On average MSI few processor core PCs have good ratings compared to other brands as do all desktop computers produced by MSI.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many similar spec computers that have been available for more than a year.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
The slowest on-board graphics adapter base frequency of few processor core PCs that are a similar age to the Probox 130 is 100MHz and the fastest is 740MHz. The Probox 130 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter base frequency (350 megahertz) compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and spec.
Fairly Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
The Probox 130 has a fairly big max internal memory supported processor (32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year. The smallest max internal memory supported processor of few processor core PCs that were released one year ago is 4GB and the biggest is 64GB.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.6 gigahertz, the Probox 130 has one of the faster processor clock speeds amongst few processor core PCs of this age. The slowest processor clock speed of personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the Probox 130 is 1GHz, the fastest is 3.9GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.8GHz.
Personal computers with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth looking at include the Lenovo S500 SFF (£299.97) (3.7GHz), or the Asus M32AD (£441.04) (3.7GHz).
Quite Big Hard Drive Capacity
Across all the PCs of this age and spec the hard drive capacity range from 250GB to 2TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 630GB. With a hard drive capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the MSI Probox 130 has a fairly big hard drive capacity compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that were released around the same time as the Probox 130.
If you would prefer a computer with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might want to look at the Acer Revo One RL85 (£299.99) (2TB and higher rated).
+8 More reasons for
Quite Big Total Storage Capacity
Personal computers of this age and spec have total storage capacity of between 8GB and 3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 550GB. The Probox 130 has a quite big total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that came out around the same time as the Probox 130.
PCs with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth looking at include the Acer Revo One RL85 (£299.99) (2TB) which is also higher rated.
Two Mini PCI Express Slots
The Probox 130 has more mini PCI Express slots than most of the personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Probox 130. Most of the computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Probox 130 only have one mini PCI Express slot, however this desktop computer has two mini PCI Express slots.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on few processor core PCs that are a similar age to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on few processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as it.
Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory
The average maximum internal memory of computers of this spec and age is 16GB. The Probox 130 has one of the bigger maximum internal memory (32 gigabytes) amongst few processor core PCs of this age.
Four Processor Threads
The Probox 130 is a four processor thread desktop computer.
At only 101.7 millimeters, the MSI Probox 130 is quite narrow compared to most of the other computers of a comparable age and spec to the Probox 130. Personal computers that came out around the same time as the Probox 130 have widths of between 29mm and 660mm, and the average width is 180mm.
2 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many few processor core PCs that have been available for more than a year. 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.
The Probox 130 is one of the heavier desktop computers that are a comparable age to the Probox 130 (7.8 kilograms) amongst comparable spec PCs of this age. Across all the few processor core PCs that were released one year ago the weights range from 140g to 16kg, and the average weight is 4.7kg.
2 Other reasons to consider the MSI Probox 130
Released Over a Year Ago
This few processor core personal computer has been on the market for over a year.
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 4 gigabytes, the Probox 130 has a pretty standard internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers of this spec and age.
If this desktop computer internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Acer Aspire XC-605 (6GB), or the Asus M32AD (£441.04) (6GB).
