Lenovo ThinkCentre M73 is a tiny desktop PC for mainly business use, with the technical specs of Intel i3 4130T processor, 500GB HDD storage, 4GB DDR3 memory, Windows 10 Pro 64-bit operating system and a variety of connectivity ports including USB 3.0 ports, DisplayPort, VGA, 802.11ac wireless. Multi-language Win 10 Pro supports English, French and Spanish languages.

It appeared at Amazon.com on July 12, 2019 and is rated an average of 4.2 out of 5 stars by 59 customers at the moment. The first quarter of 2013 release dual core Intel i3-4130T (2 cores, 4 threads with hyperthreading) runs at the speeds between 2.9GHz with the turbo boost function.  The average CPU PassMark benchmark score is 2866 at the time of this post release and the typical TDP- Thermal Design Power is 35 watts. 4GB DDR3 SDRAM memory is the minimum any functional computer should have these days, but is also adequate for daily use purposes.

The 4GB is placed in a single DIMM and you can upgrade it easily by adding another 4GB RAM etc. in the second slot, especially if you want to run software like Illustrator or Photoshop. For local storage you have the regular 500GB Serial ATA hard drive at 7200rpm and no SSD. What’s lacking in speed here is compensated by the size. Connectivity options include 2 x USB 2.0 ports, VGA DB-15 port, DisplayPort, RJ-45 Ethernet connector at the rear and 2 x USB 3.0 ports (one of themLenovo ThinkCentre M73 Tiny Desktop Always On / Powered), a 3.5mm headphone / microphone combo jack, a 3.5mm stereo microphone jack. There is no HDMI output and the Bluetooth hardware is not pre-installed and you need to use a Bluetooth dongle if you’ll connect Bluetooth speakers, printers etc.

It is very compact in size and will not occupy much space on your desk- weighs only 2.9 pounds and measures 7L x 7.2W x 1.4H inches. In the box you’ll find the ThinkCenter Desktop, a USB keyboard and mouse combo, USB wireless adapter, power cord and user manual with warranty card.
