+9 More reasons against
Very Slow Hard Drive Speed
Across all the computers of this spec and age the hard drive speeds range from 5,400 RPM to 7,200 RPM. The Aspire TC-705 has one of the slower hard drive speeds (only 5,400 revolutions per minute) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The Acer Aspire TC-705 has a greater number of memory slots than most computers of a comparable type and age to it. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this desktop computer.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
The Aspire TC-705 is a two USB 3.0 port desktop computer.
Quite Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Medium processor core computers that have been around for more than a year have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 2.8GB. The Aspire TC-705 has one of the smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (only 1.024 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
Only One PCI Express X1 Slot
Most personal computers of a comparable type and age 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.
