6 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent Reviews for Its Personal Computers

Many processor core personal computers manufactured by Apple have excellent reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all personal computers (not just many processor core personal computers) and found that Apple also has excellent reviews across its entire range.

Flash Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is Flash, which is the most frequently found storage medium on computers that were released around the same time as it. 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

Gold EPEAT Compliance

This personal computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many many processor core personal computers that were launched more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency

With a maximum turbo frequency of 3.9 gigahertz, the Apple ME253 has one of the faster maximum turbo frequencies amongst many processor core personal computers of this age. The slowest maximum turbo frequency of many processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the ME253 is 2.5GHz and the fastest is 4GHz.

Chart Edit

Supports One Case Placement

The number of placements supported by the Apple ME253 is more than most many processor core personal computers that were launched more than two years ago. This desktop computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by computers that have been available for a similar time to the ME253.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Across all the computers that were launched more than two years ago the weights range from 250g to 30kg, and the average weight is 12kg. The Apple ME253 is one of the lighter computers that have been around for a comparable time to the ME253 (only 5 kilograms) amongst many processor core personal computers of this age.

2 Reasons Against

Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

At only 2,048 gigabytes, the Apple ME253 has a quite small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable spec and age to the ME253. The average discrete graphics adapter memory of many processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago is 3.8TB.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory

When compared to other comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to the ME253 that we have assessed the maximum internal memory of, the Apple ME253's maximum internal memory of only 64 gigabytes is one of the smallest. The average maximum internal memory of many processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago is 140GB.

4 Other reasons to consider the Apple ME253

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when this Apple PC was released.

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 3 gigahertz, the Apple ME253 has a relatively standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the ME253.

If this personal computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the Apple Mac Pro (3.5GHz).
