14 Reasons For
Apple Has Excellent Personal Computer Reviews
Apple few processor core PCs have excellent reviews on average and across all computers Apple is one of the leading manufacturers.
Just Released Five Months Ago
This Apple PC was only released five months ago, so it is likely to have better features than some of the older personal computers.
Four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The Apple 2.8GHz is a four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port PC.
Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity
The smallest total storage capacity of similar spec computers that have been around for the last year is 16GB, the biggest is 2TB, and the average total storage capacity is 550GB. With a total storage capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the Apple 2.8GHz has one of the biggest total storage capacity amongst similar spec PCs of this age.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 1TB total storage capacity personal computers currently available including the Alienware Alpha (£515.80) which is cheaper.
Quite Big Internal Memory
The Apple 2.8GHz has a fairly big internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other recently released comparable spec desktop computers. The internal memory of few processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as the 2.8GHz range from 2GB to 8GB.
We compared all the other 8GB memory computers to this PC and we think cheaper computers such as the HP Chromebox (£644.98), and the Alienware Alpha (£515.80) is also worth considering.
Fusion Drive Storage Medium
The Apple 2.8GHz has a Fusion Drive storage medium which is faster than the Flash storage medium found on most similar spec personal computers that were launched in the last year. A fusion drive uses a combination of a traditional Hard Disk Drive (HDD) and a Solid State Drive (SSD). The bulk of the storage is on the HDD which is cheaper, but items which are accessed frequently are stored in the SSD to improve performance. The worst storage speed of all latest comparable spec desktop computers is HDD and the best is SSD.
+9 More reasons for
Supports One Case Placement
The Apple 2.8GHz has a greater number of placements than most comparable spec desktop computers that came out in the last year. The most commonly supported case placement is Vertical, but this case placement is not supported by this personal computer. The case placements Horizontal are also supported by this desktop computer.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on latest few processor core PCs.
Four USB 3.0 Ports
The Apple 2.8GHz is a four USB 3.0 port personal computer.
Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
The maximum turbo frequencies of recently released few processor core PCs range from 2GHz to 4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 2.6GHz. The Apple 2.8GHz has a quite fast maximum turbo frequency (3.3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other new few processor core PCs.
LPDDR3-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
The Apple 2.8GHz has an LPDDR3-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than the DDR2-SDRAM internal memory type found on most recently released comparable spec desktop computers.
An LPDDR3-SDRAM internal memory type is actually the best internal memory type across all comparable spec personal computers that were launched around the same time as the 2.8GHz.
A DDR-SDRAM internal memory type is the worst internal memory type amongst similar types of computer.
Has One Memory Slot
The Apple 2.8GHz has a greater number of memory slots than most few processor core PCs that were launched in the last year. The most commonly found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this desktop computer.
Computers that have been available for the last year have heights of between 27mm and 500mm, and the average height is 220mm. At only 36 millimeters, the Apple 2.8GHz is quite short compared to most of the other PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the 2.8GHz.
The Apple 2.8GHz is one of the lighter PCs that were launched in the last 12 months (only 1.2 kilograms) amongst desktop computers of this age. Few processor core PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the 2.8GHz have weights of between 360g and 15kg.
2 Reasons Against
We think this desktop computer looks expensive compared to other latest similar spec computers. The price range of latest similar spec computers is from £99 to £907.
Only Supports One Compatible Memory Card
The number of compatible memory card supported by the Apple 2.8GHz is more than most latest few processor core PCs. The most commonly supported compatible memory card is SD, but this compatible memory card is not supported by this computer. The compatible memory cards SDXC are also supported by this desktop computer.
2 Other reasons to consider the Apple 2.8GHz
Price Increase of £17.76
In the last month the price of the 2.8GHz has increased by £17.76.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 2.8 gigahertz, the Apple 2.8GHz has a fairly typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers that were released around the same time as the 2.8GHz.
If this personal computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to look at the Alienware Alpha (£515.80) (3.2GHz and cheaper), or the HP 600 G1 Mini (£531.36) (3.3GHz and cheaper).
