7 Reasons For

Good Brand

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

64-Bit Processor Operating Modes

This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating modes, which is typical of many computers of a comparable spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

Four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports Quantitys

The Chromebox CXI2 is a four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantity desktop computer. Most of the other comparable spec PCs that were released more than a year ago have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Media

The Chromebox CXI2 has a Flash storage media which is faster than most personal computers of this age and spec. Most few processor cores computers that have been around for around the same time as it have an HDD storage media. Flash Drives 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. The worst storage speed of all few processor cores computers that have been around for around the same time as the Chromebox CXI2 is HDD and the best is SSD.

There are a number of alternative Flash PCs currently available that you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Lenovo Thinkcentre M53 Tiny[plb_2978997_price].

9 Reasons Against

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

The slowest on-board graphics adapter base frequency of personal computers of a similar age and type to the Chromebox CXI2 is 100MHz, the fastest is 740MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 310MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of only 100 megahertz, the Acer Chromebox CXI2 has a very slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other few processor cores computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Chromebox CXI2.

Chart Edit

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

The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max)s of computers of this age and spec range from 750MHz to 1,200MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max) is 1,100MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max) of only 800 megahertz, the Chromebox CXI2 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max) compared to most of the other few processor cores computers that are a similar age to the Chromebox CXI2.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

The Chromebox CXI2 has a fairly small maximum internal memory supported by processor (only 16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that were launched more than a year ago. Across all the similar spec desktop computers that came out around the same time as the Chromebox CXI2 the maximum internal memory supported by processors range from 4GB to 64GB, and the average maximum internal memory supported by processor is 28GB.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

Few processor cores computers that were released more than a year ago have total storage capacitys of between 8GB and 3TB. When compared to other few processor cores computers that were released one year ago, the Chromebox CXI2's total storage capacity of only 16 gigabytes is one of the smallest.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Internal Memory

The internal memorys of desktop computers of this age and spec range from 2GB to 16GB. At only 2 gigabytes, the Chromebox CXI2 has a very small internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar age and type to the Chromebox CXI2.

If this Acer computer internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Asus D310MT[plb_3149996_price] (4GB) which also has a higher rating.
