    say in other words

    Hi dear experts, I have to translate a sentence from English into my native language, but I can't get the point. Could you, please ,paraphrase it for me, the underlined part in particular:

    "The cache size can vary from 32 or 64 MB in entry models to 1024 MB in high-end servers."

    "Entry models" are usually the most basic version of something (a car, a computer etc). "High-end" means that they are much more advanced in terms of quality or performance.

    The sentence means that the basic versions of the servers have a cache size of 32 or 64 MB, but the more advanced versions have a cache size of up to 1024 MB.

    (Note: I have no idea what that means in practical terms as my technical knowledge of computers is limited!)
