You can change the order of the answers yourself if required by selecting Active, Oldest, or Votes. This is a per-user choice.
But in general there is no need to have the accepted answer also have the highest number of votes. "Accept" is just the way the OP uses to indicate which answer they liked best (so it's kind of like a super-vote). This may be different from what other users think (and vote).
In the specific case this is rather obvious: The OP is asking
I'm aware that multiple third-party websites exist that have this info, but is there an easy-to-find list of archived URLs for the spec pages for these older models that were previously contained on the Apple Support pages?
which actually only the accepted answer covers. But others consider the links to 3rd party information more helpful, so the voting differs.
