9 Reasons For
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many few processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to it.
Fairly Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Across all the PCs of this age and spec the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1GB to 16GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 3.1GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of 16 gigabytes, the Fujitsu Q520 has a quite big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other computers of a comparable type and age to the Q520.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of computers of this type and age range from 750MHz to 1,200MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,150 megahertz, the Fujitsu Q520 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other PCs that have been available for around the same time as the Q520.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on computers of this type and age.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on few processor core computers that came out more than a year ago.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This personal computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many computers of a similar spec and age to it.
+4 More reasons for
Supports Two Compatible Memory Cards
The number of compatible memory card supported by the Fujitsu Q520 is more than most desktop computers of this age and type. This Fujitsu computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most commonly supported compatible memory card supported by similar spec computers that were released around the same time as the Q520. The compatible memory card "MMC" is also supported by this desktop computer.
5.1 Audio Output Channel
This computer has a 5.1 audio output channel, which is the most frequently found audio output channel on few processor core computers that were released around the same time as it.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Fujitsu Q520 is more than most few processor core computers that were launched around the same time as it. The most commonly found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this desktop computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this computer.
5 Reasons Against
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of only 200 megahertz, the Fujitsu Q520 has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter base frequencies amongst few processor core computers of this age. The slowest on-board graphics adapter base frequency of similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to the Q520 is 100MHz and the fastest is 690MHz.
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The Fujitsu Q520 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port computer.
We think this desktop computer looks expensive compared to other computers of this age and spec. The price range of computers of this age and spec is from £99 to £834.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many few processor core computers that have been available for a similar 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.
At only 500 gigabytes, the Fujitsu Q520 has a fairly small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Q520. Few processor core computers that are a similar age to the Q520 have hard drive capacity of between 320GB and 2TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 650GB.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 500GB hard drive capacity computers currently available including cheaper desktop computers such as the ProDesk 600 G1 Mini[pl_2409261_price], or the ProDesk 600[pl_2745142_price] both from HP or the Acer Veriton X4630G[plb_2997080_price].
If you want a desktop computer with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might want to consider the Apple 2.6GHz[plb_3339992_price] (1TB) which also has a higher rating.
4 Other reasons to consider the Fujitsu Q520
Released Over a Year Ago
Fujitsu released the Q520 over a year ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.2 gigahertz, the Fujitsu Q520 has a fairly average processor clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to the Q520.
Computers with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth considering include the Asus M32AD[plb_3097814_price] (3.7GHz), or the HP 800 G2[plb_3268034_price] (3.7GHz) which is also cheaper.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the Fujitsu Q520 has a pretty typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers of a comparable type and age to the Q520.
There are a number of alternative 500GB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available which you might also want to consider including the ProDesk 600 G1 Mini[pl_2409261_price], or the ProDesk 600[pl_2745142_price] both from HP or the Acer Veriton X4630G[plb_2997080_price] which is cheaper.
If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the Asus M32AD[plb_3097814_price] (1TB and cheaper) or the Apple 2.6GHz[plb_3339992_price] (1TB and higher rated).
+2 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 4 gigabytes, the Fujitsu Q520 has a relatively standard internal memory compared to most of the other few processor core computers that were launched more than a year ago.
If this computer internal memory is too small for you then you might want to consider the Asus M32AD[plb_3097814_price] (6GB and cheaper); or the Apple 2.6GHz[plb_3339992_price] (8GB and higher rated).
