9 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Many processor core personal computers built by Apple have excellent reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all PCs (not just many processor core personal computers) and found that Apple also has excellent reviews across its entire range.

Quite Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

At 6,144 gigabytes, the Apple 2.7GHz has a fairly big discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other PCs of a similar age and spec to the 2.7GHz. Similar spec PCs that were launched around the same time as the 2.7GHz have discrete graphics adapter memory capacities of between 3GB and 8.2TB.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The storage speed of this personal computer is Flash, which is the most frequently found storage medium on PCs of this type and age. Flash Drives store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Processor Cache

The processor caches of many processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the 2.7GHz range from 12MB to 30MB. The Apple 2.7GHz has a quite big processor cache (30 megabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Gold EPEAT Compliance

This PC has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most frequently found EPEAT compliance on many processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Very Short

The heights of computers of this spec and age range from 250mm to 580mm, and the average height is 360mm. At only 251 millimeters, the Apple 2.7GHz is fairly short compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The weights of many processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the 2.7GHz range from 250g to 30kg, and the average weight is 12kg. The Apple 2.7GHz is one of the lighter many processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the 2.7GHz (only 5 kilograms) amongst many processor core personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

The narrowest PC of a similar age and spec to the 2.7GHz is 160mm wide, the widest is 450mm, and the average width is 180mm. At only 167 millimeters, the Apple 2.7GHz is fairly narrow compared to most of the other computers of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

Comparable spec computers that came out around the same time as the 2.7GHz have depths of between 160mm and 620mm, and the average depth is 350mm. The Apple 2.7GHz is fairly shallow (only 167 millimeters) compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the 2.7GHz.

Chart Edit

1 Reason Against

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

At only 256 gigabytes, the Apple 2.7GHz has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the 2.7GHz. The smallest total storage capacity of personal computers of a similar type and age to the 2.7GHz is 180GB, the biggest is 8.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 800GB.

If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the DELL Precision T5610[plb_3364976_price] (500GB).
