Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.6 gigahertz, the Lenovo X310 has one of the faster processor clock speeds amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The processor clock speeds of computers that have been available for a comparable time to the X310 range from 1GHz to 4.1GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.
If you want a computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to consider the HP Z440 (£1,402.57) (3.7GHz).
Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity
The smallest total storage capacity of personal computers of a comparable type and age to the X310 is 32GB, the biggest is 3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 710GB. At 1,000 gigabyte, the Lenovo X310 has a fairly big total storage capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers that are a comparable age to the X310.
Computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth considering include the Lenovo P300 Tower (£771.89) (2TB).
+11 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on personal computers of a comparable age and type to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as it.
Very Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
When compared to other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the X310 that we have assessed, the maximum turbo frequency of the Lenovo X310 of 4 gigahertz is one of the fastest. The slowest maximum turbo frequency of medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the X310 is 1.3GHz and the fastest is 4.4GHz.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on PCs of this age and spec.
Eight Processor Threads
The Lenovo X310 has more processor threads than most of the PCs of this type and age. Most of the medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the X310 only have between four and seven processor threads, however this personal computer has eight processor threads.
Quite Big Processor Cache
PCs of this age and type have processor caches of between 0.51MB and 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.8MB. With a processor cache of 8 megabytes, the Lenovo X310 has one of the bigger processor caches amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Four USB 3.0 Ports
The Lenovo X310 is a four USB 3.0 port computer. Most of the other desktop computers of this spec and age have between one and eight USB 3.0 ports.
Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory
With a maximum internal memory of 32 gigabytes, the Lenovo X310 has a quite big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and spec. The maximum internal memory of medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the X310 range from 2GB to 260GB.
Supports One Case Placement
The Lenovo X310 has a greater number of placements than most desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to it. This Lenovo desktop computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by PCs of this age and spec.
Has One Memory Slot
The Lenovo X310 has a greater number of memory slots than most comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for more than two years. This Lenovo PC has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on comparable spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the X310.
5 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is Hybrid-HDD, which is typical of many PCs of a similar spec and age to 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 Four USB 2.0 Ports
The Lenovo X310 is a four USB 2.0 port personal computer.
The weights of PCs of a similar spec and age to the X310 range from 250g to 24kg, and the average weight is 8.2kg. At 12.5 kilograms, the Lenovo X310 is quite heavy compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that were released more than two years ago.
When compared to other PCs that have been on the market for more than two years that we have checked the height of, the Lenovo X310's height of 520.7 millimeters is one of the tallest. The shortest PC that has been on the market for around the same time as the X310 is 19mm high and the tallest is 560mm.
+2 More reasons against
At 546.1 millimeters, the Lenovo X310 is very deep compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the X310. Desktop computers of this spec and age have depths of between 33mm and 690mm, and the average depth is 360mm.
2 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo X310
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when Lenovo released the X310.
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the Lenovo X310 has a pretty standard internal memory compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that came out more than two years ago.
If you would prefer a PC with a bigger internal memory then you might also want to consider the Apple Mac Pro (12GB).
