4 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

On average Apple many processor cores desktop computers have excellent reviews as do all personal computers produced by Apple.

Fairly Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

The Apple 2.7GHz has one of the bigger discrete graphics adapter memorys (6,144 gigabytes) amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age. Across all the many processor cores desktop computers that have been on the market for more than two years the discrete graphics adapter memorys range from 3GB to 8.2TB.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Media

The storage speed of this personal computer is Flash, which is typical of many computers of a comparable age and type 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 the storage speed of this many processor cores desktop computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the HP Z640 (SSD) which also has a higher rating.

Fairly Big Processor Cache

Across all the many processor cores desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as the 2.7GHz the processor caches range from 12MB to 30MB, and the average processor cache is 21MB. With a processor cache of 30 megabytes, the Apple 2.7GHz has one of the bigger processor caches amongst desktop computers of this age.

Chart Edit

2 Reasons Against

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

The smallest total storage capacity of many processor cores desktop computers that are a similar age to the 2.7GHz is 180GB and the biggest is 8.3TB. At only 256 gigabytes, the Apple 2.7GHz has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar age and type to the 2.7GHz.

If this personal computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Apple ME253 (£2,999.00) (512GB).

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed

The average memory clock speed of many processor cores desktop computers that have been on the market for more than two years is 1,900MHz. At only 1,866 megahertz, the Apple 2.7GHz has a quite slow memory clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that have been around for around the same time as the 2.7GHz.

3 Other reasons to consider the Apple 2.7GHz

Released Over Two Years Ago

This computer was released over two years ago.

Average Internal Memory

At 16 gigabytes, the Apple 2.7GHz has a relatively standard internal memory compared to most of the other many processor cores desktop computers that have been on the market for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Average Processor Frequency

With a processor frequency of 2.7 gigahertz, the Apple 2.7GHz has a fairly average processor frequency compared to most of the other PCs of a similar age and spec to the 2.7GHz.

If you want a PC with a faster processor frequency then you might also want to consider the ME253 (£2,999.00) (3GHz), or the Mac Pro (3GHz) both from Apple.
