Two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) Portss

The Lenovo P900 is a two ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports PC. Most of the other many processor cores desktop computers that have been on the market for more than two years have between one and two ethernet LAN (RJ-45) portss.

Chart Edit

Four PCI Express X16 (Gen 3.x) Slotss

The Lenovo P900 has more PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slotss than most of the computers of a similar age and spec to the P900. Most of the personal computers of this type and age only have between two and three PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slotss, however this computer has four PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slotss.

Chart Edit

Three Number of 5.25" Bayss

The Lenovo P900 has more number of 5.25" bayss than most of the many processor cores desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the P900. This desktop computer is a three number of 5.25" bays desktop computer compared to most of the similar spec PCs that have been available for around the same time as the P900 which only have between one and two number of 5.25" bayss.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slots

The number of memory slots found on the Lenovo P900 is more than most computers of this spec and age. The most commonly found memory slots is 4x DIMM, but this memory slots is not found on this desktop 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 P900 is more than most PCs of a similar spec and age to it. This personal computer supports a Vertical placement supported, which is the most frequently supported placement supported supported by desktop computers of this type and age.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Processor Frequency

With a processor frequency of only 1.6 gigahertz, the Lenovo P900 has one of the slowest processor frequencys amongst many processor cores desktop computers of this age. The processor frequencys of desktop computers that are a similar age to the P900 range from 1.6GHz to 3.7GHz, and the average processor frequency is 2.9GHz.

If you are looking for a PC with a faster processor frequency then you might also want to look at the Lenovo P700 (£1,851.60) (2.4GHz).

Only HDD Storage Media

The Lenovo P900 has an HDD storage media which is faster than most similar spec PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as it. Most computers that were released around the same time as it 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.

An HDD storage media is actually the worst storage speed amongst all similar spec computers that came out around the same time as the P900.

Amongst comparable types of computer the best storage speed is SSD.
