11 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent Reviews for Its PCs

We calculated the average ratings for all Apple computers and also specifically for Apple many processor core personal computers and found that in both cases Apple had excellent ratings compared to other brands.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many desktop computers of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is Flash, which is the most frequently found storage medium on many processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time 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.

If you would prefer a computer with a faster storage speed then you might want to consider the Z640[pl_2470063_price] (SSD), or the Z640[pl_2520388_price] (SSD) both from HP or the Lenovo P900[plb_2535697_price] (SSD) which is also cheaper.
