Apple has excellent average reviews for its few processor core computers as well as across its entire PC range compared to other manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on computers that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
Very Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of personal computers of a similar spec and age to the 3.0GHz is 750MHz, the fastest is 1,200MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. When compared to other personal computers that were released one year ago that we have assessed, the Apple 3.0GHz's on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,200 megahertz is one of the fastest.
4.3 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version
This computer supports a 4.3 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is typical of many computers that were released more than a year ago.
Four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most personal computers of this type and age have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the Apple 3.0GHz which has four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Fairly Big Hard Drive Capacity
The average hard drive capacity of similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to the 3.0GHz is 650GB. With a hard drive capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the Apple 3.0GHz has one of the bigger hard drive capacity amongst personal computers of this age.
+14 More reasons for
Quite Big Total Storage Capacity
When compared to other desktop computers of a similar spec and age to the 3.0GHz that we have checked, the Apple 3.0GHz's total storage capacity of 1,000 gigabyte is one of the biggest. The average total storage capacity of comparable spec PCs that were released one year ago is 540GB, and the total storage capacity range from 8GB to 3TB.
Quite Big Internal Memory
Across all the PCs that were launched around the same time as the 3.0GHz the internal memory range from 2GB to 16GB, and the average internal memory is 4.7GB. The Apple 3.0GHz has a fairly big internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other few processor core computers that are a comparable age to the 3.0GHz.
Fusion Drive Storage Medium
The Apple 3.0GHz has a Fusion Drive storage medium which is faster than most personal computers of this type and age. Most comparable spec personal computers that have been available for a similar time to it have an HDD storage medium. A fusion drive uses a combination of a traditional Hard Disk Drive (HDD) and a Solid State Drive (SSD). The bulk of the storage is on the HDD which is cheaper, but items which are accessed frequently are stored in the SSD to improve performance. The storage speed of all desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the 3.0GHz ranges from HDD (worst) to SSD (best).
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on few processor core computers that are a similar age to it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on few processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most commonly found EPEAT compliance on few processor core computers that are a similar age to it.
Supports One Compatible Memory Card
The number of compatible memory card supported by the Apple 3.0GHz is more than most computers of a similar age and spec to it. The most frequently supported compatible memory card is SD, but this compatible memory card is not supported by this personal computer. The compatible memory cards SDXC are also supported by this Apple personal computer.
Four USB 3.0 Ports
Most PCs of a comparable spec and age to the 3.0GHz have between one and five USB 3.0 ports, including the Apple 3.0GHz which has four USB 3.0 ports.
Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
The Apple 3.0GHz has one of the faster maximum turbo frequencies (3.5 gigahertz) amongst similar spec computers of this age. The maximum turbo frequencies of computers of this spec and age range from 2GHz to 5GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 2.9GHz.
Has One Cable Included
The number of included cables found on the Apple 3.0GHz is more than most computers of a similar age and type to it. This Apple desktop computer has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on few processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 3.0GHz.
Very Big Processor Cache
Personal computers that have been available for more than a year have processor caches of between 1MB and 4MB. The Apple 3.0GHz has a very big processor cache (4 megabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers that are a similar age to the 3.0GHz.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Apple 3.0GHz is more than most PCs that were released around the same time as it. The most frequently found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this desktop computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this computer.
The average height of personal computers of a similar age and spec to the 3.0GHz is 190mm. With a height of only 36 millimeters, the Apple 3.0GHz is one of the shorter personal computers that were released around the same time as the 3.0GHz amongst similar spec PCs of this age.
3 Reasons Against
Quite Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
The max internal memory supported processors of personal computers that were launched more than a year ago range from 4GB to 64GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 27GB. The Apple 3.0GHz has a fairly small max internal memory supported processor (only 16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that were released around the same time as the 3.0GHz.
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of only 200 megahertz, the Apple 3.0GHz has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter base frequencies amongst personal computers of this age. Few processor core computers that came out more than a year ago have on-board graphics adapter base frequencies of between 100MHz and 690MHz.
Very Slow Hard Drive Speed
The hard drive speeds of PCs of a comparable age and type to the 3.0GHz range from 5,400 RPM to 7,200 RPM. With a hard drive speed of only 5,400 revolutions per minute, the Apple 3.0GHz has one of the slower hard drive speeds amongst desktop computers of this age.
2 Other reasons to consider the Apple 3.0GHz
