18 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

PCs manufactured by Apple generally have excellent reviews.

Flash Storage Medium

The Apple ME253 has a Flash storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most medium processor core PCs that have been around for more than a year. 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 medium processor core PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the ME253 the worst storage speed is HDD and the best is SSD.

There are a number of alternative Flash personal computers currently available which you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Intel BOXNUC5PGYH0AJ.

If the storage speed of this personal computer is too slow for you then you might want to look at the HP ProDesk 600 G2 Mini (SSD).

Very Fast Processor Clock Speed

At 3.7 gigahertz, the Apple ME253 has a fairly fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other PCs of this type and age. Medium processor core PCs that were released one year ago have processor clock speeds of between 1.3GHz and 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 12 gigabytes, the Apple ME253 has one of the bigger internal memory amongst medium processor core PCs of this age. The average internal memory of desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the ME253 is 8GB, and the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB.

If you want a desktop computer with a bigger internal memory then you might also want to look at the HP 800 G2 ($699.95) (16GB).
