Chart Edit

Quite Fast Memory Clock Speed

The Apple Mac Pro has one of the faster memory clock speeds (1,866 megahertz) amongst computers of this age. Similar spec PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Mac Pro have memory clock speeds of between 1,000MHz and 2,200MHz.

Chart Edit

Supports One Case Placement

The number of placements supported by the Mac Pro is more than most personal computers of a similar age and spec to it. This personal computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most commonly supported case placement supported by desktop computers of a similar type and age to the Mac Pro.

This Apple PC has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on PCs of a similar type and age to the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the Mac Pro is more than most PCs that have been around for a comparable time to it. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on PCs that are a comparable age to the Mac Pro.

The average total storage capacity of medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the Mac Pro is 710GB, and the total storage capacity range from 32GB to 3TB. The Mac Pro has a quite small total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 256GB total storage capacity personal computers to this computer and we think because of it's better review score, the Fujitsu Esprimo P420[plb_2671736_price] is also worth considering.

PCs with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth considering include the Lenovo M73[plb_3186300_price] (500GB).
