This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on similar spec PCs that have been available for more than a year.
Price Drop of £30.00
The X310 has dropped in price by £30.00 in the last month.
Lenovo PCs Have Good Reviews
We calculated the average reviews for all Lenovo computers and also specifically for Lenovo medium processor core computers and found that in both cases Lenovo had good reviews.
Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity
Across all the computers that are a comparable age to the X310 the total storage capacity range from 4GB to 3.6TB. The Lenovo X310 has one of the bigger total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
There are a number of alternative 1TB total storage capacity PCs currently available which you might also want to look at including cheaper desktop computers such as the HP Z230.
If you are looking for a personal computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire T3-710 (£461.98) (2TB and cheaper).
Quite Big Internal Memory
The smallest internal memory of personal computers of this spec and age is 2GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average internal memory is 7.8GB. The Lenovo X310 has one of the bigger internal memory (8 gigabytes) amongst comparable spec computers of this age.
We compared this PC to all the other 8GB memory PCs and we think cheaper desktop computers such as the HP 110 (£428.73) is also worth considering.
Personal computers with a bigger internal memory that might also be worth looking at include the Inspiron 3000 (12GB), or the Inspiron 3847 (£470.00) (16GB) both from DELL or the Asus K31AD (£722.38) (12GB).
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many computers that were released around the same time as it.
+7 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that were launched more than a year ago.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on medium processor core computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory
The Lenovo X310 has a fairly big maximum internal memory (32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable age and type to the X310. Computers that were released around the same time as the X310 have maximum internal memory of between 2GB and 520GB.
7.1 Audio Output Channel
The Lenovo X310 has a 7.1 audio output channel which is better than most computers of a similar type and age to it. Most computers that were released one year ago have a 5.1 audio output channel.
A 7.1 audio output channel is in fact the best audio output amongst all personal computers of this spec and age.
The worst audio output amongst comparable types of computer is 5.1.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Lenovo X310 is more than most medium processor core computers that were launched more than a year ago. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on personal computers that are a comparable age to the X310.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This PC supports a GDDR5 discrete graphics memory type, which is the most frequently supported discrete graphics memory type on medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as it.
3 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as it. 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.
There are a number of other HDD computers currently available that you might want to look at including the Lenovo M91p (£426.50), the DELL OptiPlex 7010 (£379.99), or the HP 280 G1 (£343.19) which is cheaper.
If the storage speed of this desktop computer is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the DELL OptiPlex 9020 (£358.80) (SSD and cheaper), the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (SSD and cheaper), or the Fujitsu D556 (£459.78) (SSD and cheaper).
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 personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
The Lenovo X310 is very tall (520.7 millimeters) compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to the X310. The average height of medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the X310 is 290mm, and the heights range from 9.8mm to 560mm.
3 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo X310
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this computer was released.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.2 gigahertz, the Lenovo X310 has a relatively standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been around for more than a year.
If this desktop computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the OptiPlex 9020 (£419.39) (3.3GHz and cheaper), or the OptiPlex 7020 (£429.00) (3.3GHz and cheaper) both from DELL.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the Lenovo X310 has a fairly typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other PCs of a similar spec and age to the X310.
There are a number of other 1TB hard drive capacity personal computers currently available which you might want to consider including the HP Z230 which is cheaper.
If you are looking for a bigger hard drive capacity then you might want to consider the Acer Aspire T3-710 (£461.98) (2TB and cheaper), or the Lenovo H50 (£379.97) (2TB and cheaper).
