10 Reasons For
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on computers of a similar age and spec to it.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
The on-board graphics adapter base frequencies of personal computers of this age and type range from 100MHz to 690MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 300MHz. The ThinkCentre E73 SFF has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter base frequencies (350 megahertz) amongst few processor core computers of this age.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
Across all the comparable spec computers that have been around for around the same time as the ThinkCentre E73 SFF the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 750MHz to 1,200MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,150 megahertz, the ThinkCentre E73 SFF has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies amongst similar spec computers of this age.
Fairly Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
The max internal memory supported processors of desktop computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the ThinkCentre E73 SFF range from 4GB to 64GB. At 32 gigabytes, the ThinkCentre E73 SFF has a quite big max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other few processor core computers that were released one year ago.
Lenovo Has Good Desktop Computer Reviews
On average Lenovo few processor core computers have good reviews as do all desktop computers produced by Lenovo.
Quite Big Internal Memory
The ThinkCentre E73 SFF has a quite big internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other computers that are a similar age to the ThinkCentre E73 SFF. The internal memory of PCs that are a comparable age to the ThinkCentre E73 SFF range from 2GB to 16GB.
+5 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on similar spec desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on desktop computers of a similar age and spec to it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on few processor core computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
Four Processor Threads
The Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 SFF is a four processor thread desktop computer.
5 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The ThinkCentre E73 SFF is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port computer. Most of the other few processor core computers that have been available for more than a year have between one and seven 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 frequently found storage medium on desktop 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.
We compared all the other HDD computers to this PC and we think cheaper PCs such as the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2229962_price] is also worth considering.
Personal computers with a faster storage speed that might also be worth looking at include the Acer Chromebox CXI[plb_2775942_price] (SSD) which is also cheaper.
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
At only 500 gigabytes, the ThinkCentre E73 SFF has a fairly small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other few processor core computers that came out more than a year ago. The smallest hard drive capacity of few processor core computers that came out around the same time as the ThinkCentre E73 SFF is 320GB, the biggest is 2TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 650GB.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 500GB hard drive capacity personal computers currently available including cheaper desktop computers such as the EliteDesk 800 G1[pl_2229962_price], or the HP 280 G1[pl_2692083_price] both from HP.
If you are looking for a bigger hard drive capacity then you might also want to look at the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_2877469_price] (1TB), the HP ProDesk 400 MT[plb_2926161_price] (1TB), or the Lenovo H30[plb_2938487_price] (1TB).
Quite Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Across all the computers of a comparable type and age to the ThinkCentre E73 SFF the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1GB to 16GB. The maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of the ThinkCentre E73 SFF of only 1.024 gigabytes is one of the smallest amongst few processor core computers that are a comparable age to the ThinkCentre E73 SFF.
+2 More reasons against
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
The ThinkCentre E73 SFF is a two USB 3.0 port PC. Most of the other PCs of this age and spec have between one and five USB 3.0 ports.
3 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 SFF
Released Over a Year Ago
This desktop computer was released over a year ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.5 gigahertz, the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 SFF has a fairly average processor clock speed compared to most of the other few processor core computers that are a comparable age to the ThinkCentre E73 SFF.
If you would prefer a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to consider the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 SFF[plb_2873230_price] (3.6GHz and cheaper).
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 SFF has a pretty average total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers of this type and age.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 500GB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available including cheaper computers such as the Revo One RL85[pl_2774663_price], or the Aspire XC-705[pl_2792845_price] both from Acer or the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2229962_price].
If this Lenovo computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_2877469_price] (1TB), the Asus VM62[plb_2901562_price] (1TB), or the HP ProDesk 400 MT[plb_2926161_price] (1TB).
