Medium processor core personal computers built by Acer have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all computers (not just medium processor core personal computers) and found that Acer also has good reviews across its entire range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on computers of this type and age.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many desktop computers that are a comparable age to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on computers that are a comparable age to it.
13 Reasons Against
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,100 megahertz, the Acer Aspire TC-705 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other PCs of this type and age. The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the Aspire TC-705 is 500MHz, the fastest is 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on personal computers of this age and type. 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.
If the storage speed of this personal computer is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the W530 (£1,035.64) (SSD), or the M740 (£1,513.20) (SSD) both from Fujitsu.
Quite Small Internal Memory
Across all the personal computers that were released more than a year ago the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB. The Acer Aspire TC-705 has a very small internal memory (only 4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other PCs that were released one year ago.
We compared all the other 4GB memory personal computers to this personal computer and we think the DELL PowerEdge T20 (£287.97) which has better reviews is also worth considering.
If you are looking for a PC with a bigger internal memory then you might also want to look at the DELL 270 (£349.99) (6GB).
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
The hard drive capacity of desktop computers of this spec and age range from 1GB to 3TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 890GB. The Aspire TC-705 has one of the smaller hard drive capacity (only 500 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
If this Acer personal computer hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the DELL 270 (£349.99) (1TB), or the HP ProDesk 600 G2 MT (1TB).
+10 More reasons against
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 desktop computers of this age and spec.
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
The average total storage capacity of medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than a year is 800GB. With a total storage capacity of only 500 gigabytes, the Aspire TC-705 has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
Most medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Aspire TC-705 have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the Aspire TC-705 which has two USB 2.0 ports.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Acer Aspire TC-705 is more than most desktop computers of this type and age. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this desktop computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this Acer PC.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of similar spec computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Aspire TC-705 is 3.7GB. At only 1.024 gigabytes, the Aspire TC-705 has a quite small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other PCs that were released one year ago.
Only One PCI Express X1 Slot
Most medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Aspire TC-705 have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots, including the Aspire TC-705 which has one PCI Express x1 slot.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
The average maximum internal memory of medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the Aspire TC-705 is 33GB, and the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 520GB. With a maximum internal memory of only 16 gigabytes, the Acer Aspire TC-705 has one of the smaller maximum internal memory amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Quite Small Processor Cache
The smallest processor cache of medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year is 2MB and the biggest is 10MB. The Acer Aspire TC-705 has a quite small processor cache (only 6 megabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and type.
Across all the similar spec PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Aspire TC-705 the weights range from 38g to 23kg. With a weight of 10.1 kilograms, the Aspire TC-705 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago.
