At 3.5 gigahertz, the Lenovo ThinkCentre M73 SFF has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that were released more than two years ago.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 3.5GHz processor clock speed computers currently available including the ProDesk 490 G2 (£399.00), the ProDesk 400 G2 MT, or the ProDesk 600 SFF all from HP which is cheaper.
