7 Reasons For

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many few processor core computers that came out in the last 12 months.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

Similar spec PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the Beebox N3000 have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1.7GB and 64GB. The Asrock Beebox N3000 has a fairly big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to the Beebox N3000.

Chart Edit

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

Most recently released desktop computers have between one and five USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the Asrock Beebox N3000 which has four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The Asrock Beebox N3000 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most latest few processor core computers. Solid State Drives (SSD) 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.

An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage speed across all PCs that have been available for a similar time to the Beebox N3000.

The worst storage speed across comparable types of personal computer is HDD.

Four USB 3.0 Ports

Most few processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Beebox N3000 have between one and five USB 3.0 ports, including the Beebox N3000 which has four USB 3.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Very Short

The shortest few processor core PC that has been on the market for the last year is 33mm high and the tallest is 500mm. The Asrock Beebox N3000 is one of the shorter new few processor core computers (only 46 millimeters) amongst few processor core computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

The shallowest recently released few processor core PC is 83mm deep and the deepest is 440mm. The Beebox N3000 is one of the shallower new similar spec personal computers (only 118.5 millimeters) amongst comparable spec PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

Across all the similar spec desktop computers that were launched in the last year the max internal memory supported processors range from 8GB to 64GB. With a max internal memory supported processor of only 8 gigabytes, the Beebox N3000 has a quite small max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other new desktop computers.

Chart Edit

Only Two SATA III Connectors

The Asrock Beebox N3000 is a two SATA III connector computer. Most of the other recently released computers have between two and three SATA III connectors.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

Computers that were released in the last 12 months have processor clock speeds of between 1GHz and 3.7GHz. At only 1.04 gigahertz, the Beebox N3000 has a very slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other latest few processor core computers.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

The Beebox N3000 has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 128 gigabytes) amongst few processor core computers of this age. The smallest total storage capacity of new computers is 16GB and the biggest is 1TB.

If this computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the 400 G2 (£609.98) (256GB), the 400 G3 MT (£618.54) (256GB), or the 400 G3 SFF (£592.56) (256GB) all from HP.

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory

The average maximum internal memory of few processor core computers that were released in the last 12 months is 23GB, and the maximum internal memory range from 8.1GB to 33GB. The Beebox N3000 has a fairly small maximum internal memory (only 8,192 megabytes) compared to most of the other latest comparable spec computers.

Chart Edit

Only Two Processor Threads

The Asrock Beebox N3000 is a two processor thread personal computer.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Processor Cache

With a processor cache of only 2 megabytes, the Beebox N3000 has one of the smaller processor caches amongst computers of this age. The average processor cache of few processor core computers that were released in the last 12 months is 2.9MB, and the processor caches range from 1MB to 4MB.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency

The Beebox N3000 has a quite slow maximum turbo frequency (only 2.08 gigahertz) compared to most of the other few processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the Beebox N3000. Few processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the Beebox N3000 have maximum turbo frequencies of between 2GHz and 3.6GHz.

Chart Edit

Only One Storage Drive

Most new few processor core computers have one storage drive, including the Beebox N3000 which has one storage drive.

2 Other reasons to consider the Asrock Beebox N3000

Released Ten Months Ago

It was ten months ago when this computer was released.

Average Internal Memory

At 4 gigabytes, the Beebox N3000 has a fairly typical internal memory compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been around for the last year.

If this desktop computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Acer Aspire XC-705 (£299.99) (6GB), the Alienware Alpha (£317.81) (8GB), or the HP 400 G3 SFF (£592.56) (8GB).
