7 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent Reviews for Its Computers

We calculated the average reviews for all Apple desktop computers and also specifically for Apple many processor core personal computers and found that in both cases Apple had excellent reviews compared to other manufacturers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is Flash, which is typical of many computers of this spec and age. 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.

Chart Edit

Gold EPEAT Compliance

This personal computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many comparable spec computers that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency

At 3.9 gigahertz, the Apple ME253 has a fairly fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that were launched more than two years ago. Across all the personal computers of a similar type and age to the ME253 the maximum turbo frequencies range from 2.5GHz to 4GHz.

Chart Edit

Supports One Case Placement

The number of placements supported by the Apple ME253 is more than most computers of this spec and age. This personal computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by many processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The weights of desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the ME253 range from 250g to 30kg, and the average weight is 12kg. The Apple ME253 is fairly light (only 5 kilograms) compared to most of the other PCs that were launched around the same time as the ME253.

6 Reasons Against

Very Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

The memory clock speeds supported by processors of personal computers that were launched around the same time as the ME253 range from 800MHz to 1,600MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,100MHz. At only 800 megahertz, the Apple ME253 has a quite slow memory clock speed supported by processor compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the ME253.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

Across all the many processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the ME253 the total storage capacity range from 180GB to 8.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 800GB. The Apple ME253 has a quite small total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of many processor core personal computers that have been around for more than two years is 3GB and the biggest is 8.2TB. At only 2,048 gigabytes, the Apple ME253 has a quite small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the ME253.

Chart Edit

Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

With a max internal memory supported processor of only 256 gigabytes, the Apple ME253 has one of the smaller max internal memory supported processors amongst computers of this age. The smallest max internal memory supported processor of personal computers that came out around the same time as the ME253 is 64GB, the biggest is 770GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 630GB.

Chart Edit

Very Small Processor Cache

At only 12 megabytes, the Apple ME253 has a fairly small processor cache compared to most of the other desktop computers of this spec and age. Across all the many processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the ME253 the processor caches range from 12MB to 30MB, and the average processor cache is 20MB.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory

Across all the many processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the ME253 the maximum internal memory range from 32GB to 520GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 140GB. At only 64 gigabytes, the Apple ME253 has a quite small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the ME253.
