This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many computers of a similar age and spec to it.
Asus Computers Have Good Reviews
On average Asus few processor core PCs have good ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all PCs built by Asus.
Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity
Desktop computers of this age and spec have total storage capacity of between 8GB and 3TB. The Asus VM60 has a quite big total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other desktop computers that came out around the same time as the VM60.
Computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth looking at include the Acer Revo One RL85 (£259.00) (2TB) which also has a higher rating.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many desktop computers of this age and spec.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Asus VM60 is more than most personal computers that have been available for around the same time as it. The most commonly found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this desktop computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this personal computer.
The weights of comparable spec computers that have been around for more than a year range from 140g to 16kg. The Asus VM60 is fairly light (only 1.2 kilograms) compared to most of the other personal computers that are a similar age to the VM60.

4 Reasons Against
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of only 1.8 gigahertz, the Asus VM60 has one of the slower processor clock speeds amongst similar spec personal computers of this age. Computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the VM60 have processor clock speeds of between 1GHz and 3.9GHz.
If this computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the VM62N (£459.52) (1.9GHz), or the VC62B (£199.99) (1.9GHz) both from Asus.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on few processor core PCs that are a similar 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.
Only 2 Audio Output Channel
The Asus VM60 has a better audio output than most similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to it. This computer has a 2 audio output channel, whereas most computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it have a 2.1 audio output channel. Across all comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to the VM60 the best audio output is 8.1 and the worst is 1.
Only Supports Two Compatible Memory Cards
The Asus VM60 has a greater number of compatible memory card than most comparable spec computers that have been around for more than a year. This PC supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most frequently supported compatible memory card supported by personal computers that are a similar age to the VM60. The compatible memory card "MMC" is also supported by this personal computer.

3 Other reasons to consider the Asus VM60
Released Over a Year Ago
This few processor core personal computer has been on the market for over a year.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the Asus VM60 has a fairly typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been available for more than a year.
If this desktop computer hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Lenovo H50 (£326.72) (1TB), or the Acer Aspire XC-705 (£314.99) (1TB).
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the Asus VM60 has a pretty typical internal memory compared to most of the other computers of this spec and age.
If this desktop computer internal memory is too small for you then you might want to consider the Aspire XC-605 (£557.95) (6GB), or the Aspire XC-605 (£423.67) (6GB) both from Acer or the Asus M32AD (£441.04) (6GB).
