13 Reasons For
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as it.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,200 megahertz, the Celsius W530 has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the Fujitsu Celsius W530 has a fairly big internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than a year. Desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as the Celsius W530 have internal memory of between 2GB and 64GB.
There are a number of alternative 8GB memory personal computers currently available that you might also want to look at including the Alienware X51[plb_2501842_price] which is cheaper.
If you are looking for a personal computer with a bigger internal memory then you might also want to consider the Acer Aspire X3-710[plb_3192159_price] (12GB and cheaper).
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on comparable spec PCs that have been available for more than a year.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
+8 More reasons for
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This desktop computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most frequently found EPEAT compliance on comparable spec computers that are a similar age to it.
Four 3.5" Bays
The Fujitsu Celsius W530 is a four 3.5" bay personal computer.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The Celsius W530 is a six USB 2.0 port desktop computer. Most of the other computers that came out more than a year ago have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.
Two PCI Express X1 Slots
The Celsius W530 is a two PCI Express x1 slot desktop computer.
Supports One Case Placement
The Celsius W530 has a greater number of placements than most desktop computers of this age and spec. This personal computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most commonly supported case placement supported by personal computers of a comparable age and type to the Celsius W530.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Celsius W530 is more than most computers of a similar age and type to it. This personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on desktop computers of this age and spec.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many similar spec computers that were launched more than a year ago.
6 Reasons Against
Recent Price Increase of £35.06
In the last 52 days the Celsius W530 has increased in price by £35.06.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is Hybrid-HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to it. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
Quite Slow Hard Drive Speed
The hard drive speeds of desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the Celsius W530 range from 5,400 RPM to 7,200 RPM, and the average hard drive speed is 7,100 RPM. With a hard drive speed of only 5,400 revolutions per minute, the Fujitsu Celsius W530 has a quite slow hard drive speed compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar type and age to the Celsius W530.
Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of personal computers of a comparable age and type to the Celsius W530 is 4.9MB and the biggest is 8.2GB. When compared to other PCs that were released one year ago, the Fujitsu Celsius W530's discrete graphics adapter memory of only 1,024 megabyte is one of the smallest.
+3 More reasons against
Very Small Hybrid Hard Drive (H-HDD) Capacity
The Celsius W530 has one of the smaller hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacities (only 500 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacities of medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago range from 500GB to 2TB.
The average weight of comparable spec PCs that were released more than a year ago is 7.5kg, and the weights range from 38g to 100kg. At 11 kilograms, the Celsius W530 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Celsius W530.
4 Other reasons to consider the Fujitsu Celsius W530
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when Fujitsu released the Celsius W530.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.5 gigahertz, the Celsius W530 has a relatively standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other computers of a comparable age and spec to the Celsius W530.
If you are looking for a personal computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the HP Z230[plb_2735174_price] (3.6GHz and cheaper), or the Asus G20AJ[plb_2976890_price] (3.6GHz and cheaper).
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the Celsius W530 has a fairly standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Celsius W530.
It may also be worth considering one of the other 500GB total storage capacity PCs currently available including the Fujitsu Esprimo E920[plb_2399576_price] which is cheaper.
Computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth looking at include the Z230[pl_2735174_price] (1TB), or the 600 G2[pl_3756858_price] (1TB) both from HP which is also cheaper.
+2 Other reasons
Average Hard Drive Capacity
