Asus Personal Computers Have Good Reviews

Few processor cores computers produced by Asus have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all desktop computers (not just few processor cores computers) and found that Asus also has good reviews across its entire range.

Chart

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

Most few processor cores computers that were launched around the same time as the CN60 have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys, including the Asus CN60 which has four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Media

The Asus CN60 has a faster storage speed than most few processor cores computers that are a comparable age to it. This personal computer has an SSD storage media, whereas most desktop computers of this age and spec 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.

An SSD storage media is actually the best storage speed amongst all few processor cores computers that are a comparable age to the CN60.

An HDD storage media is the worst storage speed across similar types of personal computer.

Alternative SSD computers currently available which you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Asus GR8[plb_3186870_price].
