4 Other reasons to consider the Asus BP1AD

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when Asus released the BP1AD.

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 3.2 gigahertz, the Asus BP1AD has a fairly average processor clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers that were released in the last year.

If this Asus computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the 600 G1 TWR (£594.17) (3.3GHz), or the 400 G3 MT (£449.06) (3.3GHz) both from HP.

Average Total Storage Capacity

The Asus BP1AD has a pretty average total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the BP1AD.

If you are looking for a personal computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the HP Z240 (£1,548.00) (512GB).

HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on recently released computers. 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 medium processor core desktop computer is too slow for you then you might want to consider the HP 400 G2 (£594.97) (SSD).
