This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on few processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as it.
Lenovo is one of the better rated desktop computer brands according to average reviews from experts and owners, and Lenovo also has good ratings for its few processor core PCs.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
The average processor clock speed of PCs of this spec and age is 2.8GHz. The ThinkCentre E73 SFF has a quite fast processor clock speed (3.6 gigahertz) compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable age and type to the ThinkCentre E73 SFF.
If this personal computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the Asus D510MT (3.7GHz and higher rated).
SSD Storage Medium
The Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 SFF has a faster storage speed than most computers of a comparable age and type to it. This personal computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most PCs that were released one year ago have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.
An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed across all personal computers of a comparable age and type to the ThinkCentre E73 SFF.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across comparable types of computer.
Desktop computers with a faster storage speed that might also be worth looking at include the Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 (£655.95) (Flash).
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This PC has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to it.

5 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most few processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as the ThinkCentre E73 SFF have between one and five USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the ThinkCentre E73 SFF which has two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The average total storage capacity of few processor core PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the ThinkCentre E73 SFF is 550GB, and the total storage capacity range from 8GB to 3TB. The Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 SFF has a fairly small total storage capacity (only 120 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers of this spec and age.
If this Lenovo PC total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 (£655.95) (256GB), or the Fujitsu D556 (£293.98) (500GB).
