This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on PCs of this spec and age.
Fairly Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
With a max internal memory supported processor of 32 gigabytes, the Lenovo Q190 has one of the bigger max internal memory supported processors amongst personal computers of this age. Across all the desktop computers of a similar spec and age to the Q190 the max internal memory supported processors range from 4GB to 64GB.
Lenovo Has Good Reviews for Its PCs
We checked 406 owner and expert 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 few processor core PCs range.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L2|L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many computers that are a comparable age to it.
Supports Six Compatible Memory Cards
The number of compatible memory card supported by the Lenovo Q190 is more than most computers of this age and spec. This Lenovo PC supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most commonly supported compatible memory card supported by computers of a similar age and type to the Q190. The compatible memory cards "Memory Stick (MS)", "MMC", "MS PRO", "SDHC" and "SDXC" are also supported by this personal computer.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Lenovo Q190 is more than most few processor core PCs that were launched more than a year ago. The most frequently found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this desktop computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this personal computer.
+2 More reasons for
The shallowest similar spec PC that was released more than a year ago is 22mm deep, the deepest is 1,100mm, and the average depth is 280mm. When compared to other PCs of this age and spec, the Lenovo Q190's depth of only 22 millimeters is one of the shallowest.
7 Reasons Against
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of only 1.6 gigahertz, the Lenovo Q190 has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and type. Across all the similar spec personal computers that were launched around the same time as the Q190 the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 3.9GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.8GHz.
If this desktop computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to consider the Asus UN62 (£208.32) (1.9GHz) which is also cheaper.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many personal computers of a comparable age and spec to it. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
There are a number of other HDD desktop computers currently available which you might want to consider including the Asus VM42 (£160.00), or the Lenovo H30 (£139.00) which is cheaper; or the DELL OptiPlex 7020 (£214.80) which has better reviews.
Desktop computers with a faster storage speed that might also be worth considering include the Asus CN60 (£138.28) (SSD and higher rated) or the Acer Revo One RL85 (£175.11) (SSD and cheaper).
Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed
The average memory clock speed of computers of this spec and age is 1,600MHz. When compared to other comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to the Q190 that we have checked, the Lenovo Q190's memory clock speed of only 1,333 megahertz is one of the slowest.
Quite Small L3 Cache
Across all the computers of this spec and age the L3 caches range from 2MB to 4MB, and the average L3 cache is 3.2MB. The Lenovo Q190 has a very small L3 cache (only 2 megabytes) compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Q190.
+4 More reasons against
Very Slow Hard Drive Speed
With a hard drive speed of only 5,400 revolutions per minute, the Lenovo Q190 has a quite slow hard drive speed compared to most of the other PCs of this age and spec. The slowest hard drive speed of similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Q190 is 5,400 RPM and the fastest is 7,200 RPM.
Quite Small Processor Cache
The Lenovo Q190 has a fairly small processor cache (only 2 megabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the Q190. Few processor core PCs that were released one year ago have processor caches of between 1MB and 4MB.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
The maximum internal memory of few processor core PCs that came out more than a year ago range from 4GB to 32GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 16GB. The Lenovo Q190 has a fairly small maximum internal memory (only 8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Q190.
4 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo Q190
Released Over a Year Ago
This personal computer was released over a year ago.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the Lenovo Q190 has a pretty typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers of this type and age.
If you are looking for a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to look at the Lenovo H30 (£139.00) (1TB), or the Acer Revo One RL85 (£169.34) (2TB) which is also cheaper.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the Lenovo Q190 has a pretty average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other PCs of this age and spec.
If this few processor core personal computer hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Lenovo H30 (£139.00) (1TB), or the Acer Revo One RL85 (£169.34) (2TB) which is also cheaper.
