5 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo P900

Released Over Two Years Ago

This Lenovo desktop computer was released over two years ago.

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 3.2 gigahertz, the Lenovo P900 has a relatively typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been available for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Average Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 16 gigabytes, the Lenovo P900 has a pretty typical internal memory compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar age and type to the P900.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is SSD, which is typical of many similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it. 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.

Chart Edit

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 512 gigabytes, the Lenovo P900 has a pretty average total storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been around for more than two years.

If you would prefer a personal computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the Lenovo P900[plb_2556129_price] (1TB), or the HP Z440[plb_2665760_price] (1TB).
