11 Reasons For

Two CPU Configuration (max)s

The Lenovo P900 is a PC that takes two CPU configuration (max)s.

Chart Edit

Very Fast Memory Clock Speeds Supported by Processor

The memory clock speeds supported by processors of similar spec PCs that came out more than a year ago range from 800MHz to 1,600MHz. When compared to other personal computers of a similar age and spec to the P900, the memory clock speeds supported by processor of the Lenovo P900 of 1,600 megahertz is one of the fastest.

Chart Edit

Lenovo Has Good Reviews for Its Desktop Computers

PCs manufactured by Lenovo generally have good ratings.

SSD Storage Media

The storage speed of this computer is SSD, which is typical of many PCs of this type and age. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory

Personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the P900 have maximum internal memorys of between 32GB and 520GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 180GB. With a maximum internal memory of 256 gigabytes, the Lenovo P900 has a quite big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers that were released one year ago.

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 comparable spec computers that have been around for more than a year. This personal computer is a four PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slots desktop computer compared to most of the many processor cores PCs that have been available for around the same time as the P900 which only have between one and three PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slotss.

Chart Edit

Two PCI Express X4 (Gen 2.x) Slotss

Most of the other many processor cores PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the P900 only have one PCI Express x4 (Gen 2.x) slots, however the Lenovo P900 has two PCI Express x4 (Gen 2.x) slotss.

Chart Edit

Three Number of 5.25" Bayss

Most desktop computers of this age and type have between one and three number of 5.25" bayss, including the Lenovo P900 which has three number of 5.25" bayss.

Chart Edit

16 Processor Threadss

Most PCs that came out around the same time as the P900 have between 6 and 23 processor threadss, including the Lenovo P900 which has 16 processor threadss.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Processor Cache

The smallest processor cache of computers of a similar age and type to the P900 is 12MB, the biggest is 30MB, and the average processor cache is 17MB. With a processor cache of 20 megabytes, the Lenovo P900 has a quite big processor cache compared to most of the other PCs that came out around the same time as the P900.

Chart Edit

Two PCI Express X1 (Gen 2.x) Slotss

The Lenovo P900 is a two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots PC. Most of the other PCs of this age and spec only have one PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

The Lenovo P900 has one of the smaller total storage capacitys (only 256 gigabytes) amongst desktop computers of this age. Across all the comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to the P900 the total storage capacitys range from 120GB to 2.3TB.

PCs with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth looking at include the DELL Precision T5810[plb_3433476_price] (500GB and higher rated).

Only One PCI Express X16 Slots

The Lenovo P900 is a one PCI Express x16 slots PC.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Boost Frequency

At only 3.2 gigahertz, the Lenovo P900 has a quite slow processor boost frequency compared to most of the other PCs of a similar age and type to the P900. The slowest processor boost frequency of many processor cores PCs that came out around the same time as the P900 is 2.6GHz and the fastest is 3.9GHz.

Chart Edit

Very Heavy

The weights of many processor cores PCs that were released more than a year ago range from 5kg to 30kg, and the average weight is 17kg. With a weight of 29.9 kilograms, the Lenovo P900's weight is one of the heaviest amongst PCs that were launched around the same time as the P900.

3 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo P900

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when this many processor cores desktop computer was released.

Average Internal Memory

The Lenovo P900 has a pretty standard internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers of this spec and age.

We compared all the other 8GB memory desktop computers to this PC and we think because of it's better review score, the HP Z420[plb_2498184_price] is also worth considering.

If this computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the Apple ME253[plb_3040912_price] (12GB).
