19 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Excellent

Based on two expert reviews from sites including Techradar and techradar.com/au/ the average expert rating of this Fujitsu personal computer is 90%. This means that desktop computer experts think this computer is one of the very best desktop computers that were released more than a year ago.

Good Size

One person wrote in their reviews that it was compact.

Good Product Quality

One customer who purchased the Fujitsu W530 said that it was good quality. Techradar said “SSD boot disk plus good quality keyboard and mouse” in their review of this PC.

Reasonably Priced

One Fujitsu W530 reviewer considered that this PC was good value for money. Techradar.com wrote “A compact and affordable entry-level workstation designed to bridge the gap between high-end PCs” in their Fujitsu W530 review.

Very Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency (max)

At 1,200 megahertz, the Fujitsu W530 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max) compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar age and spec to the W530. Across all the medium processor cores personal computers that were released one year ago the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max)s range from 500MHz to 1,300MHz.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

With a discrete graphics adapter memory of 2,048 gigabytes, the Fujitsu W530 has one of the bigger discrete graphics adapter memorys amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age. The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of PCs that were released more than a year ago is 1GB and the biggest is 8.2TB.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Processor Frequency

Medium processor cores personal computers that are a similar age to the W530 have processor frequencys of between 1.3GHz and 4GHz, and the average processor frequency is 3.1GHz. The Fujitsu W530 has a quite fast processor frequency (3.6 gigahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor cores personal computers that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity

At 1,000 gigabyte, the Fujitsu W530 has a quite big total storage capacity compared to most of the other PCs of a similar age and spec to the W530. Desktop computers that were released one year ago have total storage capacitys of between 4GB and 3.6TB, and the average total storage capacity is 810GB.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 1TB total storage capacity PCs currently available including because of it's better review score, the DELL PowerEdge T20[plb_2747980_price], or the MSI Nightblade B85C[plb_2749742_price].

If this computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Lenovo Thinkstation P500[plb_3209708_price] (1.3TB), or the DELL 8900[plb_3251718_price] (2TB) which is also higher rated.
