3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on personal computers of a similar type and age to it.
8.1 Audio Output Channel
The Asus M32AD has a better audio output than most comparable spec PCs that were launched more than two years ago. This personal computer has an 8.1 audio output channel, whereas most similar spec desktop computers that were released more than two years ago have a 2 audio output channel.
This personal computer's audio output (8.1) is actually the best audio output amongst all personal computers of a similar age and spec to the M32AD.
A 1 audio output channel is the worst audio output amongst similar types of personal computer.
Fairly Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the M32AD is 510MB, the biggest is 6.2GB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 2GB. The Asus M32AD has a quite big discrete graphics adapter memory (3,072 megabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the M32AD.
Supports One Case Placement
The number of placements supported by the Asus M32AD is more than most medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago. This desktop computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the M32AD.
Has One Cable Included
The number of included cables found on the Asus M32AD is more than most medium processor core personal computers that came out more than two years ago. This desktop computer has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the M32AD.

9 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most personal computers that came out more than two years ago have between one and eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the Asus M32AD which has two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on desktop computers 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.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other HDD computers currently available including the OptiPlex 7020[pl_2396885_price], or the OptiPlex 9020[pl_2881924_price] both from DELL or the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_1589712_price] which is cheaper.
If the storage speed of this computer is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the EliteDesk 800 G1[pl_2229911_price] (SSD and cheaper), or the EliteDesk 800 G1[pl_2564215_price] (SSD and cheaper) both from HP or the DELL OptiPlex 9020[plb_2555150_price] (SSD and cheaper).
