Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

Few processor core computers that were released more than a year ago have processor clock speeds of between 0.8GHz and 3.9GHz. At only 1.4 gigahertz, the VivoPC VM42 has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that have been available for a similar time to the VivoPC VM42.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 1.4GHz processor clock speed PCs currently available including the Asus Chromebox[plb_2403417_price] which is cheaper.

If this personal computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the Chromebox CXI2[pl_2928064_price] (1.5GHz and cheaper), or the Chromebox CXI2[pl_2954312_price] (1.5GHz and cheaper) both from Acer or the Asus E210[plb_2840755_price] (1.58GHz and cheaper).
