This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many desktop computers of a comparable type and age to it.
Lenovo Has Good Computer Reviews
Lenovo few processor core PCs have good ratings on average and across all PCs Lenovo is one of the better rated manufacturers.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
Across all the computers of a similar spec and age to the S500 the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 3.9GHz. With a processor clock speed of 3.6 gigahertz, the Lenovo S500 has one of the faster processor clock speeds amongst computers of this age.
If this Lenovo desktop computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to look at the Fujitsu D556 (£293.98) (3.7GHz), or the Lenovo S500 SFF (£299.97) (3.7GHz).
Quite Big Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the Lenovo S500 has one of the bigger hard drive capacity amongst computers of this age. Across all the few processor core PCs that are a similar age to the S500 the hard drive capacity range from 250GB to 2TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 630GB.
If this desktop computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Acer Revo One RL85 (£299.99) (2TB) which also has a higher rating.
Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity
When compared to other PCs of a similar age and spec to the S500 that we have checked the total storage capacity of, the Lenovo S500's total storage capacity of 1,000 gigabyte is one of the biggest. Desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the S500 have total storage capacity of between 8GB and 3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 550GB.
If you are looking for a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to look at the Acer Revo One RL85 (£299.99) (2TB) which also has a higher rating.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on computers of a similar age and type to it.
+4 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers of this type and age.
5.1 Audio Output Channel
This computer has a 5.1 audio output channel, which is typical of many few processor core PCs that are a comparable age to it.
The widths of desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the S500 range from 29mm to 660mm. With a width of only 108 millimeters, the Lenovo S500 is one of the narrower few processor core PCs that were released around the same time as the S500 amongst few processor core PCs of this age.
5 Reasons Against
Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
With a discrete graphics adapter memory of only 2 gigabytes, the Lenovo S500 has one of the smaller discrete graphics adapter memory capacities amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age. The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to the S500 is 1GB and the biggest is 2.1TB.
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The Lenovo S500 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port personal computer.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many computers of this type and age. 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.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
The Lenovo S500 is a two USB 3.0 port desktop computer. Most of the other few processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the S500 have between one and five USB 3.0 ports.
+2 More reasons against
Only One PCI Express X1 Slot
Most computers of a comparable spec and age to the S500 have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots, including the Lenovo S500 which has one PCI Express x1 slot.
2 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo S500
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when Lenovo released the S500.
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the Lenovo S500 has a relatively standard internal memory compared to most of the other PCs that have been on the market for more than a year.
If you want a PC with a bigger internal memory then you might want to consider the HP Pavilion Mini 300 (8GB) which is also higher rated.
