This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many computers of this age and type.
Lenovo few processor core PCs have good ratings on average and across all desktop computers Lenovo is one of the better rated brands.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.6 gigahertz, the ThinkCentre E73 SFF has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other computers of a comparable age and spec to the ThinkCentre E73 SFF. Across all the computers of a similar age and type to the ThinkCentre E73 SFF the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 3.9GHz.
We compared all the other 3.6GHz processor clock speed personal computers to this personal computer and we think the HP HP 280 G1 (£267.41) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If this Lenovo computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to look at the S500 SFF (3.7GHz), or the S500 SFF (£326.06) (3.7GHz) both from Lenovo or the Fujitsu D556 (£293.98) (3.7GHz).
Has One Cable Included
The ThinkCentre E73 SFF has a greater number of included cables than most few processor core PCs that were launched more than a year ago. This computer has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on few processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the ThinkCentre E73 SFF.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many few processor core PCs that have been around for more than a year.
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 few processor core PCs that have been available for around the same time as it.
+2 More reasons for
Two PCI Express X1 Slots
The ThinkCentre E73 SFF is a two PCI Express x1 slot PC. Most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots.
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 PC. Most of the other computers of this age and spec have between one and five USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
£21.11 Price Increase
The ThinkCentre E73 SFF has increased in price by £21.11 in the last 1 days.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many computers of this age and type. 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 think you might also be interested in some of the alternative HDD PCs currently available including cheaper PCs such as the Asus VC62B (£234.99).
PCs with a faster storage speed that might be worth considering include the Acer Chromebox CXI (£270.57) (SSD), or the HP Chromebox (£240.01) (SSD) which is also cheaper.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
The ThinkCentre E73 SFF is a two USB 3.0 port PC. Most of the other PCs of a similar type and age to the ThinkCentre E73 SFF have between one and five USB 3.0 ports.
+2 More reasons against
Only One 5.25" Bay
The ThinkCentre E73 SFF is a one 5.25" bay desktop computer.
4 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 SFF
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this desktop computer was released.
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 SFF has a pretty standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other PCs that came out more than a year ago.
At 500 gigabytes, the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 SFF has a fairly average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been around for more than a year.
If you are looking for a computer with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might also want to consider the HP 300-235na (£366.29) (1TB), the Lenovo H30 (£349.97) (1TB), or the Acer Aspire XC-705 (£317.17) (1TB).
+2 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the ThinkCentre E73 SFF has a relatively typical internal memory compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age.
If this personal computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the HP ProDesk 600 G1 SFF (8GB) which is also cheaper.
