9 Reasons For
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many PCs of a comparable type and age to it.
Asus Computers Have Good Reviews
We calculated the average reviews for all Asus PCs and also specifically for Asus medium processor core computers and found that in both cases Asus had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.
Quite Big Hard Drive Capacity
The Asus G20AJ has one of the bigger hard drive capacity (1,000 gigabyte) amongst PCs of this age. The smallest hard drive capacity of desktop computers that have been available for more than a year is 1GB and the biggest is 3TB.
We compared this desktop computer to all the other 1TB hard drive capacity computers and we think cheaper computers such as the Thinkstation P500 (£1,347.00), and the Thinkstation P500 (£799.00) both from Lenovo or the HP Z230 (£569.99) is also worth considering.
Desktop computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might also be worth considering include the Alpha (2TB and cheaper), or the X51 (£739.00) (2TB and cheaper) both from Alienware.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for more than a year.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on computers of this spec and age.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many PCs that came out around the same time as it.
+4 More reasons for
7.1 Audio Output Channel
The Asus G20AJ has a 7.1 audio output channel which is better than the 5.1 audio output channel found on most medium processor core computers that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
This personal computer's audio output (7.1) is actually the best audio output across all computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
A 5.1 audio output channel is the worst audio output across similar types of personal computer.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on medium processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to it.
At only 104 millimeters, the Asus G20AJ is quite narrow compared to most of the other PCs of a similar age and type to the G20AJ. The narrowest desktop computer of a similar type and age to the G20AJ is 33mm wide, the widest is 510mm, and the average width is 190mm.
8 Reasons Against
Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
At only 2 gigabytes, the Asus G20AJ has a fairly small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been available for a similar time to the G20AJ. Medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the G20AJ have discrete graphics adapter memory capacities of between 1GB and 8.2TB.
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
Computers of a comparable age and type to the G20AJ have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 700MHz and 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,100 megahertz, the Asus G20AJ has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many desktop computers of a comparable spec and age to it. 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.
Other HDD PCs currently available which you might also want to look at include cheaper personal computers such as the Fujitsu W550 (£879.97), or the MSI B85C-060EU (£810.63).
If you are looking for a personal computer with a faster storage speed then you might also want to look at the EliteDesk 800 G1 (SSD and cheaper), the EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini (SSD and cheaper), or the 800 G2 (£826.80) (SSD and cheaper) all from HP.
The price range of computers of this type and age is from £99 to £2,194. We think that this medium processor core computer looks expensive compared to other computers of this type and age.
+5 More reasons against
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This desktop computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on similar spec computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
Quite Small Solid-State Drive Capacity
Across all the medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as the G20AJ the solid-state drive capacities range from 8GB to 1TB, and the average solid-state drive capacity is 210GB. When compared to other similar spec PCs that were released one year ago, the solid-state drive capacity of the Asus G20AJ of only 8 gigabytes is one of the smallest.
Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The discrete graphics adapter memory of the Asus G20AJ of only 1,024 megabyte is one of the smallest amongst desktop computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the G20AJ. Medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the G20AJ have discrete graphics adapter memory of between 4.9MB and 8.2GB.
Only One 3.5" Bay
The Asus G20AJ is a one 3.5" bay personal computer.
4 Other reasons to consider the Asus G20AJ
Released Over a Year Ago
This PC has been on the market for over a year.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The Asus G20AJ has a relatively standard processor clock speed (3.2 gigahertz) compared to most of the other desktop computers of this type and age.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3.2GHz processor clock speed computers currently available including cheaper personal computers such as the HP Z230 (£874.84).
If this Asus desktop computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the HP 490 G3 MT (£1,271.72) (3.4GHz and cheaper).
Average Total Storage Capacity
The Asus G20AJ has a relatively typical total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to the G20AJ.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 1TB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available including the Thinkstation P500 (£799.00), or the Thinkstation P500 (£1,347.00) both from Lenovo or the HP Z230 (£569.99) which is cheaper.
Desktop computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth considering include the Asus G20AJ (£775.98) (1TB and cheaper).
