Asus Has Good Reviews for Its PCs
Asus is one of the superior computer brands according to average user and expert reviews, and Asus also has good reviews for its few processor core PCs.
SSD Storage Medium
The Chromebox2 G004U has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most few processor core PCs that are a comparable age to it. Most comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market 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 actually the best storage speed amongst all computers of this type and age.
The worst storage speed amongst comparable types of personal computer is HDD.
If you want a computer with a faster storage speed then you might also want to consider the Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 (£650.22) (Flash).
DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
The Chromebox2 G004U has a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than most few processor core PCs that have been available for more than a year. Most comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to it have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type.
This computer's internal memory type (DDR3L-SDRAM) is in fact the best internal memory type amongst all PCs that were released more than a year ago.
Amongst similar types of computer the worst internal memory type is LPDDR3-SDRAM.
The narrowest personal computer of this age and type is 29mm wide and the widest is 660mm. At only 124 millimeters, the Chromebox2 G004U is quite narrow compared to most of the other computers that were released around the same time as the Chromebox2 G004U.
+4 More reasons for
With a height of only 42 millimeters, the Asus Chromebox2 G004U is quite short compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Chromebox2 G004U. Across all the personal computers that are a comparable age to the Chromebox2 G004U the heights range from 10mm to 500mm, and the average height is 190mm.
At only 124 millimeters, the Chromebox2 G004U is quite shallow compared to most of the other personal computers that were released more than a year ago. Across all the few processor core PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Chromebox2 G004U the depths range from 22mm to 1,100mm.
With a weight of only 600 grams, the Chromebox2 G004U is one of the lightest similar spec computers that are a comparable age to the Chromebox2 G004U amongst few processor core PCs of this age. Comparable spec desktop computers that were released one year ago have weights of between 140g and 16kg.
6 Reasons Against
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The Asus Chromebox2 G004U has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (only 900 megahertz) amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age. Personal computers of a similar age and spec to the Chromebox2 G004U have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 750MHz and 1,200MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.
Quite Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
The smallest max internal memory supported processor of desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the Chromebox2 G004U is 4GB and the biggest is 64GB. With a max internal memory supported processor of only 16 gigabytes, the Chromebox2 G004U has one of the smaller max internal memory supported processors amongst few processor core PCs of this age.
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
The average total storage capacity of few processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as the Chromebox2 G004U is 550GB, and the total storage capacity range from 8GB to 3TB. When compared to other personal computers of a comparable age and type to the Chromebox2 G004U, the total storage capacity of the Asus Chromebox2 G004U of only 16 gigabytes is one of the smallest.
There are a number of other 16GB total storage capacity PCs currently available which you might want to look at including the Asus CN60 (£138.16) which has better reviews.
If you would prefer a desktop computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the S500 SFF (£292.14) (500GB), or the M83 (£517.16) (500GB) both from Lenovo or the DELL OptiPlex 7010 (£178.80) (500GB).
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
Across all the PCs of this spec and age the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 3.9GHz. With a processor clock speed of only 2.1 gigahertz, the Chromebox2 G004U has one of the slower processor clock speeds amongst few processor core PCs of this age.
Alternative 2.1GHz processor clock speed desktop computers currently available that you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the BOXNUC5I3RYH (£238.36), or the BOXNUC5I3RYK (£242.36) both from Intel.
+3 More reasons against
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
The Chromebox2 G004U has one of the smaller maximum internal memory (only 4 gigabytes) amongst few processor core PCs of this age. The average maximum internal memory of computers that have been available for more than a year is 16GB, and the maximum internal memory range from 4GB to 32GB.
Only Supports Four Compatible Memory Cards
The Chromebox2 G004U has a greater number of compatible memory card than most desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to it. This computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most commonly supported compatible memory card supported by personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Chromebox2 G004U. The compatible memory cards "MMC", "SDHC" and "SDXC" are also supported by this personal computer.
