Eight USB 3.0 Ports
The Thinkstation P500 is a eight USB 3.0 port personal computer. Most of the other desktop computers that came out more than a year ago have between four and eight USB 3.0 ports.
+5 More reasons for
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
The Thinkstation P500 has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than the DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type found on most many processor core PCs that have been available for more than a year.
This PC's internal memory type (DDR4-SDRAM) is actually the best internal memory type across all many processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as the Thinkstation P500.
A DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type is the worst internal memory type amongst comparable types of PC.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This desktop computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many computers of this spec and age.
Has One Memory Slot
The Lenovo Thinkstation P500 has a greater number of memory slots than most computers of a comparable age and type to it. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 8x DIMM are also found on this computer.
Supports One Case Placement
The number of placements supported by the Lenovo Thinkstation P500 is more than most comparable spec PCs that have been around for more than a year. This personal computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by PCs of a comparable type and age to the Thinkstation P500.
5 Reasons Against
Very Small Solid-State Drive Capacity
Computers of a comparable age and spec to the Thinkstation P500 have solid-state drive capacities of between 120GB and 1TB, and the average solid-state drive capacity is 360GB. At only 240 gigabytes, the Thinkstation P500 has a fairly small solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other many processor core PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the Thinkstation P500.
Only One Discrete Graphics Adapter
The Lenovo Thinkstation P500 is a one discrete graphics adapter desktop computer.
Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of desktop computers of a comparable spec and age to the Thinkstation P500 is 2GB and the biggest is 8.2GB. With a discrete graphics adapter memory of only 4,096 megabytes, the Thinkstation P500 has one of the smaller discrete graphics adapter memory amongst many processor core PCs of this age.
Only One Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) Port
The Thinkstation P500 is a one Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) port desktop computer. Most of the other many processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Thinkstation P500 have between one and two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports.
+2 More reasons against
Across all the many processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as the Thinkstation P500 the weights range from 5kg to 30kg, and the average weight is 12kg. The Lenovo Thinkstation P500 is one of the heavier similar spec personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Thinkstation P500 (22.2 kilograms) amongst computers of this age.
