This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on desktop computers of this type and age.
Very Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of computers of this type and age is 1,100MHz. The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of the P300 Tower of 1,250 megahertz is one of the fastest amongst medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as the P300 Tower.
Quite Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
At 1.74 gigabytes, the Lenovo P300 Tower has a quite big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other PCs of this age and spec. Comparable spec computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the P300 Tower have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 64GB.
Six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most computers of this age and spec have between one and eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the P300 Tower which has six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Lenovo Has Good Reviews for Its Personal Computers
On average Lenovo medium processor core computers have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all desktop computers produced by Lenovo.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
Across all the desktop computers of this age and type the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz. At 3.6 gigahertz, the Lenovo P300 Tower has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other computers of this age and type.
+12 More reasons for
SSD Storage Medium
The P300 Tower has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most medium processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to it. Most personal computers that were released one year ago 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 amongst all medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the P300 Tower.
Amongst comparable types of computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
If the storage speed of this computer is not fast enough for you 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).
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many desktop computers of a similar type and age to it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on similar spec computers that are a comparable age to it.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most commonly found EPEAT compliance on computers of this age and type.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on personal computers of a comparable age and type to it.
Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
The Lenovo P300 Tower has one of the faster maximum turbo frequencies (4 gigahertz) amongst medium processor core computers of this age. Across all the PCs of this spec and age the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz.
Six USB 3.0 Ports
The Lenovo P300 Tower is a six USB 3.0 port computer.
Eight Processor Threads
The Lenovo P300 Tower is a eight processor thread personal computer. Most of the other computers of this age and type only have between four and seven processor threads.
Quite Big Processor Cache
With a processor cache of 8 megabytes, the P300 Tower has a fairly big processor cache compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been on the market for more than a year. Across all the desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as the P300 Tower the processor caches range from 2MB to 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.6MB.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the P300 Tower is more than most computers of this age and spec. 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.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi DL, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to it.
4 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
At only 256 gigabytes, the P300 Tower has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the P300 Tower. The smallest total storage capacity of comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to the P300 Tower is 4GB, the biggest is 3.6TB, and the average total storage capacity is 770GB.
If you are looking for a desktop computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF (500GB), or the 800 G1 (500GB) both from HP.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This computer supports a 11.2 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
Most comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to the P300 Tower have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the P300 Tower which has two USB 2.0 ports.
At 13 kilograms, the Lenovo P300 Tower is quite heavy compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to the P300 Tower. Medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as the P300 Tower have weights of between 38g and 23kg, and the average weight is 7.6kg.
