9 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent Reviews for Its PCs

We checked 1,174 owner and expert reviews for Apple personal computers and found that on average Apple has excellent reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Apple has excellent reviews specifically for its many processor core personal computers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on comparable spec computers that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Two CPUs Configuration (max)

The Mac Pro takes more CPUs configuration (max) than most of the many processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago. Most of the similar spec computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Mac Pro only take one CPU configuration (max), however this computer takes two CPUs configuration (max).

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The storage speed of this desktop computer is Flash, which is the most commonly found storage medium on personal computers of this age and type. 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 think you might also be interested in some of the alternative Flash desktop computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the Apple Mac Pro Late 2013[plb_2110469_price].

If the storage speed of this personal computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the HP Z440 MT[plb_2720829_price] (SSD), or the Lenovo Thinkstation P500[plb_2765684_price] (SSD).
