This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many comparable spec PCs that were released around the same time as it.
Fairly Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
With a discrete graphics adapter memory of 2,048 gigabytes, the Asus M12AD has a quite big discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been around for more than a year. The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of similar spec computers that have been available for a comparable time to the M12AD is 1GB, the biggest is 2.1TB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 1.2TB.
Fairly Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
The max internal memory supported processors of computers of this age and type range from 4GB to 64GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 27GB. At 32 gigabytes, the Asus M12AD has a quite big max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that came out around the same time as the M12AD.
Asus Has Good Reviews for Its Computers
We checked 310 expert and owner reviews for Asus personal computers and found that on average Asus has good reviews compared to other brands. We also found that Asus has good reviews specifically within its few processor core PCs range.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.6 gigahertz, the Asus M12AD has a fairly fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age. Across all the desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the M12AD the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 3.9GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.8GHz.
If you would prefer a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the Lenovo S500 SFF (£299.97) (3.7GHz), or the Asus M32AD (£441.04) (3.7GHz).
Fairly Big Hard Drive Capacity
The smallest hard drive capacity of few processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the M12AD is 250GB and the biggest is 2TB. At 1,000 gigabyte, the Asus M12AD has a quite big hard drive capacity compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that were released around the same time as the M12AD.
PCs with a bigger hard drive capacity that might be worth considering include the Acer Revo One RL85 (£299.99) (2TB) which also has a higher rating.
+10 More reasons for
Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity
The total storage capacity of few processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as the M12AD range from 8GB to 3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 550GB. With a total storage capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the Asus M12AD has a quite big total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers of a similar type and age to the M12AD.
If this few processor core personal computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Acer Revo One RL85 (£299.99) (2TB and higher rated).
Fairly Big Internal Memory
The smallest internal memory of few processor core PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the M12AD is 2GB, the biggest is 16GB, and the average internal memory is 5GB. The Asus M12AD has a quite big internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers of this spec and age.
Has One Cable Included
The Asus M12AD has a greater number of included cables than most desktop computers of this spec and age. This computer has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on few processor core PCs that are a similar age to the M12AD.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many similar spec computers that have been available for around the same time as it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
Four Processor Threads
The Asus M12AD has more processor threads than most of the few processor core PCs that came out more than a year ago. Most of the few processor core PCs that have been available for around the same time as the M12AD only have between two and three processor threads, however this desktop computer has four processor threads.
Very Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The average discrete graphics adapter memory of few processor core PCs that were launched more than a year ago is 1.6GB. With a discrete graphics adapter memory of 2,048 megabytes, the Asus M12AD has a very big discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the M12AD.
Supports Six Compatible Memory Cards
The number of compatible memory card supported by the Asus M12AD is more than most computers that were released more than a year ago. This computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most commonly supported compatible memory card supported by PCs that have been around for around the same time as the M12AD. The compatible memory cards "MMC", "MS PRO", "MS PRO Duo", "SDHC" and "xD" are also supported by this personal computer.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This computer supports a GDDR3 discrete graphics memory type, which is typical of many few processor core PCs that were released around the same time as it.
2 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on few processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as it. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
The Asus M12AD is one of the heavier personal computers of this type and age (8.3 kilograms) amongst personal computers of this age. The average weight of few processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as the M12AD is 4.7kg.
