On average MSI personal computers are rated 83%, which is in the top 34% of all computer brands that we have analysed.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on few processor core computers that came out more than two years ago.
SSD Storage Medium
The MSI DC111 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most few processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as it. 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.
An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed amongst all desktop computers of this age and type.
Amongst similar types of computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many desktop computers of a similar age and type to it.
The widths of personal computers of a similar age and spec to the DC111 range from 3.4mm to 390mm. At only 150.93 millimeters, the MSI DC111 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar spec and age to the DC111.
Across all the desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the DC111 the weights range from 600g to 16kg. When compared to other computers that were launched around the same time as the DC111, the MSI DC111's weight of only 900 grams is one of the lightest.
+2 More reasons for
Personal computers of a similar type and age to the DC111 have depths of between 27mm and 460mm, and the average depth is 290mm. When compared to other desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the DC111 that we have checked, the depth of the MSI DC111 of only 34.94 millimeters is one of the shallowest.
10 Reasons Against
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of personal computers of this age and spec is 1,100MHz. The MSI DC111 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (only 1,000 megahertz) compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the DC111.
Quite Small Internal Memory
At only 2 gigabytes, the MSI DC111 has a quite small internal memory compared to most of the other computers of this type and age. The average internal memory of PCs of this age and spec is 4.9GB.
There are a number of other 2GB memory personal computers currently available which you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Acer Chromebox CXI.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
At only 64 gigabytes, the MSI DC111 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other few processor core computers that were launched more than two years ago. Across all the desktop computers that have been available for a comparable time to the DC111 the total storage capacity range from 4GB to 2TB.
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
At only 1.8 gigahertz, the MSI DC111 has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the DC111. The slowest processor clock speed of few processor core computers that were released more than two years ago is 1GHz, the fastest is 3.9GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.9GHz.
+7 More reasons against
Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed
At only 1,333 megahertz, the MSI DC111 has a fairly slow memory clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers of this spec and age. The average memory clock speed of computers of a similar age and type to the DC111 is 1,600MHz, and the memory clock speeds range from 800MHz to 1,600MHz.
Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory
The smallest maximum internal memory of desktop computers that came out more than two years ago is 4GB, the biggest is 32GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 16GB. With a maximum internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the MSI DC111 has one of the smallest maximum internal memory amongst comparable spec computers of this age.
Only Supports Three Compatible Memory Cards
The number of compatible memory card supported by the MSI DC111 is more than most PCs that have been around for more than two years. This desktop computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most commonly supported compatible memory card supported by few processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the DC111. The compatible memory cards "Memory Stick (MS)" and "MMC" are also supported by this personal computer.
Only Two Processor Threads
Most PCs of this type and age have between one and three processor threads, including the MSI DC111 which has two processor threads.
Quite Small Processor Cache
The smallest processor cache of PCs that have been available for a similar time to the DC111 is 0.51MB, the biggest is 4MB, and the average processor cache is 2.9MB. With a processor cache of only 2 megabytes, the MSI DC111 has one of the smaller processor caches amongst comparable spec computers of this age.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the MSI DC111 is more than most computers that have been around 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 1x SO-DIMM are also found on this personal computer.
