8 Reasons For

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on desktop computers of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Good Brand

Few processor core computers manufactured by Acer have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all personal computers (not just few processor core computers) and found that Acer also has good ratings across its entire range.

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

The Chromebox CXI2 is a four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port desktop computer. Most of the other PCs of a similar age and spec to the Chromebox CXI2 have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The Chromebox CXI2 has a Flash storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most few processor core computers that have been available 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. Across all few processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Chromebox CXI2 the best storage speed is SSD and the worst is HDD.

Computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth considering include the Asus CN60[plb_3089875_price] (SSD) which also has a higher rating.
