6 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent PC Reviews

Apple is one of the best personal computer brands according to average reviews from owners and experts, and Apple also has excellent reviews for its many processor core computers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many personal computers of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The storage speed of this desktop computer is Flash, which is the most frequently found storage medium on desktop 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.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative Flash computers currently available including the Apple Mac Pro Late 2013[plb_2110469_price] which has better reviews.

If you are looking for a computer with a faster storage speed then you might also want to look at the HP Z640[plb_2520388_price] (SSD).
