This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many PCs of a similar spec and age to it.
Asus Computers Have Good Reviews
We checked 315 owner and expert reviews for Asus computers and found that on average Asus has good reviews. We also found that Asus has good reviews specifically for its few processor core PCs.
Quite Big Total Storage Capacity
The Asus M32AD has a quite big total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been available for more than a year. The smallest total storage capacity of desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the M32AD is 8GB and the biggest is 3TB.
PCs with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth considering include the Acer Revo One RL85 (£259.00) (2TB) which also has a higher rating.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on personal computers of a similar type and age to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many PCs of this spec and age.
Supports Six Compatible Memory Cards
The Asus M32AD has a greater number of compatible memory card than most personal computers of a comparable type and age to it. This PC supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most frequently supported compatible memory card supported by computers of this age and type. The compatible memory cards "Memory Stick (MS)", "MMC", "MS PRO", "SDHC" and "xD" are also supported by this computer.
+3 More reasons for
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many personal computers of this age and spec.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Asus M32AD is more than most few processor core PCs that have been around for a similar time to it. The most frequently found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this desktop computer.
3 Reasons Against
Quite Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Across all the similar spec computers that were released around the same time as the M32AD the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1GB to 16GB. When compared to other few processor core PCs that were released around the same time as the M32AD, the maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of the Asus M32AD of only 1.024 gigabytes is one of the smallest.
With a weight of 8.3 kilograms, the Asus M32AD is one of the heavier few processor core PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the M32AD amongst similar spec PCs of this age. Across all the few processor core PCs that have been around for a similar time to the M32AD the weights range from 140g to 16kg.
The height of the Asus M32AD of 408.5 millimeters is one of the tallest amongst few processor core PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the M32AD. The average height of desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the M32AD is 190mm.
3 Other reasons to consider the Asus M32AD
Average Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.5 gigahertz, the Asus M32AD has a relatively average processor clock speed compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the M32AD.
At 4 gigabytes, the Asus M32AD has a pretty average internal memory compared to most of the other computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
Computers with a bigger internal memory that might also be worth considering include the Acer Aspire XC-605 (£557.95) (6GB), or the Asus M32AD (£441.04) (6GB).
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many PCs of this age and type. 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.
