The Asus Chromebox has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most few processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to it. Most few processor core computers that came out around the same time as it have an HDD storage medium. 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 actually the best storage speed amongst all few processor core computers that have been around for more than a year.
Amongst similar types of PC the worst storage speed is HDD.
We compared this PC to all the other SSD desktop computers and we think because of it's better review score, the Asus GR8[plb_3186870_price] is also worth considering.
