13 Reasons For
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on desktop computers of a similar age and type to it.
Price Drop of £58.21
In the last 28 days the Chromebox has dropped in price by £58.21.
Asus Has Good Reviews for Its PCs
We calculated the average ratings for all Asus PCs and also specifically for Asus few processor core PCs and found that in both cases Asus had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.
SSD Storage Medium
The Chromebox has a faster storage speed than most few processor core PCs that have been available for around the same time as it. This personal computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most few processor core PCs that have been around for a similar time to 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 in fact the best storage speed across all similar spec desktop computers that came out around the same time as the Chromebox.
Across similar types of computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many desktop computers of a comparable age and type to it.
Supports Two Compatible Memory Cards
The number of compatible memory card supported by the Chromebox is more than most similar spec computers that came out more than two years ago. This computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most frequently supported compatible memory card supported by desktop computers that are a comparable age to the Chromebox. The compatible memory card "MMC" is also supported by this Asus computer.
+8 More reasons for
DDR3-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This desktop computer has a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type, which is the most frequently found internal memory type on personal computers of this age and spec.
Four Processor Threads
Most personal computers of a comparable type and age to the Chromebox have between one and seven processor threads, including the Chromebox which has four processor threads.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Asus Chromebox is more than most PCs of this age and spec. The most commonly found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this personal computer.
Across all the few processor core PCs that came out around the same time as the Chromebox the widths range from 3.4mm to 390mm, and the average width is 170mm. At only 124 millimeters, the Chromebox is quite narrow compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Chromebox.
The heights of computers that have been on the market for more than two years range from 30mm to 430mm. The Chromebox is fairly short (only 41.9 millimeters) compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as the Chromebox.
The shallowest similar spec PC that was released around the same time as the Chromebox is 33mm deep and the deepest is 460mm. The Asus Chromebox is fairly shallow (only 124 millimeters) compared to most of the other PCs of this age and spec.
Across all the PCs of a similar type and age to the Chromebox the weights range from 600g to 14kg. The Chromebox is very light (only 600 grams) compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that were released more than two years ago.
9 Reasons Against
Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
Personal computers of this age and type have max internal memory supported processors of between 4GB and 32GB. At only 16 gigabytes, the Chromebox has a fairly small max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the Chromebox.
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
The Chromebox has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency (only 200 megahertz) compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to the Chromebox. Across all the few processor core PCs that were released more than two years ago the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 200MHz to 800MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 360MHz.
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,000 megahertz, the Chromebox has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies amongst few processor core PCs of this age. The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of similar spec computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Chromebox range from 790MHz to 1,200MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
At only 16 gigabytes, the Asus Chromebox has a very small total storage capacity compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been available for more than two years. The average total storage capacity of computers of this age and spec is 560GB.
If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the HP ProDesk 600 (£286.97) (500GB and cheaper).
+6 More reasons against
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
At only 1.7 gigahertz, the Chromebox has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar type and age to the Chromebox. The slowest processor clock speed of few processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the Chromebox is 1GHz and the fastest is 3.9GHz.
If you want a personal computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to consider the Asus BT1AD (£237.77) (3.4GHz and cheaper), or the HP ProDesk 600 (£286.97) (3.5GHz and cheaper).
Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory
With a maximum internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the Asus Chromebox has a very small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other PCs that were released more than two years ago. The maximum internal memory of similar spec PCs that were released more than two years ago range from 4GB to 32GB.
Very Small Solid-State Drive Capacity
At only 16 gigabytes, the Chromebox has a fairly small solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and spec. The average solid-state drive capacity of few processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Chromebox is 90GB.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
The Chromebox has one of the smaller maximum internal memory (only 16,384 megabytes) amongst few processor core PCs of this age. The maximum internal memory of PCs of this age and type range from 8.1GB to 33GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 27GB.
Only One DisplayPort
The Chromebox is a one DisplayPort personal computer.
2 Other reasons to consider the Asus Chromebox
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when Asus released the Chromebox.
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 4 gigabytes, the Chromebox has a fairly average internal memory compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the Chromebox.
There are a number of alternative 4GB memory personal computers currently available which you might also want to consider including cheaper PCs such as the HP ProDesk 600 G1 SFF.
If you want a PC with a bigger internal memory then you might also want to look at the HP ProDesk 600 (£286.97) (8GB) which is also cheaper.
