5 Reasons Against
Only 4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version
The Asus M32AD supports a 4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version which is better than most few processor core PCs that are a comparable age to it. Most computers that have been available for a similar time to it support a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version.
This desktop computer's on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version (4) is in fact the worst supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version amongst all personal computers that came out in the last 12 months.
Amongst comparable types of desktop computer the best supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version is 4.4.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This desktop computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on desktop computers that have been available for the last year.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Latest few processor core PCs have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 64GB. The Asus M32AD has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (only 1.7 gigabytes) amongst desktop computers of this age.
The Asus M32AD is fairly heavy (8.3 kilograms) compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that came out in the last year. The lightest new few processor core personal computer is 360g heavy and the heaviest is 15kg.
+2 More reasons against
When compared to other desktop computers that have been available for the last year that we have checked, the Asus M32AD's height of 408.5 millimeters is one of the tallest. The shortest few processor core personal computer that has been on the market for a comparable time to the M32AD is 27mm high and the tallest is 500mm.
3 Other reasons to consider the Asus M32AD
Average Processor Clock Speed
The Asus M32AD has a relatively standard processor clock speed (3.6 gigahertz) compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that were launched in the last year.
If this Asus PC processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the DELL 3250 (3.7GHz) which is also cheaper.
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the Asus M32AD has a fairly standard internal memory compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the M32AD.
If this desktop computer internal memory is too small for you then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire XC-705 (6GB).
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on similar spec computers that came out around the same time as 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.
We compared this PC to all the other HDD desktop computers and we think the DELL 3250 which is cheaper is also worth considering.
PCs with a faster storage speed that might also be worth considering include the DELL OptiPlex 3040 (SSD).
