3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on few processor core PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
Three 3.5" Bays
Most computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the BM1AD have between one and five 3.5" bays, including the Asus BM1AD which has three 3.5" bays.
7.1 Audio Output Channel
The Asus BM1AD has a 7.1 audio output channel which is better than most desktop computers of a similar age and spec to it. Most computers of this age and spec have a 5.1 audio output channel.
This personal computer's audio output (7.1) is actually the best audio output amongst all PCs of this spec and age.
A 5.1 audio output channel is the worst audio output across similar types of personal computer.

4 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on few processor core PCs that have been around for a similar time to it. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
If the storage speed of this Asus computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the NEC Slot-In PC (£1,205.58) (SSD).
Only Two Processor Threads
Most few processor core PCs that have been available for more than two years have between one and seven processor threads, including the Asus BM1AD which has two processor threads.
Only One PCI Express X1 Slot
The Asus BM1AD is a one PCI Express x1 slot personal computer. Most of the other personal computers that have been on the market for more than two years have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots.
The average weight of few processor core PCs that have been available for more than two years is 5kg, and the weights range from 600g to 14kg. When compared to other PCs that are a comparable age to the BM1AD that we have checked, the Asus BM1AD's weight of 13.5 kilograms is one of the heaviest.
