8 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent Reviews for Its Desktop Computers

Many processor cores desktop computers built by Apple have excellent reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all personal computers (not just many processor cores desktop computers) and found that Apple also has excellent reviews across its entire range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Modes

This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating modes, which is the most commonly supported processor operating modes on computers of a similar type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Price Has Dropped by £462.19

The ME253 has dropped in price by £462.19 in the last 45 days.

Flash Storage Media

The Apple ME253 has a faster storage speed than most computers that have been around for around the same time as it. This desktop computer has a Flash storage media, whereas most personal computers that were launched around the same time as it have an HDD storage media. Flash Drives store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive. Across all comparable spec computers that have been available for more than a year the storage speed ranges from HDD (worst) to SSD (best).

Chart Edit

Two Number of Discrete Graphics Adapterss

The Apple ME253 has more number of discrete graphics adapterss than most of the many processor cores desktop computers that have been available for a comparable time to the ME253. This Apple computer is a two number of discrete graphics adapters computer compared to most of the many processor cores desktop computers that were released one year ago which only have one number of discrete graphics adapters.

Chart Edit

Two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) Portss

Most of the other many processor cores desktop computers that came out around the same time as the ME253 only have one ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports, however the Apple ME253 has two ethernet LAN (RJ-45) portss.

Chart Edit

Very Fast Processor Boost Frequency

With a processor boost frequency of 3.9 gigahertz, the Apple ME253 has one of the faster processor boost frequencys amongst personal computers of this age. Across all the desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the ME253 the processor boost frequencys range from 2.6GHz to 3.9GHz, and the average processor boost frequency is 3.5GHz.

Chart Edit

Light

Across all the PCs of this age and type the weights range from 5kg to 30kg, and the average weight is 17kg. With a weight of only 5 kilograms, the Apple ME253 is quite light compared to most of the other many processor cores desktop computers that are a similar age to the ME253.

9 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speeds Supported by Processor

With a memory clock speeds supported by processor of only 800 megahertz, the Apple ME253's memory clock speeds supported by processor is one of the slowest amongst many processor cores desktop computers that have been available for a similar time to the ME253. The average memory clock speeds supported by processor of many processor cores desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to the ME253 is 1,400MHz.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

The smallest total storage capacity of PCs of a comparable spec and age to the ME253 is 120GB and the biggest is 2.3TB. The Apple ME253 has a quite small total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers that were released around the same time as the ME253.

Chart Edit

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

Most computers of this age and type have between two and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys, including the Apple ME253 which has four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

At only 256 gigabytes, the Apple ME253 has a fairly small maximum internal memory supported by processor compared to most of the other many processor cores desktop computers that are a similar age to the ME253. The smallest maximum internal memory supported by processor of many processor cores desktop computers that have been available for a similar time to the ME253 is 64GB, the biggest is 770GB, and the average maximum internal memory supported by processor is 660GB.

Chart Edit

Only One CPU Configuration (max)

The Apple ME253 is a computer that takes one CPU configuration (max)s.

Chart Edit

Only Has One Memory Slots

The Apple ME253 has a greater number of memory slots than most many processor cores desktop computers that are a comparable age to it. The most frequently found memory slots is 8x DIMM, but this memory slots is not found on this Apple PC. The memory slotss 4x DIMM are also found on this computer.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed

The Apple ME253 has one of the slower memory clock speeds (only 1,866 megahertz) amongst personal computers of this age. Across all the many processor cores desktop computers that are a similar age to the ME253 the memory clock speeds range from 1,600MHz to 2,200MHz.

Chart Edit

Very Small Processor Cache

The average processor cache of many processor cores desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the ME253 is 16MB. At only 12 megabytes, the Apple ME253 has a quite small processor cache compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the ME253.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory

With a maximum internal memory of only 64 gigabytes, the Apple ME253 has a quite small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other many processor cores desktop computers that came out around the same time as the ME253. Across all the similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to the ME253 the maximum internal memorys range from 32GB to 770GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 200GB.
