Fairly Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

Computers of a comparable age and spec to the Mac Pro have discrete graphics adapter memory capacities of between 3GB and 8.2TB. The Mac Pro has a quite big discrete graphics adapter memory (6,144 gigabytes) compared to most of the other computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The storage speed of this desktop computer is Flash, which is the most commonly found storage medium on many processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as 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.

Fairly Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

At 6,144 megabytes, the Mac Pro has a fairly big discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other similar spec computers that have been around for around the same time as the Mac Pro. Similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to the Mac Pro have discrete graphics adapter memory of between 510MB and 8.2GB.

Chart Edit

Supports One Case Placement

The number of placements supported by the Mac Pro is more than most many processor core computers that have been around for more than two years. This personal computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most commonly supported case placement supported by desktop computers of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Short

Across all the comparable spec computers that have been around for a similar time to the Mac Pro the heights range from 250mm to 580mm. With a height of only 251 millimeters, the Apple Mac Pro is very short compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that were launched around the same time as the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The narrowest many processor core computer that came out around the same time as the Mac Pro is 160mm wide, the widest is 450mm, and the average width is 180mm. At only 167 millimeters, the Mac Pro is very narrow compared to most of the other personal computers of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Shallow

The shallowest many processor core computer that has been available for a comparable time to the Mac Pro is 160mm deep, the deepest is 620mm, and the average depth is 350mm. When compared to other PCs of this spec and age, the depth of the Mac Pro of only 167 millimeters is one of the shallowest.

Chart Edit

Light

With a weight of only 251.5 grams, the Apple Mac Pro is very light compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that were released around the same time as the Mac Pro. The lightest desktop computer that has been around for more than two years is 250g heavy and the heaviest is 30kg.

Chart Edit

2 Reasons Against

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

The Mac Pro has a quite small total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that came out around the same time as the Mac Pro. The total storage capacity of comparable spec desktop computers that were released around the same time as the Mac Pro range from 180GB to 8.3TB.

Chart Edit

Only IEEE 802.11a WiFi Standard

This personal computer supports IEEE 802.11a, IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11g, IEEE 802.11n, IEEE 802.11a, IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11g, IEEE 802.11n, 802.11a, 802.11ac, 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n, IEEE 802.11a, IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11g, IEEE 802.11n, 802.11a, 802.11ac, 802.11b and 802.11g WiFi standards, which is typical of many similar spec computers that came out around the same time as it.
