6 Reasons For

Apple Personal Computers Have Excellent Reviews

Apple has excellent average ratings for its many processor core personal computers as well as across its entire computer range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many many processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The storage speed of this personal computer is Flash, which is typical of many PCs of a similar type and age to it. 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.

We compared this PC to all the other Flash computers and we think because of it's better review score, the Apple Mac Pro Late 2013 (£3,750.00) is also worth considering.

If the storage speed of this personal computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the HP Z440 MT (£1,769.91) (SSD), or the Lenovo Thinkstation P500 (£1,623.12) (SSD).

24 Processor Threads

Most of the other computers that were launched more than a year ago only have between 6 and 23 processor threads, however the Mac Pro has 24 processor threads.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Processor Cache

The smallest processor cache of PCs of this type and age is 12MB, the biggest is 30MB, and the average processor cache is 20MB. The Mac Pro has a fairly big processor cache (30 megabytes) compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

At 6,144 megabytes, the Mac Pro has a quite big discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year. The average discrete graphics adapter memory of desktop computers that came out around the same time as the Mac Pro is 4.9GB.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Very Small Internal Memory

With an internal memory of only 12 gigabytes, the Mac Pro has one of the smaller internal memory amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age. The internal memory of comparable spec PCs that have been around for more than a year range from 8GB to 64GB.

If this Apple personal computer internal memory is too small for you then you might want to look at the HP Z640 (£1,277.70) (16GB) which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only One Storage Drive

The Apple Mac Pro is a one storage drive computer. Most of the other desktop computers of this age and spec have between one and three storage drives.

Chart Edit

Very Small L3 Cache

The Apple Mac Pro has a fairly small L3 cache (only 10 megabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and type. Many processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Mac Pro have L3 caches of between 10MB and 30MB, and the average L3 cache is 25MB.

Chart Edit

4 Other reasons to consider the Apple Mac Pro

Released Over Two Years Ago

Apple released the Mac Pro over two years ago.

Average Total Storage Capacity

The Apple Mac Pro has a relatively typical total storage capacity (512 gigabytes) compared to most of the other computers of a comparable spec and age to the Mac Pro.

If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the HP Z640 (£1,277.70) (1TB) which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Running Costs Are Average

The Mac Pro has an average running cost of £577 over 4 years based on average energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 24 many processor core personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year.

Chart

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 2.7 gigahertz, the Apple Mac Pro has a pretty average processor clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and spec.

If you would prefer a desktop computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the HP Z420 (3.2GHz and higher rated).
