The Lenovo ThinkCentre M73 Tiny has a 2.6GHz Pentium Dual Core (G3220T), Intel HD Graphics, 8 GB ram, 3 MB cache, Intel H81 Express Chipset, HD Audio Realtexk ALC283, Intel Centrino Wireless N 2230 + Bluetooth. 320 GB HD. Currently running Windows 10. It's small...about the size of a Mac Mini or a Chromebox etc. I can pick this up used in excellent condition for a shade over $100. Would this machine be adequate for Elementary? More than just adequate? Thanks!
I'm running Elementary an a low-spec HP laptop, and it runs at least as well as it did under Win8 (which I hated), and probably better.
My laptop has an AMD e1-2100 dual-core CPU and 8GB of RAM
Below site compares the performance of the G3220T vs my e1-2100:
As you can see, that Intel chip way outperforms my AMD, so I would say you'll have no issues at all running Elementary on that Lenovo, and the elelentary.io website lists recommended specs as
- 1 GHz 32-bit or 64-bit processor
- 1 GB of system memory (RAM)
- 15 GB of disk space
- Internet access
Give it a go - as long as you're careful when installing, so you don't wipe Windows 10 until you're sure you don't want it, you've got nothing to lose :)
