22 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent Reviews for Its Computers

Apple is one of the best desktop computer manufacturers according to average owner and expert review score data that we have collected for all computers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

At 59.7 gigabytes per second, the Mac Pro has a fairly fast max memory bandwidth supported processor compared to most of the other personal computers of this spec and age. The slowest max memory bandwidth supported processor of PCs of a comparable age and spec to the Mac Pro is 10GB/s and the fastest is 68GB/s.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

With a max internal memory supported processor of 256 gigabytes, the Apple Mac Pro has one of the bigger max internal memory supported processors amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The smallest max internal memory supported processor of personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Mac Pro is 2GB, the biggest is 770GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 88GB.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

The average discrete graphics adapter memory of similar spec personal computers that have been around for more than two years is 2TB, and the discrete graphics adapter memory capacities range from 1GB to 6.2TB. At 3,072 gigabytes, the Mac Pro has a fairly big discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The Mac Pro has a faster storage speed than most desktop computers of a similar spec and age to it. This Apple PC has a Flash storage medium, whereas most medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar time to it have an HDD 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 personal computers that were launched more than two years ago the best storage speed is SSD and the worst is HDD.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed

Across all the computers that were released more than two years ago the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 4.1GHz. With a processor clock speed of 3.7 gigahertz, the Mac Pro has one of the faster processor clock speeds amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 16 gigabytes, the Mac Pro has one of the bigger internal memory amongst desktop computers of this age. Across all the desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as the Mac Pro the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB.

Chart Edit

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on computers of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Gold EPEAT Compliance

This computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most commonly found EPEAT compliance on medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) Ports

Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Mac Pro only have one Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) port, however the Mac Pro has two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports.

Chart Edit

10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology

This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many comparable spec PCs that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Two Discrete Graphics Adapters

The Mac Pro has more discrete graphics adapters than most of the computers of this age and spec. Most of the medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Mac Pro only have one discrete graphics adapter, however this computer has two discrete graphics adapters.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory

The average maximum internal memory of medium processor core personal computers that came out more than two years ago is 32GB, and the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 260GB. The Mac Pro has one of the bigger maximum internal memory (64 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Processor Cache

With a processor cache of 10 megabytes, the Mac Pro has a fairly big processor cache compared to most of the other PCs that were released more than two years ago. The average processor cache of PCs of this type and age is 6.8MB.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed

The slowest memory clock speed of medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Mac Pro is 1,000MHz, the fastest is 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speed is 1,600MHz. With a memory clock speed of 1,866 megahertz, the Mac Pro has a fairly fast memory clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar type and age to the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

Supports One Case Placement

The number of placements supported by the Mac Pro is more than most similar spec computers that were released around the same time as it. This desktop computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most commonly supported case placement supported by computers of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the Mac Pro is more than most PCs of a similar type and age to it. This Apple desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

Has One Cable Included

The number of included cables found on the Apple Mac Pro is more than most PCs that have been around for around the same time as it. This computer has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on desktop computers of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type

This computer supports a GDDR5 discrete graphics memory type, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Light

The lightest medium processor core desktop computer that has been around for around the same time as the Mac Pro is 250g heavy and the heaviest is 24kg. At only 5 kilograms, the Apple Mac Pro is fairly light compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

Personal computers of this type and age have depths of between 33mm and 690mm, and the average depth is 360mm. At only 167 millimeters, the Mac Pro is fairly shallow compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

1 Reason Against

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

Personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Mac Pro have memory clock speeds supported by processors of between 800MHz and 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,300MHz. With a memory clock speed supported by processor of only 800 megahertz, the Mac Pro has a very slow memory clock speed supported by processor compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the Apple Mac Pro

Released Over Two Years Ago

Apple released the Mac Pro over two years ago.

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 1,000 gigabyte, the Apple Mac Pro has a fairly typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other PCs of this age and type.
