Chart Edit

Fairly Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

The maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of PCs that are a comparable age to the M32AD range from 1GB to 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 4.3GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of 1.74 gigabytes, the Asus M32AD has one of the bigger maximum on-board graphics adapter memories amongst PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

L3 Processor Cache Level

This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

Supports Six Compatible Memory Cards

The Asus M32AD has a greater number of compatible memory card than most similar spec desktop computers that were launched more than a year ago. This computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most frequently supported compatible memory card supported by desktop computers of a comparable age and type to the M32AD. The compatible memory cards "Memory Stick (MS)", "MMC", "MS Duo", "SDHC" and "xD" are also supported by this Asus personal computer.

Chart Edit

DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type

The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on comparable spec desktop computers that were launched more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

10 Reasons Against

Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

The Asus M32AD is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port PC.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the M32AD the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,100 megahertz, the Asus M32AD has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies amongst personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

The slowest processor clock speed of PCs of a comparable type and age to the M32AD is 1.3GHz and the fastest is 4GHz. With a processor clock speed of only 2.9 gigahertz, the Asus M32AD has one of the slower processor clock speeds amongst comparable spec computers of this age.

Alternative 2.9GHz processor clock speed computers currently available which you might also want to consider include the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73[plb_2752434_price] which is cheaper.

If you are looking for a computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to consider the 280 G1[pl_2934654_price] (3GHz and cheaper), the 280 G1 MT[pl_3301524_price] (3GHz and cheaper), or the ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF[pl_2973425_price] (3GHz and cheaper) all from HP.

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on desktop computers that have been available for more than a year. 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.

We compared this computer to all the other HDD personal computers and we think cheaper computers such as the 280 G1[pl_2934654_price], and the 800 G2 SFF[pl_3768356_price] both from HP or the DELL OptiPlex 3020[plb_2457302_price] is also worth considering.

Personal computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth looking at include the OptiPlex 9020 SFF[pl_2414879_price] (SSD), or the OptiPlex 9020[pl_2985619_price] (SSD) both from DELL which is also cheaper.

Very Small Internal Memory

Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the M32AD the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB, and the average internal memory is 8.3GB. At only 4 gigabytes, the Asus M32AD has a quite small internal memory compared to most of the other computers of a similar age and spec to the M32AD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 4GB memory PCs currently available including the OptiPlex 3020[pl_2457302_price], or the OptiPlex 9020[pl_2556629_price] both from DELL which is cheaper.

If you want a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the DELL 270[plb_3068921_price] (6GB and cheaper), or the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF[plb_2973425_price] (8GB and cheaper).

The Asus M32AD is a three USB 2.0 port computer.

Chart Edit

Only Two USB 3.0 Ports

The Asus M32AD is a two USB 3.0 port personal computer.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory

PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the M32AD have maximum internal memory of between 2GB and 260GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 33GB.

Chart Edit

Only One PCI Express X1 Slot

The Asus M32AD is a one PCI Express x1 slot desktop computer. Most of the other personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the M32AD have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency

Medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the M32AD have maximum turbo frequencies of between 1.8GHz and 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz. The Asus M32AD has a quite slow maximum turbo frequency (only 3.4 gigahertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the M32AD.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the Asus M32AD

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when this computer was released.

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 1,000 gigabyte, the Asus M32AD has a pretty typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the M32AD.

We compared all the other 1TB total storage capacity PCs to this computer and we think because of it's better review score, the DELL PowerEdge T20[plb_2747980_price] is also worth considering.

If this desktop computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_3121374_price] (2TB).

There are other brands that have better specs for less money, but their component quality may not be as good. Other than that we have not had any problems with this PC so far
