Lenovo Desktop Computers Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Lenovo desktop computers and also specifically for Lenovo medium processor core personal computers and found that in both cases Lenovo had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

SSD Storage Medium

The ThinkCentre E73 SFF has a faster storage speed than most medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as it. This desktop computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most desktop computers of this age and spec 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.

This personal computer's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed across all medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across comparable types of personal computer.
