Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Aspire XC-705 the widths range from 33mm to 510mm, and the average width is 180mm.

Chart Edit

11 Reasons Against

Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

At only 1 gigabyte, the Aspire XC-705 has a fairly small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age. The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago is 1GB, the biggest is 8.2TB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 1.8TB.

Chart Edit

Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

The Acer Aspire XC-705 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port computer. Most of the other computers that have been around for around the same time as the Aspire XC-705 have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

Across all the PCs of this type and age the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,100 megahertz, the Acer Aspire XC-705 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

The average max memory bandwidth supported processor of PCs of this age and spec is 30GB/s, and the max memory bandwidth supported processor range from 10GB/s to 68GB/s. The Aspire XC-705 has one of the slower max memory bandwidth supported processor (only 25.6 gigabytes per second) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

With a max internal memory supported processor of only 32 gigabytes, the Aspire XC-705 has a quite small max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other computers of this age and type. Across all the similar spec desktop computers that were released one year ago the max internal memory supported processors range from 2GB to 770GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 65GB.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than a year ago. 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.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other HDD personal computers currently available including the Lenovo ThinkCentre M73 Mini Tower[plb_2966408_price] which is cheaper.

If the storage speed of this Acer PC is too slow for you then you might want to consider the OptiPlex 9020 SFF[pl_2414879_price] (SSD and cheaper), or the OptiPlex 7020 MT[pl_2788976_price] (SSD and cheaper) both from DELL.
