Lenovo Desktop Computers Have Good Reviews
Computers produced by Lenovo are some of the better computers according to average reviews from owners and experts.
Fairly Fast Processor Frequency
The Thinkstation P500 has one of the faster processor frequencys (3.5 gigahertz) amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age. The average processor frequency of many processor cores PCs that have been available for more than a year is 3GHz, and the processor frequencys range from 1.6GHz to 3.5GHz.
We compared all the other 3.5GHz processor clock speed desktop computers to this personal computer and we think because of it's better review score, the DELL Precision T5810[plb_3433476_price] is also worth considering.
SSD Storage Media
The storage speed of this personal computer is SSD, which is the most frequently found storage media on personal computers of a comparable spec and age to it. 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.
Ten Number of 2.5" Bayss
The Thinkstation P500 has more number of 2.5" bayss than most of the similar spec personal computers that were released more than a year ago. Most of the PCs of a similar age and spec to the Thinkstation P500 only have between two and nine number of 2.5" bayss, however this Lenovo computer has ten number of 2.5" bayss.

Two Number of 5.25" Bayss
The Thinkstation P500 is a two number of 5.25" bays computer.
Has One Memory Slots
The Lenovo Thinkstation P500 has a greater number of memory slots than most computers that are a similar age to it. This personal computer has an 8x DIMM memory slots, which is the most commonly found memory slots found on computers of a comparable age and spec to the Thinkstation P500.
3 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
At only 256 gigabytes, the Lenovo Thinkstation P500 has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable age and type to the Thinkstation P500. The average total storage capacity of many processor cores PCs that were released around the same time as the Thinkstation P500 is 900GB.
If this computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the DELL Precision T5810[plb_3433476_price] (500GB and higher rated).
Only Two Graphics Adapter DisplayPorts Quantitys
The Thinkstation P500 is a two graphics adapter DisplayPorts quantity PC.
Quite Small Internal Memory
PCs of this age and spec have internal memorys of between 4GB and 64GB, and the average internal memory is 17GB. At only 4 gigabytes, the Thinkstation P500 has a very small internal memory compared to most of the other personal computers that are a similar age to the Thinkstation P500.
If this personal computer internal memory is too small for you then you might want to consider the DELL Precision T5810[plb_3433476_price] (8GB) which also has a higher rating.
