7 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

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

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many many processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is Flash, which is typical of many PCs of a comparable type and age to 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.

If the storage speed of this PC is too slow for you then you might want to look at the HP Z440 MT[plb_2720829_price] (SSD), or the Lenovo P900[plb_2969003_price] (SSD) which is also cheaper.

24 Processor Threads

Most of the other PCs that were launched more than a year ago only have between 6 and 23 processor threads, however the Apple Mac Pro has 24 processor threads.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Processor Cache

The Mac Pro has one of the bigger processor caches (30 megabytes) amongst many processor core personal computers of this age. The processor caches of desktop computers of this type and age range from 12MB to 30MB.

Chart Edit

Two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) Ports

Most of the other PCs that are a similar age to the Mac Pro only have one Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) port, however the Mac Pro has two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports.

Chart Edit

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 many processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the Mac Pro. The discrete graphics adapter memory of similar spec personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Mac Pro range from 1GB to 8.2GB.

Chart Edit

1 Reason Against

Very Small Internal Memory

The Apple Mac Pro has a fairly small internal memory (only 12 gigabytes) compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Mac Pro. Many processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the Mac Pro have internal memory of between 8GB and 64GB, and the average internal memory is 24GB.

Computers with a bigger internal memory that might be worth considering include the HP Z440 MT[plb_2720829_price] (16GB and cheaper).

3 Other reasons to consider the Apple Mac Pro

Released Over Two Years Ago

This Apple personal computer has been on the market for over two years.

Average Processor Clock Speed
