This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as it.
Quite Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of comparable spec computers that have been around for more than a year range from 1GB to 64GB. The Lenovo ThinkCentre M73 SFF has one of the bigger maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (1.74 gigabytes) amongst personal computers of this age.
SSD Storage Medium
The ThinkCentre M73 SFF has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most PCs of this age and spec. Most desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it 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 amongst all comparable spec computers that have been around for a similar time to the ThinkCentre M73 SFF.
Amongst comparable types of computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
Personal computers with a faster storage speed that might also be worth looking at include the Zotac ZBOX PI320 (Flash), or the Asus CHROMEBIT (£99.97) (Flash) which also has a higher rating.
On average Lenovo medium processor core personal computers have good reviews as do all desktop computers produced by Lenovo.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This personal computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than a year ago.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on computers of this spec and age.

10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on computers of a comparable age and type to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it.
The widths of personal computers that came out more than a year ago range from 33mm to 510mm, and the average width is 180mm. At only 101 millimeters, the Lenovo ThinkCentre M73 SFF is fairly narrow compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the ThinkCentre M73 SFF.
5 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The ThinkCentre M73 SFF is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port PC.
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,100 megahertz, the ThinkCentre M73 SFF has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that came out around the same time as the ThinkCentre M73 SFF. The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of computers that have been around for a similar time to the ThinkCentre M73 SFF is 500MHz and the fastest is 1,300MHz.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
At only 180 gigabytes, the ThinkCentre M73 SFF has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and spec. The total storage capacity of comparable spec personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the ThinkCentre M73 SFF range from 4GB to 3.6TB, and the average total storage capacity is 800GB.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on desktop computers that were launched around the same time as it.
+2 More reasons against
Only Has One Memory Slot
The ThinkCentre M73 SFF has a greater number of memory slots than most computers of this type and age. The most frequently found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this Lenovo computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this computer.
