17 Reasons For
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many personal computers that came out more than a year ago.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The Lenovo X310 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (1,200 megahertz) compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age. Across all the medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the X310 the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 700MHz to 1,300MHz.
Lenovo Computers Have Good Reviews
Lenovo has good average ratings for its medium processor core computers as well as across its entire desktop computer range.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
At 3.6 gigahertz, the Lenovo X310 has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable age and type to the X310. Across all the medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as the X310 the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 3.6GHz processor clock speed personal computers currently available including the DELL XPS 8700, or the HP ProDesk 490 G2 (£680.56) which is cheaper.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
At 16 gigabytes, the Lenovo X310 has a quite big internal memory compared to most of the other computers of a comparable age and type to the X310. The smallest internal memory of personal computers of this type and age is 2GB and the biggest is 64GB.
We compared this PC to all the other 16GB memory PCs and we think the Alienware X51, and the DELL XPS 8700 which is cheaper is also worth considering.
Quite Big Total Storage Capacity
The total storage capacity of medium processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to the X310 range from 4GB to 3.6TB, and the average total storage capacity is 770GB. With a total storage capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the Lenovo X310 has a fairly big total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the X310.
PCs with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth looking at include the Asus G20AJ (£778.94) (1TB), or the Acer Aspire TC-705 (£626.99) (2TB) which is also cheaper.

10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on desktop computers of a similar type and age to it.
Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
At 4 gigahertz, the Lenovo X310 has a quite fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other PCs of this type and age. Across all the medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the X310 the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many PCs of this type and age.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many desktop computers that are a comparable age to it.
Eight Processor Threads
The Lenovo X310 is a eight processor thread PC. Most of the other desktop computers of a similar age and type to the X310 only have between four and seven processor threads.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
The smallest processor cache of comparable spec personal computers that were released around the same time as the X310 is 2MB, the biggest is 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.6MB. At 8 megabytes, the Lenovo X310 has a quite big processor cache compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the X310.
Four USB 3.0 Ports
The Lenovo X310 is a four USB 3.0 port computer. Most of the other desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the X310 have between one and eight USB 3.0 ports.
Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory
With a maximum internal memory of 32 gigabytes, the Lenovo X310 has one of the bigger maximum internal memory amongst medium processor core computers of this age. Across all the medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the X310 the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 520GB.
7.1 Audio Output Channel
The Lenovo X310 has a 7.1 audio output channel which is better than the 5.1 audio output channel found on most personal computers of a comparable type and age to it.
A 7.1 audio output channel is in fact the best audio output amongst all medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the X310.
The worst audio output amongst comparable types of personal computer is 5.1.
Has One Memory Slot
The Lenovo X310 has a greater number of memory slots than most desktop computers of a similar spec and age to it. This PC has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on PCs of this type and age.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This computer supports a GDDR5 discrete graphics memory type, which is the most commonly supported discrete graphics memory type on desktop computers that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
5 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is Hybrid-HDD, which is typical of many comparable spec desktop computers that were released 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.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many computers of a similar age and spec to it.
We checked 156 PCs of a similar spec and age and they range in price from £99 to £2,194. We think that this personal computer looks expensive compared to other PCs of a similar spec and age.
Quite Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the X310 is 1GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 2.8GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 1.024 gigabytes, the Lenovo X310 has one of the smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memories amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age.
+2 More reasons against
When compared to other desktop computers of this spec and age that we have assessed, the Lenovo X310's height of 520.7 millimeters is one of the tallest. Medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the X310 have heights of between 9.8mm and 560mm.
