7 Reasons For

Asus Has Good Desktop Computer Reviews

Asus few processor core computers have good reviews on average and across all personal computers Asus is one of the better rated brands.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many few processor core computers that are a comparable age to it.

SSD Storage Medium

The VivoPC VM42 has a faster storage speed than most personal computers of a similar age and spec to it. This computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most few processor core 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.

This computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed across all computers of this age and type.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed amongst comparable types of computer.

Chart Edit

DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The VivoPC VM42 has a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than the DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type found on most few processor core computers that came out around the same time as it. Across all similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to the VivoPC VM42 the best internal memory type is DDR4-SDRAM and the worst is DDR3-SDRAM.

Chart Edit

Four USB 3.0 Ports

7 Reasons Against

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

The average on-board graphics adapter base frequency of few processor core computers that came out more than a year ago is 300MHz. The VivoPC VM42 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency (only 200 megahertz) compared to most of the other few processor core computers that are a comparable age to the VivoPC VM42.

Chart Edit

Only Two SATA Connectorss

Most few processor core computers that were released more than a year ago have between two and three SATA connectorss, including the Asus VivoPC VM42 which has two SATA connectorss.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

Personal computers of this type and age have total storage capacity of between 8GB and 3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 540GB. With a total storage capacity of only 32 gigabytes, the Asus VivoPC VM42 has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst few processor core computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Internal Memory

The average internal memory of desktop computers of this age and type is 4.7GB, and the internal memory range from 2GB to 16GB. With an internal memory of only 2 gigabytes, the Asus VivoPC VM42 has one of the smaller internal memory amongst computers of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 2GB memory PCs currently available including because of it's better review score, the Asus Chromebox (£134.69).

If you want a computer with a bigger internal memory then you might want to consider the Fujitsu Q520 (£572.58) (4GB).
