+5 More reasons for
Supports Six Compatible Memory Cards
The Asus M32AD has a greater number of compatible memory card than most PCs of this age and spec. This personal computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most commonly supported compatible memory card supported by PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the M32AD. The compatible memory cards "Memory Stick (MS)", "MMC", "MS PRO", "SDHC" and "xD" are also supported by this desktop computer.
8.1 Audio Output Channel
The Asus M32AD has a better audio output than most personal computers of a similar age and type to it. This personal computer has an 8.1 audio output channel, whereas most comparable spec personal computers that have been available for a similar time to it have a 7.1 audio output channel.
This PC's audio output (8.1) is actually the best audio output amongst all medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the M32AD.
Amongst comparable types of PC the worst audio output is 5.1.
Supports One Case Placement
The Asus M32AD has a greater number of placements than most medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to it. This Asus PC supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than a year ago.
2 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on 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.
Personal computers with a faster storage speed that might also be worth considering include the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini (£615.00) (SSD).
Very Small Maximum Graphics Adapter Memory
At only 1.7 gigabytes, the Asus M32AD has a quite small maximum graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the M32AD. The average maximum graphics adapter memory of medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the M32AD is 1.8GB, and the maximum graphics adapter memory capacities range from 1.7GB to 2.1GB.
4 Other reasons to consider the Asus M32AD
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.2 gigahertz, the Asus M32AD has a pretty typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the M32AD.
If you want a personal computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the HP Z240 (£644.40) (3.3GHz) which also has a higher rating.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the Asus M32AD has a relatively typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as the M32AD.
If this desktop computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire TC-705 (£539.00) (2TB).
Average Total Storage Capacity
The Asus M32AD has a relatively typical total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago.
Desktop computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth looking at include the Asus G20AJ (£750.48) (1TB).
+2 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the Asus M32AD has a relatively typical internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
If this computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Acer Aspire XC-705 (£449.00) (10GB), or the Apple ME253 (£2,467.96) (12GB).
