Acer Chromebox CXI Unboxing
Acer Chromebox CXI Review
Unboxing Acer Chromebox (CXI)
Acer Chromebox CXI-i34GKM Desktop with Keyboard and Mouse | Review/Test

6 Reasons For

Acer Has Good Reviews for Its Computers

Few processor cores computers manufactured by Acer have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all personal computers (not just few processor cores computers) and found that Acer also has good reviews across its entire range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Modes

This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating modes, which is the most commonly supported processor operating modes on comparable spec desktop computers that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Four Total Number of SATA Connectorss

The Chromebox CXI has more total number of SATA connectorss than most of the computers of a similar spec and age to the Chromebox CXI. This Acer personal computer is a four total number of SATA connectors computer compared to most of the few processor cores computers that were released one year ago which only have between two and three total number of SATA connectorss.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

The average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of few processor cores computers that have been around for around the same time as the Chromebox CXI is 3.1GB, and the maximum on-board graphics adapter memorys range from 1GB to 16GB. The Chromebox CXI has one of the bigger maximum on-board graphics adapter memorys (2 gigabytes) amongst few processor cores computers of this age.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Media

The Acer Chromebox CXI has an SSD storage media which is faster than the HDD storage media found on most PCs of a comparable age and type to 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 media is actually the best storage speed amongst all similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to the Chromebox CXI.

Amongst similar types of desktop computer the worst storage speed is HDD.

DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The Acer Chromebox CXI has a newer internal memory type than most few processor cores computers that were released more than a year ago. This Acer computer has a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most few processor cores computers that have been around for around the same time as it have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type. The worst internal memory type of all few processor cores computers that have been around for around the same time as the Chromebox CXI is DDR3-SDRAM and the best is DDR4-SDRAM.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

Few processor cores computers that have been around for around the same time as the Chromebox CXI have maximum internal memory supported by processors of between 4GB and 64GB, and the average maximum internal memory supported by processor is 28GB. With a maximum internal memory supported by processor of only 16 gigabytes, the Acer Chromebox CXI has a fairly small maximum internal memory supported by processor compared to most of the other few processor cores computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Chromebox CXI.

Chart Edit

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

The Chromebox CXI has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency (only 200 megahertz) compared to most of the other few processor cores computers that are a similar age to the Chromebox CXI. Across all the PCs that are a comparable age to the Chromebox CXI the on-board graphics adapter base frequencys range from 100MHz to 740MHz.

Chart Edit

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

Across all the similar spec personal computers that were launched more than a year ago the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max)s range from 750MHz to 1,200MHz. At only 1,000 megahertz, the Chromebox CXI has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max) compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to the Chromebox CXI.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

The average total storage capacity of personal computers that came out more than a year ago is 560GB, and the total storage capacitys range from 8GB to 3TB. With a total storage capacity of only 16 gigabytes, the Acer Chromebox CXI has one of the smallest total storage capacitys amongst comparable spec computers of this age.

We compared this PC to all the other 16GB total storage capacity computers and we think the Asus Chromebox[plb_2403418_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Quite Slow Processor Frequency

The slowest processor frequency of computers that came out around the same time as the Chromebox CXI is 0.8GHz and the fastest is 3.9GHz. With a processor frequency of only 1.9 gigahertz, the Chromebox CXI has a quite slow processor frequency compared to most of the other few processor cores computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Chromebox CXI.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory

The smallest maximum internal memory of comparable spec personal computers that were launched more than a year ago is 4GB and the biggest is 64GB. With a maximum internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the Acer Chromebox CXI has a fairly small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other few processor cores computers that are a similar age to the Chromebox CXI.

Chart Edit

Very Small Solid-State Drive Capacity

Computers of a similar age and spec to the Chromebox CXI have solid-state drive capacitys of between 16GB and 520GB. With a solid-state drive capacity of only 16 gigabytes, the Chromebox CXI has a quite small solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other few processor cores computers that have been available for around the same time as the Chromebox CXI.
