8 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent PC Reviews

Apple has excellent average reviews for its many processor core personal computers as well as across its entire desktop computer range compared to other manufacturers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many similar spec desktop computers that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The storage speed of this personal computer is Flash, which is the most commonly found storage medium on personal computers that have been around for more than two years. 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.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed

Desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Mac Pro Late 2013 have processor clock speeds of between 1.6GHz and 3.7GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.9GHz. At 3.5 gigahertz, the Apple Mac Pro Late 2013 has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Total Storage Capacity

Across all the computers of a comparable age and spec to the Mac Pro Late 2013 the total storage capacity range from 180GB to 8.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 800GB. The Apple Mac Pro Late 2013 has one of the bigger total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) amongst many processor core personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Gold EPEAT Compliance

This personal computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many many processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency

The Mac Pro Late 2013 has one of the faster maximum turbo frequencies (3.9 gigahertz) amongst PCs of this age. The slowest maximum turbo frequency of many processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago is 2.5GHz, the fastest is 4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.5GHz.

Chart Edit

Supports One Case Placement

The number of placements supported by the Mac Pro Late 2013 is more than most many processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it. This desktop computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most commonly supported case placement supported by personal computers of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

2 Reasons Against

Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

Many processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the Mac Pro Late 2013 have max internal memory supported processors of between 64GB and 770GB. At only 256 gigabytes, the Mac Pro Late 2013 has a fairly small max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Mac Pro Late 2013.

Chart Edit

Very Small Processor Cache

The processor caches of many processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Mac Pro Late 2013 range from 12MB to 30MB. With a processor cache of only 12 megabytes, the Mac Pro Late 2013 has a quite small processor cache compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that were launched around the same time as the Mac Pro Late 2013.
