Asus has good average reviews for its few processor core computers as well as across its entire PC range compared to other brands.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for more than two years.
Quite Big Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the VivoPC VM62 has one of the bigger hard drive capacity amongst few processor core computers of this age. The hard drive capacity of personal computers of this age and spec range from 250GB to 2TB.
Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity
When compared to other few processor core computers that were launched more than two years ago that we have assessed, the VivoPC VM62's total storage capacity of 1,128 gigabyte is one of the biggest. The smallest total storage capacity of few processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the VivoPC VM62 is 4GB, the biggest is 2TB, and the average total storage capacity is 560GB.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
The average internal memory of comparable spec computers that have been available for around the same time as the VivoPC VM62 is 4.9GB. At 8 gigabytes, the VivoPC VM62 has a fairly big internal memory compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that were released more than two years ago.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on few processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to it.
+5 More reasons for
DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
The Asus VivoPC VM62 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 were launched more than two years ago.
A DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type is in fact the best internal memory type across all desktop computers that have been on the market for more than two years.
The worst internal memory type across comparable types of PC is DDR3-SDRAM.
Has One Memory Slot
The VivoPC VM62 has a greater number of memory slots than most few processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to it. The most commonly found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this Asus personal computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this PC.
Few processor core computers that are a similar age to the VivoPC VM62 have heights of between 22mm and 450mm. At only 56.2 millimeters, the VivoPC VM62 is fairly short compared to most of the other PCs of a comparable spec and age to the VivoPC VM62.
The Asus VivoPC VM62 is fairly light (only 1.2 kilograms) compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been available for a similar time to the VivoPC VM62. The average weight of comparable spec desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the VivoPC VM62 is 5.4kg.
8 Reasons Against
Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
Desktop computers of this spec and age have max internal memory supported processors of between 4GB and 32GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 29GB. With a max internal memory supported processor of only 16 gigabytes, the Asus VivoPC VM62 has one of the smaller max internal memory supported processors amongst similar spec PCs of this age.
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
Across all the computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the VivoPC VM62 the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 200MHz to 800MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 350MHz. The Asus VivoPC VM62 has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter base frequencies (only 200 megahertz) amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age.
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,000 megahertz, the VivoPC VM62 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VivoPC VM62. Personal computers of this type and age have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 750MHz and 1,200MHz.
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
At only 1.7 gigahertz, the VivoPC VM62 has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other similar spec computers that were released more than two years ago. The processor clock speeds of few processor core computers that were released more than two years ago range from 1GHz to 3.9GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.9GHz.
If you want a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the Zoostorm Intel Celeron 1037U (£199.98) (1.8GHz) which also has a higher rating.
+5 More reasons against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD+SSD, which is typical of many computers of a comparable type 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.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
The maximum turbo frequencies of computers of a comparable spec and age to the VivoPC VM62 range from 1.8GHz to 5GHz. At only 2.7 gigahertz, the VivoPC VM62 has a quite slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other desktop computers that came out around the same time as the VivoPC VM62.
Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory
With a maximum internal memory of only 16,384 megabytes, the VivoPC VM62 has one of the smallest maximum internal memory amongst few processor core computers of this age. PCs of this age and type have maximum internal memory of between 8.1GB and 33GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 30GB.
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
The VivoPC VM62 is a two USB 2.0 port personal computer.
