This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many personal computers of this type and age.
Lenovo Has Good Personal Computer Reviews
On average Lenovo medium processor core computers have good reviews as do all desktop computers produced by Lenovo.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This PC has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most commonly found EPEAT compliance on computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
Computers of a similar age and type to the ThinkCentre E73 have maximum turbo frequencies of between 1.8GHz and 4.4GHz. The Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 has one of the faster maximum turbo frequencies (4 gigahertz) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on similar spec computers that have been available for more than a year.
+2 More reasons for
At only 101 millimeters, the ThinkCentre E73 is fairly short compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as the ThinkCentre E73. The shortest personal computer of a comparable age and type to the ThinkCentre E73 is 9.8mm high, the tallest is 560mm, and the average height is 290mm.
5 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port computer.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many desktop computers of a similar type and age 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.
Other HDD PCs currently available that you might want to consider include the DELL OptiPlex 7010 (£379.99), or the Lenovo M91p (£426.50) which is cheaper.
If the storage speed of this Lenovo desktop computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the DELL OptiPlex 9020 (£358.80) (SSD and cheaper), the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (SSD and cheaper), or the Fujitsu D556 (£459.78) (SSD and cheaper).
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many desktop computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core computers that came out more than a year ago. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this desktop computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this personal computer.
+2 More reasons against
Only One 3.5" Bay
The ThinkCentre E73 is a one 3.5" bay personal computer. Most of the other personal computers that were released more than a year ago have between one and seven 3.5" bays.
5 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73
Released Over a Year Ago
This desktop computer has been on the market for over a year.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.2 gigahertz, the ThinkCentre E73 has a fairly average processor clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the ThinkCentre E73.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3.2GHz processor clock speed computers currently available including cheaper computers such as the Acer Aspire XC-705 (£359.98).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
The Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 has a pretty average hard drive capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar age and type to the ThinkCentre E73.
Other 1TB hard drive capacity computers currently available that you might want to consider include cheaper computers such as the Acer Aspire XC-705 (£359.98).
If this Lenovo PC hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Acer Aspire T3-710 (£461.98) (2TB and cheaper).
+3 Other reasons
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the ThinkCentre E73 has a fairly average total storage capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar age and type to the ThinkCentre E73.
It may also be worth considering one of the other 1TB total storage capacity PCs currently available including the DELL OptiPlex 7020 (£429.00), or the HP Z230 (£935.04) which is cheaper.
If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire T3-710 (£461.98) (2TB) which is also cheaper.
Average Internal Memory
The ThinkCentre E73 has a relatively typical internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar age and spec to the ThinkCentre E73.
We compared all the other 8GB memory PCs to this computer and we think the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (£365.00) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If you would prefer a computer with a bigger internal memory then you might want to consider the Asus K31AD (£722.38) (12GB).
