9 Reasons For

Apple PCs Have Excellent Reviews

Many processor core 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 core computers) and found that Apple also has excellent reviews across its entire range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many many processor core computers that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The storage speed of this desktop computer is Flash, which is the most commonly found storage medium on computers that have been around for around the same time as it. 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.

Alternative Flash computers currently available that you might want to consider include cheaper personal computers such as the Apple ME253[plb_3040923_price].

If the storage speed of this many processor core computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the Z640[pl_2520388_price] (SSD and cheaper), or the Z440 MT[pl_2720829_price] (SSD and cheaper) both from HP or the Lenovo P900[plb_2556131_price] (SSD and cheaper).

Quite Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

The Apple ME253 has a quite big discrete graphics adapter memory (6,144 megabytes) compared to most of the other many processor core computers that are a comparable age to the ME253. The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of many processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the ME253 is 1GB and the biggest is 8.2GB.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency

PCs of a comparable type and age to the ME253 have maximum turbo frequencies of between 2.6GHz and 3.9GHz. With a maximum turbo frequency of 3.9 gigahertz, the Apple ME253 has one of the faster maximum turbo frequencies amongst computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Short

Across all the desktop computers that are a comparable age to the ME253 the heights range from 170mm to 580mm. At only 251 millimeters, the Apple ME253 is fairly short compared to most of the other many processor core computers that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

The narrowest similar spec computer that is a comparable age to the ME253 is 160mm wide and the widest is 640mm. At only 167 millimeters, the Apple ME253 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other personal computers that were released around the same time as the ME253.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The average weight of similar spec PCs that were launched more than a year ago is 12kg. The Apple ME253 is fairly light (only 5 kilograms) compared to most of the other many processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to the ME253.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

With a depth of only 167 millimeters, the Apple ME253 is one of the shallower computers of a comparable age and spec to the ME253 amongst many processor core computers of this age. The average depth of many processor core computers that were released one year ago is 340mm.

Chart Edit

10 Reasons Against

Very Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

Many processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ME253 have memory clock speeds supported by processors of between 800MHz and 1,600MHz. With a memory clock speed supported by processor of only 800 megahertz, the Apple ME253 has one of the slower memory clock speeds supported by processors amongst personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of many processor core computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the ME253 is 2GB and the biggest is 8.2TB. At only 2 gigabytes, the Apple ME253 has a very small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other many processor core computers that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

At only 256 gigabytes, the Apple ME253 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other many processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to the ME253. The smallest total storage capacity of personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the ME253 is 120GB, the biggest is 2.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 740GB.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 256GB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available including cheaper computers such as the Z640[pl_2520388_price], or the Z440 MT[pl_2720829_price] both from HP or the Lenovo P900[plb_2556131_price].

If you want a PC with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the Apple ME253[plb_3040923_price] (512GB and cheaper).

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

The Apple ME253 is a four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port computer. Most of the other desktop computers of this spec and age have between four and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

Similar spec PCs that were released more than a year ago have max internal memory supported processors of between 64GB and 770GB. The Apple ME253 has a quite small max internal memory supported processor (only 256 gigabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the ME253.

Chart Edit

Only One CPU Configuration (max)

The Apple ME253 is a personal computer that takes one CPUs configuration (max).

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed

The Apple ME253 has a quite slow memory clock speed (only 1,866 megahertz) compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the ME253. The average memory clock speed of PCs that have been available for a similar time to the ME253 is 2,000MHz.

Chart Edit

Only Four USB 3.0 Ports

The Apple ME253 is a four USB 3.0 port personal computer. Most of the other many processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the ME253 have between four and seven USB 3.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Very Small Processor Cache

Comparable spec PCs that came out around the same time as the ME253 have processor caches of between 12MB and 30MB. The Apple ME253 has one of the smaller processor caches (only 12 megabytes) amongst many processor core computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory

The maximum internal memory of personal computers of this age and type range from 32GB to 770GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 150GB. At only 64 gigabytes, the Apple ME253 has a quite small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other computers of a comparable spec and age to the ME253.

3 Other reasons to consider the Apple ME253

Released Over a Year Ago

This desktop computer was released over a year ago.

Average Processor Clock Speed

The Apple ME253 has a relatively average processor clock speed (3.5 gigahertz) compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar type and age to the ME253.

We compared this personal computer to all the other 3.5GHz processor clock speed desktop computers and we think the HP Z440 MT[plb_2720829_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
