11 Reasons For
Acer Has Good Reviews for Its PCs
Acer is one of the better rated computer manufacturers according to average expert and user reviews, and Acer also has good reviews for its medium processor core computers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many desktop computers of a similar spec and age to it.
Quite Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
With a discrete graphics adapter memory of 4,096 gigabytes, the Acer Aspire TC-605 has one of the bigger discrete graphics adapter memory capacities amongst computers of this age. The average discrete graphics adapter memory of PCs of a similar age and spec to the Aspire TC-605 is 2.1TB.
Quite Big Hard Drive Capacity
The average hard drive capacity of medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the Aspire TC-605 is 860GB. The Aspire TC-605 has one of the bigger hard drive capacity (2,000 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
Quite Big Total Storage Capacity
The average total storage capacity of computers that have been available for more than a year is 770GB, and the total storage capacity range from 4GB to 3.6TB. With a total storage capacity of 2,000 gigabytes, the Acer Aspire TC-605 has a fairly big total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as the Aspire TC-605.
If you want a computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the DELL XPS 8700 (2TB).
Quite Big Internal Memory
The average internal memory of medium processor core computers that have been around for more than a year is 7.8GB. With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the Aspire TC-605 has one of the bigger internal memory amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age.
+6 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many computers of this type and age.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that were released more than a year ago.
Fairly Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
With a discrete graphics adapter memory of 4,096 megabytes, the Aspire TC-605 has one of the bigger discrete graphics adapter memory amongst comparable spec PCs of this age. Across all the medium processor core computers that have been available for more than a year the discrete graphics adapter memory range from 4.9MB to 8.2GB.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that were launched more than a year ago.
5 Reasons Against
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The Acer Aspire TC-605 has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (only 1,100 megahertz) amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of desktop computers of this type and age range from 700MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to it. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
Computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth considering include the Fujitsu W530 (£1,035.64) (SSD).
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This desktop computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been around for more than a year.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The Aspire TC-605 has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as it. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this computer.
+2 More reasons against
At 13 kilograms, the Aspire TC-605 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar age and type to the Aspire TC-605. Medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Aspire TC-605 have weights of between 38g and 23kg, and the average weight is 7.6kg.
