24 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent Reviews for Its Personal Computers

Desktop computers produced by Apple generally have excellent reviews compared to other brands.

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 computers of a similar age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

The Apple ME253 has a fairly fast max memory bandwidth supported processor (59.7 gigabytes per second) compared to most of the other PCs of this age and type. Computers that are a comparable age to the ME253 have max memory bandwidth supported processor of between 10GB/s and 68GB/s.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

Across all the computers of this age and type the max internal memory supported processors range from 2GB to 770GB. At 256 gigabytes, the Apple ME253 has a quite big max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other desktop computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The Apple ME253 has a Flash storage medium which is faster than most comparable spec computers that are a similar age to it. Most medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as 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 PCs of a similar type and age to the ME253 the worst storage speed is HDD and the best is SSD.

Chart Edit

Very Fast Processor Clock Speed

PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the ME253 have processor clock speeds of between 1GHz and 4.1GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz. When compared to other comparable spec personal computers that were released more than two years ago that we have assessed the processor clock speed of, the Apple ME253's processor clock speed of 3.7 gigahertz is one of the fastest.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 12 gigabytes, the Apple ME253 has a fairly big internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the ME253. The smallest internal memory of personal computers of this age and type is 2GB and the biggest is 64GB.

We compared all the other 12GB memory desktop computers to this personal computer and we think the Zoostorm Intel Core i7-4790 Mini Tower[plb_2785392_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) Ports

The Apple ME253 is a two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) port desktop computer. Most of the other comparable spec computers that were released more than two years ago only have one Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) port.

Chart Edit

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

This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Two Discrete Graphics Adapters

The Apple ME253 has more discrete graphics adapters than most of the medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the ME253. Most of the similar spec computers that are a comparable age to the ME253 only have one discrete graphics adapter, however this computer has two discrete graphics adapters.

Chart Edit

Very Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

At 6,144 megabytes, the Apple ME253 has a very big discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other personal computers of this type and age. The average discrete graphics adapter memory of personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the ME253 is 2GB.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory

At 64 gigabytes, the Apple ME253 has a quite big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the ME253. The average maximum internal memory of medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago is 32GB.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Processor Cache

The smallest processor cache of medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago is 0.51MB, the biggest is 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.8MB. The Apple ME253 has one of the bigger processor caches (10 megabytes) amongst personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed

Across all the similar spec computers that have been available for around the same time as the ME253 the memory clock speeds range from 1,000MHz to 2,200MHz. With a memory clock speed of 1,866 megahertz, the Apple ME253 has one of the faster memory clock speeds amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

Narrow

Medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the ME253 have widths of between 33mm and 490mm. With a width of only 167 millimeters, the Apple ME253 is quite narrow compared to most of the other similar spec computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Shallow

Personal computers that came out around the same time as the ME253 have depths of between 33mm and 690mm, and the average depth is 360mm. At only 167 millimeters, the Apple ME253 is fairly shallow compared to most of the other desktop computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

2 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

The Apple ME253 has a very slow memory clock speed supported by processor (only 800 megahertz) compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that have been available for more than two years. Across all the computers that are a similar age to the ME253 the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 800MHz to 2,200MHz.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

Comparable spec PCs that have been around for more than two years have total storage capacity of between 32GB and 3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 710GB. With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the Apple ME253 has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst similar spec personal computers of this age.

Computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth looking at include the Lenovo M73[plb_3186300_price] (500GB).
