The Thinkstation P500 has more USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys than most of the comparable spec computers that came out around the same time as the Thinkstation P500. This desktop computer is a eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantity computer compared to most of the many processor cores PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the Thinkstation P500 which only have between two and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys.
Fairly Fast Memory Bandwidth Supported by Processor (max)
With a memory bandwidth supported by processor (max) of 68 gigabytes per second, the Thinkstation P500 has a quite fast memory bandwidth supported by processor (max) compared to most of the other computers of a comparable age and spec to the Thinkstation P500. The memory bandwidth supported by processor (max)s of PCs of this age and spec range from 51GB/s to 68GB/s, and the average memory bandwidth supported by processor (max) is 63GB/s.
Lenovo Has Good PC Reviews
PCs produced by Lenovo generally have good ratings compared to other manufacturers.
Quite Fast Processor Frequency
At 3.5 gigahertz, the Thinkstation P500 has a fairly fast processor frequency compared to most of the other personal computers that are a similar age to the Thinkstation P500. Personal computers of this age and spec have processor frequencys of between 1.6GHz and 3.5GHz.
There are a number of other 3.5GHz processor clock speed desktop computers currently available which you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the DELL Precision T5810[plb_3433476_price].
SSD Storage Media
The storage speed of this PC is SSD, which is typical of many comparable spec desktop computers that were released more than a year ago. 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.
Quite Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
The average solid-state drive capacity of desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Thinkstation P500 is 310GB, and the solid-state drive capacitys range from 120GB to 1TB. At 512 gigabytes, the Thinkstation P500 has a fairly big solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar age and spec to the Thinkstation P500.
+3 More reasons for
Fairly Fast Processor Boost Frequency
The Thinkstation P500 has one of the faster processor boost frequencys (3.8 gigahertz) amongst personal computers of this age. The processor boost frequencys of personal computers that came out around the same time as the Thinkstation P500 range from 2.6GHz to 3.9GHz.
Has One Memory Slots
The number of memory slots found on the Thinkstation P500 is more than most computers of a comparable type and age to it. This computer has an 8x DIMM memory slots, which is the most commonly found memory slots found on computers of a comparable age and type to the Thinkstation P500.
2 Reasons Against
Very Small Internal Memory
The average internal memory of desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the Thinkstation P500 is 17GB. The Thinkstation P500 has a fairly small internal memory (only 8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other computers that are a comparable age to the Thinkstation P500.
We compared this personal computer to all the other 8GB memory desktop computers and we think the HP Z420[plb_2498184_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
PCs with a bigger internal memory that might also be worth considering include the Apple ME253[plb_3040912_price] (12GB).
The lightest personal computer that has been on the market for more than a year is 5kg heavy, the heaviest is 30kg, and the average weight is 17kg. At 22.2 kilograms, the Thinkstation P500 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that are a similar age to the Thinkstation P500.
