20 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent Reviews for Its Computers

On average PCs produced by Apple are rated 92 out of 100, which is in the top 1% of all desktop computer brands that we have assessed.

Very Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

The discrete graphics adapter memory capacities of medium processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the Mac Pro range from 1GB to 6.2TB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 2TB. When compared to other medium processor core PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the Mac Pro that we have checked, the Mac Pro's discrete graphics adapter memory of 6,144 gigabytes is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The Apple Mac Pro has a Flash storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most medium processor core PCs that came out more than two years ago. 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. Across all similar spec computers that were released more than two years ago the worst storage speed is HDD and the best is SSD.

Desktop computers with a faster storage speed that might also be worth looking at include the Zotac ZBOX CA320 nano (SSD) which also has a higher rating.
