10 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent PC Reviews

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

Only Released Four Months Ago

This personal computer is one of the latest PCs to be released. This means it is likely to use better technology than some of the older PCs.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many recently released many processor core computers.

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. Across all new desktop computers the storage speed ranges from HDD (worst) to SSD (best).

We compared this personal computer to all the other Flash desktop computers and we think the Apple Mac Pro ($2,859.00) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you want a desktop computer with a faster storage speed then you might also want to consider the Z440 ($1,994.99) (SSD), or the Z640 ($1,399.00) (SSD) both from HP which is also cheaper.

Very Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency

Across all the many processor core computers that were launched in the last year the maximum turbo frequencies range from 2.7GHz to 4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.4GHz. With a maximum turbo frequency of 3.9 gigahertz, the Mac Pro has a very fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other latest many processor core computers.

Chart Edit

Supports One Case Placement

The Mac Pro has a greater number of placements than most latest many processor core computers. This Apple desktop computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most commonly supported case placement supported by many processor core computers that were released around the same time as the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

Very Short

Across all the similar spec PCs that came out around the same time as the Mac Pro the heights range from 250mm to 570mm. The Apple Mac Pro is one of the shorter new similar spec desktop computers (only 251.5 millimeters) amongst many processor core computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

The average width of new many processor core computers is 190mm, and the widths range from 160mm to 640mm. At only 167.6 millimeters, the Apple Mac Pro is fairly narrow compared to most of the other PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Latest many processor core computers have weights of between 250g and 28kg, and the average weight is 11kg. The Mac Pro is one of the lighter new many processor core computers (only 5 kilograms) amongst many processor core computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

At only 167.6 millimeters, the Mac Pro is fairly shallow compared to most of the other latest many processor core computers. The shallowest recently released comparable spec desktop computer is 160mm deep and the deepest is 550mm.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

Across all the latest similar spec personal computers the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 800MHz to 1,600MHz. When compared to other many processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the Mac Pro, the memory clock speed supported by processor of the Mac Pro of only 800 megahertz is one of the slowest.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

Across all the many processor core computers that were released in the last 12 months the total storage capacity range from 250GB to 2.2TB. At only 256 gigabytes, the Mac Pro has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Mac Pro.

We compared all the other 256GB total storage capacity personal computers to this personal computer and we think cheaper desktop computers such as the HP Z640 ($1,399.00), and the Apple Mac Pro ($2,859.00) is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

Similar spec desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Mac Pro have max internal memory supported processors of between 64GB and 1.6TB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 890GB. The Mac Pro has a quite small max internal memory supported processor (only 256 gigabytes) compared to most of the other recently released desktop computers.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

The Apple Mac Pro has a quite slow max memory bandwidth supported processor (only 59.7 gigabytes per second) compared to most of the other recently released many processor core computers. The max memory bandwidth supported processor of newly released many processor core computers range from 42GB/s to 77GB/s.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed

The slowest memory clock speed of many processor core computers that were released in the last 12 months is 1,300MHz, the fastest is 2,400MHz, and the average memory clock speed is 2,100MHz. At only 1,866 megahertz, the Mac Pro has a fairly slow memory clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers that are a similar age to the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Processor Cache

The average processor cache of latest many processor core computers is 20MB. When compared to other many processor core computers that are a similar age to the Mac Pro that we have assessed the processor cache of, the Apple Mac Pro's processor cache of only 12 megabytes is one of the smallest.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the Apple Mac Pro

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 3.5 gigahertz, the Mac Pro has a fairly average processor clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers that have been available for the last year.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3.5GHz processor clock speed desktop computers currently available including the HP Z440 ($1,994.99), or the Apple Mac Pro ($2,859.00) which is cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 16 gigabytes, the Mac Pro has a fairly standard internal memory compared to most of the other computers that came out in the last year.

We compared this computer to all the other 16GB memory desktop computers and we think the Z440 ($1,994.99), and the Z640 ($1,399.00) both from HP which is cheaper is also worth considering.
