15 Reasons For
Asus PCs Have Good Reviews
We calculated the average ratings for all Asus PCs and also specifically for Asus medium processor core personal computers and found that in both cases Asus had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on personal computers of a comparable spec and age to it.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the M32AD is 640MHz and the fastest is 1,300MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,200 megahertz, the Asus M32AD has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the M32AD.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.6 gigahertz, the Asus M32AD has one of the faster processor clock speeds amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. Comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to the M32AD have processor clock speeds of between 1.3GHz and 4GHz.
Desktop computers with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth considering include the Apple ME253 (£2,467.96) (3.7GHz).
Quite Big Hard Drive Capacity
The smallest hard drive capacity of medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year is 1GB and the biggest is 3TB. With a hard drive capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the Asus M32AD has one of the bigger hard drive capacity amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Personal computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might be worth considering include the Acer Aspire TC-705 (£539.00) (2TB).
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
+10 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on desktop computers of this age and type.
Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
With a maximum turbo frequency of 4 gigahertz, the Asus M32AD has a fairly fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other personal computers that were released more than a year ago. Across all the similar spec personal computers that came out around the same time as the M32AD the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year.
Fairly Big Hybrid Hard Drive (H-HDD) Cache Memory
The Asus M32AD has one of the bigger hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) cache memories (32 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) cache memories of desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the M32AD range from 8GB to 1TB, and the average hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) cache memory is 51GB.
Supports Six Compatible Memory Cards
The number of compatible memory card supported by the Asus M32AD is more than most PCs of this type and age. This PC supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most frequently supported compatible memory card supported by personal computers of this spec and age. The compatible memory cards "Memory Stick (MS)", "MMC", "MS PRO", "SDHC" and "xD" are also supported by this computer.
8.1 Audio Output Channel
The Asus M32AD has a better audio output than most similar spec PCs that were released around the same time as it. This computer has an 8.1 audio output channel, whereas most medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as it have a 7.1 audio output channel.
This desktop computer's audio output (8.1) is actually the best audio output across all medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the M32AD.
A 5.1 audio output channel is the worst audio output amongst similar types of desktop computer.
Supports One Case Placement
The number of placements supported by the Asus M32AD is more than most medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to it. This Asus personal computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the M32AD.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This desktop computer supports a GDDR3 discrete graphics memory type, which is the most frequently supported discrete graphics memory type on comparable spec computers that are a similar age to it.
4 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on personal computers of a comparable age and spec to 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.
If the storage speed of this computer is too slow for you then you might want to consider the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini (SSD).
Very Small Maximum Graphics Adapter Memory
The Asus M32AD has a fairly small maximum graphics adapter memory (only 1.7 gigabytes) compared to most of the other computers that have been available for a similar time to the M32AD. Personal computers that came out around the same time as the M32AD have maximum graphics adapter memory capacities of between 1.7GB and 2.1GB, and the average maximum graphics adapter memory is 1.8GB.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The Asus M32AD has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it. The most frequently found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this desktop computer.
Very Small Maximum Graphics Adapter Memory
Comparable spec computers that are a similar age to the M32AD have maximum graphics adapter memory of between 1.7GB and 1.8GB. With a maximum graphics adapter memory of only 1,700 megabyte, the Asus M32AD has a fairly small maximum graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the M32AD.

Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this medium processor core desktop computer was released.
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the Asus M32AD has a relatively average total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the M32AD.
If this personal computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the Asus G20AJ (£752.71) (1TB).
Average Internal Memory
The Asus M32AD has a relatively average internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than a year.
If you would prefer a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire XC-705 (£449.00) (10GB), or the Apple ME253 (£2,467.96) (12GB).
