10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on similar spec computers that came out around the same time as it.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most frequently found EPEAT compliance on medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it.
7.1 Audio Output Channel
This desktop computer has a 7.1 audio output channel, which is the most commonly found audio output channel on PCs of this type and age.
+4 More reasons for
With a depth of only 210 millimeters, the Asus E810 is fairly shallow compared to most of the other PCs of this age and spec. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the E810 the depths range from 31mm to 590mm.
Across all the PCs of this age and type the weights range from 38g to 100kg, and the average weight is 7.5kg. When compared to other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the E810, the Asus E810's weight of only 800 grams is one of the lightest.
The shortest medium processor core desktop computer that has been available for a comparable time to the E810 is 9.8mm high, the tallest is 560mm, and the average height is 300mm. The Asus E810 is one of the shortest computers of this age and type (only 27 millimeters) amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age.
14 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The Asus E810 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port PC.
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
Across all the desktop computers of this age and type the total storage capacity range from 4GB to 3.6TB. When compared to other comparable spec computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the E810 that we have assessed, the total storage capacity of the Asus E810 of only 4 gigabytes is one of the smallest.
Desktop computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth considering include the Asus CHROMEBIT (£89.99) (16GB), or the MeLE PCG09 (32GB) which is also higher rated.
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
The slowest processor clock speed of similar spec desktop computers that came out more than a year ago is 1.3GHz and the fastest is 4GHz. At only 2 gigahertz, the Asus E810 has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the E810.
If this medium processor core desktop computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (£353.43) (2.2GHz) which also has a higher rating.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than a year ago. 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 you are looking for a PC with a faster storage speed then you might also want to consider the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini (£595.00) (SSD).
+11 More reasons against
Very Small Internal Memory
The smallest internal memory of medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the E810 is 2GB and the biggest is 64GB. At only 4 gigabytes, the Asus E810 has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago.
If you want a desktop computer with a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the DELL 270 (£349.99) (6GB).
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
The average hard drive capacity of PCs of this age and spec is 930GB. At only 500 gigabytes, the Asus E810 has a quite small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other computers of a similar age and type to the E810.
If this desktop computer hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the HP 600 G2 (£644.40) (1TB).
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
At only 1.024 gigabytes, the Asus E810 has a quite small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other desktop computers that are a similar age to the E810. Across all the computers that were released one year ago the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1GB to 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 4.3GB.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Asus E810 is more than most computers of a similar age and spec to it. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this Asus desktop computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this desktop computer.
Only Three USB 2.0 Ports
The Asus E810 is a three USB 2.0 port desktop computer.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
Most personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the E810 have between one and seven USB 3.0 ports, including the Asus E810 which has two USB 3.0 ports.
Only One DisplayPort
The Asus E810 is a one DisplayPort computer. Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the E810 have between one and three DisplayPorts.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
Across all the medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 260GB. The Asus E810 has one of the smaller maximum internal memory (only 16 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
With a maximum turbo frequency of only 3 gigahertz, the Asus E810 has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies amongst similar spec computers of this age. The slowest maximum turbo frequency of desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the E810 is 1.8GHz, the fastest is 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
At only 32,768 megabytes, the Asus E810 has a fairly small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other computers that have been available for more than a year. Across all the personal computers of a similar age and type to the E810 the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 790GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 75GB.
