Acer Veriton ES2740g vs. Fujitsu Esprimo P756
Comparison and Differences
Differences between Acer Veriton ES2740g and Fujitsu Esprimo P756
Both models have the same form factor, meaning reoughtly they have the same phiysical size and form.
Usually the newer the generation of the CPU, the better the performance and efficiency is. If your budget allows it, you should go with the Acer Veriton ES2740g as it is running a newer generation CPU. This is not to say that Fujitsu Esprimo P756 is bad - it can still run some powerful CPUs, albeit being an older generation.
The Fujitsu Esprimo P756 has 4 RAM slots while the Acer Veriton ES2740g has only 2 slot(s). This is not something to worry about. Just make sure you take it into consideration when planning how much RAM you are going to use.
The Acer Veriton ES2740g is using the faster 2666 MT/s RAM. The Fujitsu Esprimo P756 is slower by supporting RAM speeds of up to 2133 MT/s. Additionally, if you will be needing a lot of RAM, better go for the Fujitsu Esprimo P756 as it has the ability to run 64 GB of RAM. The Acer Veriton ES2740g can do a bit less at max 32 GB. Most of the times, this should be sufficient for the majority of users.
In total the Fujitsu Esprimo P756 has 10 USB ports. The Acer Veriton ES2740g is inferior in this regard and packs 8 USB ports. In any case, if you miss USB ports, you can always purchase a USB hub. None of the desktop models has a USB 3.1 port (10Gb/s), so if you need a fast connection to your peripherals, like external Solid State Drive, you will need to look elsewhere.
Unfortunately, only the Fujitsu Esprimo P756 has a DisplayPort. The Acer Veriton ES2740g does not have one? Don't worry though, nowadays video adapters are cheap and you can get almost any combination of conversion types.
The Acer Veriton ES2740g comes with an HDMI port, while the Fujitsu Esprimo P756 does not support the interface. Of course missing HDMI port is something that can be easily fixed with a good adapter (e.g. DisplayPort to HDMI).
SATA ports are placed on the system board and it is where you connect your HDD, SSD and Optical Disk Drives. More SATA slots will allow you to have more drives running at the same time. In this regard the Fujitsu Esprimo P756 is better equipped as it comes with 5 SATA slot(s), while the Acer Veriton ES2740g has 2 slot(s).
When your goal is to have the fastest SSD transfer speeds, an M.2 interface is crucial. Thus, it is good that both models have M.2 SSD slots. Today M.2 SSDs are not much more expensive than the average SATA drives, so it really does not make sense to invest in SATA drives anymore.
Make sure that the available M.2 slot supports the PCIe (also called NVMe) interface. This is important as there are M.2 slots which support only the inferior SATA III interface. For comparison, the SATA III interface has max speeds of 6Gb/s, while the PCIe 3.0 x4 will support speeds up to 32Gb/s!
Having a Power Supply Unit with high power rating is important, if you are going to use components which require extra power. The Acer Veriton ES2740g comes with a decent 180 Watt PSU, but the Fujitsu Esprimo P756 has a more powerful one rated at 280 Watts. Choosing either one depends on your specific requirements and use case. Also don't forget that some models might have more than one PSU option - try to always get the most powerful one, especially if you plan to upgrade to a powerful GPU.
