This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many similar spec computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
The Asus VM62 has a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than the DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type found on most few processor core PCs that were released more than a year ago.
This desktop computer's internal memory type (DDR3L-SDRAM) is actually the best internal memory type across all desktop computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VM62.
Across comparable types of desktop computer the worst internal memory type is LPDDR3-SDRAM.
Has One Memory Slot

8 Reasons Against
Quite Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
With a max internal memory supported processor of only 16 gigabytes, the Asus VM62 has one of the smaller max internal memory supported processors amongst computers of this age. The smallest max internal memory supported processor of PCs of a similar spec and age to the VM62 is 4GB and the biggest is 64GB.
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
At only 200 megahertz, the Asus VM62 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable age and type to the VM62. Similar spec PCs that were released around the same time as the VM62 have on-board graphics adapter base frequencies of between 100MHz and 740MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 310MHz.
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
Across all the PCs of this type and age the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 750MHz to 1,200MHz. At only 1,000 megahertz, the Asus VM62 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that were released one year ago.
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
The Asus VM62 has one of the slower processor clock speeds (only 1.7 gigahertz) amongst few processor core PCs of this age. The slowest processor clock speed of personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the VM62 is 1GHz, the fastest is 3.9GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.8GHz.
Other 1.7GHz processor clock speed PCs currently available which you might also want to look at include the Asus VC62B which has better reviews.
If you would prefer a desktop computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to consider the HP Pavilion Mini 300 (2.2GHz) which also has a higher rating.
+5 More reasons against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on personal computers of this age and spec. 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.
Very Slow Hard Drive Speed
The average hard drive speed of desktop computers of a similar spec and age to the VM62 is 6,900 RPM. At only 5,400 revolutions per minute, the Asus VM62 has a quite slow hard drive speed compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to the VM62.
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
The Asus VM62 is a two USB 2.0 port desktop computer. Most of the other desktop computers that are a similar age to the VM62 have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.
Only Supports Four Compatible Memory Cards
The number of compatible memory card supported by the Asus VM62 is more than most computers of a comparable type and age to it. This desktop computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most frequently supported compatible memory card supported by comparable spec personal computers that were released more than a year ago. The compatible memory cards "MMC", "SDHC" and "SDXC" are also supported by this computer.
