10 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent Computer Reviews

Personal computers built by Apple generally have excellent reviews compared to other brands.

SSD Storage Medium

The Mac Mini Late 2012 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most desktop computers that came out more than two years ago. Most medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) 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.

This personal computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed across all medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than two years.

The worst storage speed amongst comparable types of personal computer is HDD.

We compared this computer to all the other SSD computers and we think the DELL Precision T1700 SFF which has better reviews is also worth considering.
