This review is from: ThinkCentre Desktop PC M73 (10B6001SUS) Intel Core i5 4th Gen 4590 (3.30 GHz) 4 GB DDR3 500 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4600 Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit / Windows 8.1 Pro Downgrade
Pros: Small form factor
Cons: Realtek chip is very picky and won't work at all in any OS I've tried to use.
Other Thoughts: Well, the CPU is good, but that's about it. It's loaded down with all the nasty OEM crud that Lenovo has, and the mobo doesn't want to support more than 4GB of RAM, and I've tried both DDR3 and DDR3L in there. BIOS is crippled enough that it's not worth your trouble to get in there (It's F1 to enter, BTW).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It works, and it even lets me use a USB 3.0 drive to boot from. Does everything I've asked of it!
Cons: The one yellow port looks funny.READ FULL REVIEW

Cons: Takes a while to boot up, but what can you expect from a server board?READ FULL REVIEW
