6 Reasons For

Good Brand

Acer few processor cores computers have good reviews on average and across all computers Acer is one of the superior manufacturers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Modes

This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating modes, which is typical of many computers of this type and age.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Media

The Chromebox CXI has a faster storage speed than most computers of a comparable spec and age to it. This Acer personal computer has an SSD storage media, whereas most few processor cores computers that have been available for a comparable time to it have an HDD storage media. 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.

This desktop computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed across all computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Chromebox CXI.

An HDD storage media is the worst storage speed amongst comparable types of desktop computer.

8 Reasons Against

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

With a maximum internal memory supported by processor of only 16 gigabytes, the Chromebox CXI has one of the smaller maximum internal memory supported by processors amongst personal computers of this age. Few processor cores computers that were launched more than two years ago have maximum internal memory supported by processors of between 4GB and 32GB.

Chart Edit

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of only 200 megahertz, the Acer Chromebox CXI has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter base frequencys amongst few processor cores computers of this age. The average on-board graphics adapter base frequency of similar spec PCs that were released around the same time as the Chromebox CXI is 350MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter base frequencys range from 200MHz to 800MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency (max)

With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max) of only 1,000 megahertz, the Chromebox CXI has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max) compared to most of the other personal computers of this spec and age. Few processor cores computers that were released more than two years ago have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max)s of between 750MHz and 1,200MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

The Chromebox CXI has a very small total storage capacity (only 16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other few processor cores computers that have been on the market for more than two years. The total storage capacitys of desktop computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Chromebox CXI range from 4GB to 2TB, and the average total storage capacity is 550GB.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Frequency

Computers of this spec and age have processor frequencys of between 1GHz and 3.9GHz, and the average processor frequency is 2.8GHz. At only 1.4 gigahertz, the Chromebox CXI has a fairly slow processor frequency compared to most of the other few processor cores computers that were released more than two years ago.

Other 1.4GHz processor clock speed computers currently available that you might also want to consider include the Zotac ZBOX BI320[plb_2519448_price] which has better reviews.

If you are looking for a personal computer with a faster processor frequency then you might want to consider the Zotac ZBOX-OI520-P-BE[plb_2559789_price] (1.6GHz and higher rated).
