23 Reasons For

Apple Personal Computers Have Excellent Reviews

Apple is one of the top rated PC brands according to average user and expert review score data that we have collected for all computers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on desktop computers of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Very Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

When compared to other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Mac Pro that we have assessed, the Mac Pro's discrete graphics adapter memory of 6,144 gigabytes is one of the biggest. The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of personal computers that are a comparable age to the Mac Pro is 1GB and the biggest is 8.2TB.

Chart Edit

Very Fast Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

At 59.7 gigabytes per second, the Apple Mac Pro has a very fast max memory bandwidth supported processor compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable age and type to the Mac Pro. PCs that were launched around the same time as the Mac Pro have max memory bandwidth supported processor of between 10GB/s and 68GB/s, and the average max memory bandwidth supported processor is 30GB/s.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

At 256 gigabytes, the Mac Pro has a very big max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and spec. The max internal memory supported processors of medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the Mac Pro range from 2GB to 770GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 65GB.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The Mac Pro has a faster storage speed than most medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago. This Apple desktop computer has a Flash storage medium, whereas most medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it have an HDD storage medium. 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. Across all desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the Mac Pro the worst storage speed is HDD and the best is SSD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other Flash desktop computers currently available including the MeLE PCG09 which has better reviews.

Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed

The Apple Mac Pro has one of the faster processor clock speeds (3.7 gigahertz) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The processor clock speeds of medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than a year ago range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3.7GHz processor clock speed personal computers currently available including the HP 440 MT which has better reviews.

Quite Big Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 32 gigabytes, the Mac Pro's internal memory is one of the biggest amongst similar spec desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Mac Pro. The average internal memory of personal computers that were released one year ago is 8.3GB, and the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 32GB memory desktop computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the DELL 8900.
