12 Reasons For
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on few processor core PCs that have been available for a similar time to it.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
The ThinkCentre E73 has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter base frequencies (350 megahertz) amongst personal computers of this age. Similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ThinkCentre E73 have on-board graphics adapter base frequencies of between 100MHz and 740MHz.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of computers that have been available for around the same time as the ThinkCentre E73 range from 750MHz to 1,200MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,150 megahertz, the ThinkCentre E73 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other computers that are a comparable age to the ThinkCentre E73.
Fairly Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
Across all the personal computers of a comparable type and age to the ThinkCentre E73 the max internal memory supported processors range from 4GB to 64GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 27GB. At 32 gigabytes, the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 has a quite big max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that were released one year ago.
Lenovo Has Good Desktop Computer Reviews
We checked 406 expert and owner reviews for Lenovo PCs and found that on average Lenovo has good ratings compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Lenovo has good ratings specifically for its few processor core PCs.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
Across all the PCs that have been available for around the same time as the ThinkCentre E73 the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 3.9GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.8GHz. The ThinkCentre E73 has one of the faster processor clock speeds (3.5 gigahertz) amongst few processor core PCs of this age.
If you are looking for a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the ProDesk 400 SFF (3.6GHz), or the Pavilion 500 (£337.58) (3.6GHz) both from HP.

Fairly Big Hard Drive Capacity
The hard drive capacity of desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as the ThinkCentre E73 range from 250GB to 2TB. With a hard drive capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 has one of the bigger hard drive capacity amongst few processor core PCs of this age.
If this desktop computer hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Acer Revo One RL85 (£299.99) (2TB) which is also higher rated.
Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity
The average total storage capacity of desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the ThinkCentre E73 is 550GB, and the total storage capacity range from 8GB to 3TB. With a total storage capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 has a quite big total storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the ThinkCentre E73.
If this Lenovo PC total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the Acer Revo One RL85 (£299.99) (2TB) which also has a higher rating.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This personal computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many computers of this spec and age.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many desktop computers of a similar age and type to it.
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 desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to it.
Four Processor Threads
The ThinkCentre E73 has more processor threads than most of the computers of a similar age and type to the ThinkCentre E73. Most of the few processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the ThinkCentre E73 only have between two and three processor threads, however this desktop computer has four processor threads.
6 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most PCs of this age and type have between one and five USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 which has two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on few processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as 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.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
The ThinkCentre E73 is a two USB 3.0 port PC. Most of the other personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ThinkCentre E73 have between one and five USB 3.0 ports.
Only One 5.25" Bay
The ThinkCentre E73 is a one 5.25" bay PC.
+3 More reasons against
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The ThinkCentre E73 has a fairly small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory (only 1.024 gigabytes) compared to most of the other computers of a comparable age and spec to the ThinkCentre E73. The smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of few processor core PCs that came out around the same time as the ThinkCentre E73 is 1GB, the biggest is 16GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 2GB.
The heights of few processor core PCs that have been on the market for more than a year range from 10mm to 500mm, and the average height is 190mm. With a height of 397 millimeters, the ThinkCentre E73 is fairly tall compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable spec and age to the ThinkCentre E73.
