Fairly Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
The smallest max internal memory supported processor of PCs of this spec and age is 4GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 27GB. With a max internal memory supported processor of 32 gigabytes, the Lenovo S500 has a quite big max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the S500.
Lenovo PCs Have Good Reviews
Lenovo has good average ratings for its few processor core computers as well as across its entire desktop computer range compared to other brands.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
At 3.6 gigahertz, the Lenovo S500 has a fairly fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other computers of a similar age and type to the S500. Few processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the S500 have processor clock speeds of between 0.8GHz and 3.9GHz.
If this Lenovo PC processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the Acer Aspire XC-710 (£324.99) (3.7GHz).
Quite Big Hard Drive Capacity
The Lenovo S500 has a quite big hard drive capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the S500. The hard drive capacity of few processor core computers that were released around the same time as the S500 range from 320GB to 2TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 650GB.
If you would prefer a computer with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might also want to consider the Acer Revo One RL85 (£299.99) (2TB) which is also higher rated.
Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity
The Lenovo S500 has a fairly big total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the S500. Across all the few processor core computers that were released one year ago the total storage capacity range from 8GB to 3TB.
If you would prefer a personal computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the Acer Revo One RL85 (£299.99) (2TB and higher rated).
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on few processor core computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many desktop computers of this age and type.
Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory
With a maximum internal memory of 32,768 megabytes, the Lenovo S500 has a fairly big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other few processor core computers that came out more than a year ago. The smallest maximum internal memory of few processor core computers that were released around the same time as the S500 is 4GB, the biggest is 33GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 26GB.
Four Processor Threads
The Lenovo S500 is a four processor thread personal computer.
Supports One Case Placement
The number of placements supported by the Lenovo S500 is more than most comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to it. This desktop computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most commonly supported case placement supported by personal computers of this age and spec.
5.1 Audio Output Channel
