Acer is one of the superior computer manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and owners, and Acer also has good ratings for its few processor core PCs.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on desktop computers that are a comparable age to it.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to it.
Very Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of desktop computers of this age and spec is 790MHz and the fastest is 1,200MHz. The Acer Aspire TC-605 has one of the fastest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (1,150 megahertz) amongst few processor core PCs of this age.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
At 3.6 gigahertz, the Acer Aspire TC-605 has a fairly fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that are a similar age to the Aspire TC-605. The average processor clock speed of PCs that were released more than two years ago is 2.8GHz.
Fairly Big Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the Acer Aspire TC-605 has a fairly big hard drive capacity compared to most of the other similar spec computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Aspire TC-605. The hard drive capacity of few processor core PCs that were released more than two years ago range from 250GB to 2TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 610GB.
+4 More reasons for
Quite Big Total Storage Capacity
The Acer Aspire TC-605 has a fairly big total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the Aspire TC-605. Few processor core PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Aspire TC-605 have total storage capacity of between 4GB and 2TB.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many few processor core PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
DDR3-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This desktop computer has a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type, which is the most commonly found internal memory type on desktop computers that came out more than two years ago.
5 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The Acer Aspire TC-605 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port computer. Most of the other computers of a similar type and age to the Aspire TC-605 have between one and five USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
The Acer Aspire TC-605 is a two USB 3.0 port PC.
Only One PCI Express X1 Slot
The Aspire TC-605 is a one PCI Express x1 slot computer.
Only One Mini PCI Express Slot
The Aspire TC-605 is a one mini PCI Express slot PC. Most of the other few processor core PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Aspire TC-605 have one mini PCI Express slot.
+2 More reasons against
When compared to other computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Aspire TC-605 that we have checked, the width of the Aspire TC-605 of 381 millimeters is one of the widest. The widths of few processor core PCs that were released more than two years ago range from 3.4mm to 390mm, and the average width is 170mm.
3 Other reasons to consider the Acer Aspire TC-605
Released Over Two Years Ago
This computer has been on the market for over two years.
Average Internal Memory
The Acer Aspire TC-605 has a fairly standard internal memory (4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that were released around the same time as the Aspire TC-605.
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many similar spec desktop computers that were released around the same time as 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.
