5 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent Reviews for Its Personal Computers

We calculated the average ratings for all Apple personal computers and also specifically for Apple many processor core personal computers and found that in both cases Apple had excellent ratings compared to other brands.

£160.93 Price Drop

In the last 8 days the ME253 has dropped in price by £160.93.

Flash Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is Flash, which is the most commonly found storage medium on desktop computers that were launched more than a year ago. 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.

We compared all the other Flash computers to this PC and we think cheaper personal computers such as the Mac Pro (£2,199.00), the Mac Pro (£2,899.00), and the Mac Pro all from Apple is also worth considering.

Quite Big Processor Cache

Across all the PCs of a comparable age and type to the ME253 the processor caches range from 12MB to 30MB, and the average processor cache is 20MB. At 30 megabytes, the Apple ME253 has a fairly big processor cache compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the ME253.

Chart Edit

Very Light

At only 5 kilograms, the Apple ME253 is fairly light compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that were launched more than a year ago. Across all the many processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ME253 the weights range from 5kg to 30kg, and the average weight is 11kg.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Very Small Internal Memory

With an internal memory of only 12 gigabytes, the Apple ME253 has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year. The smallest internal memory of personal computers that were released one year ago is 8GB and the biggest is 64GB.

There are a number of alternative 12GB memory PCs currently available which you might want to look at including the Apple Mac Pro (£2,199.00) which is cheaper.

If you would prefer a computer with a bigger internal memory then you might also want to consider the Mac Pro (£2,899.00) (16GB and cheaper), or the Mac Pro (16GB and cheaper) both from Apple.

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed

At only 1,866 megahertz, the Apple ME253 has a quite slow memory clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers of this spec and age. The slowest memory clock speed of similar spec computers that have been around for around the same time as the ME253 is 1,600MHz and the fastest is 2,200MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency

Personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ME253 have maximum turbo frequencies of between 2.6GHz and 3.9GHz. The Apple ME253 has a fairly slow maximum turbo frequency (only 3.5 gigahertz) compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory

The maximum internal memory of PCs of this type and age range from 32GB to 520GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 140GB. With a maximum internal memory of only 64 gigabytes, the Apple ME253 has one of the smaller maximum internal memory amongst comparable spec PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Not Cheap

The price range of many processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago is from £1,277 to £5,320. We think that this desktop computer looks expensive compared to other many processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago.

3 Other reasons to consider the Apple ME253

Released Over Two Years Ago

Apple released the ME253 over two years ago.

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 512 gigabytes, the Apple ME253 has a fairly standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other PCs that have been around for more than a year.

Chart Edit

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 2.7 gigahertz, the Apple ME253 has a relatively average processor clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers that were released around the same time as the ME253.

We compared all the other 2.7GHz processor clock speed desktop computers to this personal computer and we think the Apple Mac Pro (£2,199.00) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to consider the Mac Pro (£2,899.00) (3GHz and cheaper), or the Mac Pro (3.5GHz and cheaper) both from Apple.
