Processor

The Central Processing Unit (CPU) is like the brains of your desktop computer. Its performance determines how fast and responsive your PC is. Generally, a processor with newer architecture, more CPU cores, higher TDP (measured in W), and faster clock speed (measured in GHz) tends to be more expensive and run faster than others with older architecture, fewer CPU cores, lower TDP, and lower clock speed.

For Lenovo ThinkCentre M90a, you have options to configure it with a 58W 10th Generation Intel Comet Lake dual-core Intel Celeron G5900 up to a 65W 10-core Intel Core i9-10900 with a boost speed up to 5.20 GHz.

Memory

The Random Access Memory or RAM is the super-fast and temporary storage used to handle all active tasks, apps, and games that will go away when your PC turns off. The more memory your PC has, the better multitasking your PC can handle without having to reload data from slower permanent storage that includes the hard disk drive or solid-state drive.

Fortunately, both PC allows you to upgrade later if you are unsatisfied with the amount of memory on your PC.

Ports
