Acer has good average reviews for its medium processor core computers as well as across its entire computer range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that came out more than two years ago.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on computers that are a similar age to it.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This personal computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many desktop computers that are a comparable age to it.
Two PCI Express X16 Slots
The Acer Veriton 2631 is a two PCI Express x16 slot computer. Most of the other PCs of a similar age and spec to the Veriton 2631 have between one and two PCI Express x16 slots.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as it.
+2 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on computers of this spec and age.
8 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The Veriton 2631 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port desktop computer.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that came out more than two years 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.
If the storage speed of this medium processor core computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the Zotac ZBOX CA320 nano (SSD) which also has a higher rating.
Very Small Internal Memory
The Veriton 2631 has a quite small internal memory (only 4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers of this spec and age. The internal memory of medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Veriton 2631 range from 2GB to 64GB.
Very Small Hard Drive Capacity
The hard drive capacity of comparable spec PCs that came out around the same time as the Veriton 2631 range from 320GB to 2TB. With a hard drive capacity of only 500 gigabytes, the Acer Veriton 2631 has one of the smaller hard drive capacity amongst PCs of this age.
If you would prefer a personal computer with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might also want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (£292.84) (1TB) which is also higher rated.
+5 More reasons against
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
The Acer Veriton 2631 is a two USB 3.0 port desktop computer. Most of the other desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the Veriton 2631 have between one and seven USB 3.0 ports.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
The smallest maximum internal memory of comparable spec computers that have been available for a similar time to the Veriton 2631 is 2GB and the biggest is 260GB. The Veriton 2631 has a quite small maximum internal memory (only 16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to the Veriton 2631.
Quite Small Processor Cache
The average processor cache of medium processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to the Veriton 2631 is 6.7MB. At only 6 megabytes, the Veriton 2631 has a quite small processor cache compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago.
Only Four Processor Threads
The Acer Veriton 2631 is a four processor thread desktop computer.
3 Other reasons to consider the Acer Veriton 2631
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when Acer released the Veriton 2631.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.2 gigahertz, the Acer Veriton 2631 has a pretty standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been available for a similar time to the Veriton 2631.
If this personal computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the Acer Veriton M2631G (3.3GHz).
Average Total Storage Capacity
The Veriton 2631 has a pretty standard total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the Veriton 2631.
If this Acer PC total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Apple Mac Pro (£2,289.06) (512GB).
