300 Tower has a fairly fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that came out more than a year ago. The average processor clock speed of similar spec computers that were released one year ago is 3.1GHz, and the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz.
If this personal computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the Apple ME253 (3.7GHz).
+15 More reasons for
SSD Storage Medium
The P300 Tower has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most desktop computers of this spec and age. Most similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to it 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 actually the best storage speed across all medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the P300 Tower.
The worst storage speed across similar types of PC is HDD.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the Lenovo P300 Tower has a quite big internal memory compared to most of the other PCs that were released more than a year ago. The internal memory of comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to the P300 Tower range from 2GB to 64GB.
If you would prefer a bigger internal memory then you might want to consider the Acer Aspire XC-705 (£449.00) (10GB), or the HP 810-477na (£939.99) (12GB).
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on PCs of this spec and age.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This PC has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many similar spec desktop computers that were launched more than a year ago.
Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
At 4 gigahertz, the P300 Tower has a fairly fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other personal computers that have been available for more than a year. The slowest maximum turbo frequency of medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the P300 Tower is 1.8GHz, the fastest is 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many computers of this spec and age.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers of this age and type.
Most medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than a year have between one and three DisplayPorts, including the Lenovo P300 Tower which has two DisplayPorts.
Six USB 3.0 Ports
The P300 Tower is a six USB 3.0 port computer. Most of the other similar spec PCs that were launched around the same time as the P300 Tower have between one and seven USB 3.0 ports.
Fairly Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
The smallest solid-state drive capacity of medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the P300 Tower is 8GB and the biggest is 1TB. At 256 gigabytes, the P300 Tower has a quite big solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the P300 Tower.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
Comparable spec personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the P300 Tower have processor caches of between 2MB and 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.6MB. The P300 Tower has one of the bigger processor caches (8 megabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Supports One Case Placement
The P300 Tower has a greater number of placements than most medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago. This Lenovo PC supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by PCs of this age and type.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the P300 Tower is more than most medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to it. This personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on PCs of this spec and age.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi DL, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to it.
5 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The smallest total storage capacity of personal computers of this age and type is 4GB and the biggest is 3.6TB. With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the Lenovo P300 Tower has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been available for a comparable time to the P300 Tower.
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
The P300 Tower is a two USB 2.0 port personal computer. Most of the other computers of a similar age and type to the P300 Tower have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.
Only One PCI Express X1 (Gen 2.x) Slot
The P300 Tower is a one PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slot personal computer.
Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed
The P300 Tower has one of the slower memory clock speeds (only 1,600 megahertz) amongst desktop computers of this age. The memory clock speeds of computers that have been on the market for more than a year range from 1,000MHz to 2,400MHz, and the average memory clock speed is 1,800MHz.
+2 More reasons against
Computers that have been around for more than a year have weights of between 38g and 100kg. At 13 kilograms, the Lenovo P300 Tower is quite heavy compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the P300 Tower.
