9 Reasons For

64-Bit Processor Operating Modes

This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating modes, which is typical of many many processor cores desktop computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Lenovo Has Good Personal Computer Reviews

Computers built by Lenovo generally have good ratings.

Very Big Maximum Internal Memory

Computers that have been available for more than two years have maximum internal memorys of between 32GB and 520GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 120GB. With a maximum internal memory of 512 gigabytes, the Lenovo D30 has a very big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other many processor cores desktop computers that came out around the same time as the D30.

Chart Edit

Two PCI Slotss

The Lenovo D30 has more PCI slotss than most of the personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the D30. This personal computer is a two PCI slots computer compared to most of the personal computers of this spec and age which only have one PCI slots.

Chart Edit

Three Number of 5.25" Bayss

Most of the other PCs that came out around the same time as the D30 only have between one and two number of 5.25" bayss, however the Lenovo D30 has three number of 5.25" bayss.

Chart Edit

Six Number of 3.5" Bayss

The Lenovo D30 has more number of 3.5" bayss than most of the PCs that were released more than two years ago. Most of the comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to the D30 only have between two and five number of 3.5" bayss, however this personal computer has six number of 3.5" bayss.

Chart Edit

Eight USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

Most many processor cores desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to the D30 have between two and nine USB 2.0 ports quantitys, including the Lenovo D30 which has eight USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slots

The number of memory slots found on the Lenovo D30 is more than most many processor cores desktop computers that were launched more than two years ago. The most commonly found memory slots is 4x DIMM, but this memory slots is not found on this Lenovo personal computer. The memory slotss 16x DIMM are also found on this personal computer.

Chart Edit

Supports One Placement Supported

The number of placements supported by the Lenovo D30 is more than most personal computers that are a comparable age to it. This Lenovo computer supports a Vertical placement supported, which is the most commonly supported placement supported supported by similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to the D30.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Very Slow Memory Clock Speeds Supported by Processor

With a memory clock speeds supported by processor of only 800 megahertz, the Lenovo D30 has one of the slower memory clock speeds supported by processors amongst many processor cores desktop computers of this age. Desktop computers of a similar type and age to the D30 have memory clock speeds supported by processors of between 800MHz and 1,600MHz.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Processor Frequency

PCs of this type and age have processor frequencys of between 1.6GHz and 3.7GHz, and the average processor frequency is 2.9GHz. With a processor frequency of only 2.1 gigahertz, the Lenovo D30 has one of the slower processor frequencys amongst many processor cores desktop computers of this age.

Desktop computers with a faster processor frequency that might also be worth considering include the Apple Mac Pro (£3,299.00) (3GHz).

Only HDD Storage Media

The Lenovo D30 has a faster storage speed than most personal computers of a comparable type and age to it. This desktop computer has an HDD storage media, whereas most comparable spec desktop computers that were released more than two years ago have a Flash storage media. 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.

This computer's storage speed (HDD) is in fact the worst storage speed amongst all computers of this age and type.

An SSD storage media is the best storage speed across similar types of computer.

Quite Slow Memory Bandwidth Supported by Processor (max)

With a memory bandwidth supported by processor (max) of only 51.2 gigabytes per second, the Lenovo D30 has one of the slower memory bandwidth supported by processor (max)s amongst desktop computers of this age. Across all the many processor cores desktop computers that came out around the same time as the D30 the memory bandwidth supported by processor (max)s range from 32GB/s to 68GB/s.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Boost Frequency

Desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the D30 have processor boost frequencys of between 2.5GHz and 4GHz. When compared to other personal computers of this spec and age that we have checked the processor boost frequency of, the Lenovo D30's processor boost frequency of only 2.6 gigahertz is one of the slowest.

Chart Edit

Very Small Internal Memory

Many processor cores desktop computers that have been available for a similar time to the D30 have internal memorys of between 4GB and 64GB, and the average internal memory is 25GB. The Lenovo D30 has a quite small internal memory (only 8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other many processor cores desktop computers that were released more than two years ago.

If this computer internal memory is too small for you then you might want to consider the Apple Mac Pro (£3,299.00) (16GB).

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed

The slowest memory clock speed of many processor cores desktop computers that were released around the same time as the D30 is 1,300MHz and the fastest is 2,200MHz. When compared to other many processor cores desktop computers that were released more than two years ago that we have assessed the memory clock speed of, the Lenovo D30's memory clock speed of only 1,600 megahertz is one of the slowest.

Chart Edit

Quite Low System Bus Rate

At only 7.2 Gigatransfers per second, the Lenovo D30 has a fairly low system bus rate compared to most of the other many processor cores desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the D30. The average system bus rate of many processor cores desktop computers that came out around the same time as the D30 is 8GT/s, and the system bus rates range from 5GT/s to 9.6GT/s.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The lightest many processor cores desktop computer that is a similar age to the D30 is 5kg heavy, the heaviest is 30kg, and the average weight is 11kg. The Lenovo D30 is fairly heavy (27.5 kilograms) compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and spec.
