11 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent Reviews for Its Personal Computers

Many processor core computers built by Apple have excellent ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all computers (not just many processor core computers) and found that Apple also has excellent ratings across its entire range.

Just Released Four Months Ago

The Mac Pro was only relased by Apple four months ago.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on many processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

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. The worst storage speed of all many processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Mac Pro is HDD and the best is SSD.

Personal computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth considering include the HP Z640 ($1,399.00) (SSD) which is also cheaper.

Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed

At 3.5 gigahertz, the Mac Pro has a fairly fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other many processor core computers that were launched in the last year. The processor clock speeds of recently released many processor core computers range from 1.6GHz to 3.6GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.9GHz.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency

The slowest maximum turbo frequency of many processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Mac Pro is 2.7GHz and the fastest is 4GHz. With a maximum turbo frequency of 3.9 gigahertz, the Apple Mac Pro has a quite fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other newly released many processor core computers.

Chart Edit

Supports One Case Placement

The Apple Mac Pro has a greater number of placements than most latest comparable spec desktop computers. This personal computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by similar spec desktop computers that were released in the last year.

Chart Edit

Very Short

The Mac Pro is one of the shorter PCs that are a similar age to the Mac Pro (only 251 millimeters) amongst personal computers of this age. Across all the recently released comparable spec PCs the heights range from 250mm to 570mm, and the average height is 390mm.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

With a width of only 167 millimeters, the Mac Pro is one of the narrower many processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the Mac Pro amongst similar spec personal computers of this age. The narrowest comparable spec computer that is a similar age to the Mac Pro is 160mm wide and the widest is 640mm.

Chart Edit

Very Light

With a weight of only 5 kilograms, the Mac Pro is quite light compared to most of the other desktop computers that were launched in the last year. The average weight of PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Mac Pro is 11kg.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

The average depth of new personal computers is 390mm. The Mac Pro is one of the shallower newly released similar spec personal computers (only 167 millimeters) amongst many processor core computers of this age.

Chart Edit

10 Reasons Against

Very Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

The memory clock speeds supported by processors of similar spec desktop computers that came out in the last 12 months range from 800MHz to 1,600MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,400MHz. With a memory clock speed supported by processor of only 800 megahertz, the Apple Mac Pro has a quite slow memory clock speed supported by processor compared to most of the other new many processor core computers.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

Similar spec desktop computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Mac Pro have total storage capacity of between 250GB and 2.2TB. The Apple Mac Pro has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) amongst many processor core computers of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 256GB total storage capacity computers currently available including cheaper PCs such as the HP Z640 ($1,399.00).

Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

The Mac Pro has one of the smaller max internal memory supported processors (only 256 gigabytes) amongst many processor core computers of this age. The max internal memory supported processors of similar spec personal computers that were released in the last 12 months range from 64GB to 1.6TB.

Chart Edit

Very Small Internal Memory

The average internal memory of desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Mac Pro is 25GB. At only 12 gigabytes, the Mac Pro has a quite small internal memory compared to most of the other newly released many processor core computers.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

The average max memory bandwidth supported processor of latest many processor core computers is 66GB/s, and the max memory bandwidth supported processor range from 42GB/s to 77GB/s. With a max memory bandwidth supported processor of only 59.7 gigabytes per second, the Mac Pro has one of the slower max memory bandwidth supported processor amongst similar spec personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Only One CPU Configuration (max)

The Mac Pro is a computer that takes one CPUs configuration (max).

Chart Edit

Only One Storage Drive

The Apple Mac Pro is a one storage drive desktop computer.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed

At only 1,866 megahertz, the Mac Pro has a fairly slow memory clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Mac Pro. The average memory clock speed of personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Mac Pro is 2,100MHz, and the memory clock speeds range from 1,300MHz to 2,400MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Processor Cache

The Apple Mac Pro has a fairly small processor cache (only 12 megabytes) compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Mac Pro. The smallest processor cache of latest PCs is 12MB and the biggest is 35MB.

Chart Edit

Only 12 Processor Threads

The Mac Pro is a 12 processor thread desktop computer. Most of the other many processor core computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Mac Pro have between 6 and 27 processor threads.
