7 Reasons For

Good Brand

We calculated the average reviews for all Asus personal computers and also specifically for Asus few processor cores computers and found that in both cases Asus had good reviews compared to other brands.

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

Most PCs of this spec and age have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys, including the Asus UN42 which has four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Media

The Asus UN42 has an SSD storage media which is faster than the HDD storage media found on most computers that have been on the market for around the same time as 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.

This desktop computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed amongst all similar spec PCs that were released around the same time as the UN42.

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

L3 Processor Cache Level

This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on computers of a similar type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Four USB 3.0 Ports

The Asus UN42 has more USB 3.0 ports than most of the desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to the UN42. Most of the personal computers of this age and type only have between one and three USB 3.0 ports, however this Asus PC has four USB 3.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Has One Cables Included

The number of included cables found on the Asus UN42 is more than most desktop computers of a similar age and spec to it. This personal computer has an AC cables included, which is the most frequently found cables included found on computers that came out more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Across all the few processor cores computers that were released around the same time as the UN42 the weights range from 140g to 16kg. The Asus UN42 is one of the lighter few processor cores computers that are a comparable age to the UN42 (only 1,000 gram) amongst few processor cores computers of this age.

Chart Edit

10 Reasons Against

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

At only 16 gigabytes, the Asus UN42 has a quite small maximum internal memory supported by processor compared to most of the other few processor cores computers that were released around the same time as the UN42. Across all the few processor cores computers that are a similar age to the UN42 the maximum internal memory supported by processors range from 4GB to 64GB, and the average maximum internal memory supported by processor is 29GB.

Chart Edit

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

The average on-board graphics adapter base frequency of computers of this age and type is 310MHz. The Asus UN42 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency (only 200 megahertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that were launched around the same time as the UN42.

Chart Edit

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

The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max) of computers of a similar age and type to the UN42 is 750MHz and the fastest is 1,200MHz. The Asus UN42 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max) (only 1,000 megahertz) compared to most of the other few processor cores computers that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Only Two Number of SATA III Connectorss

The Asus UN42 is a two number of SATA III connectors desktop computer. Most of the other few processor cores computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the UN42 have between two and three number of SATA III connectorss.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Internal Memory

Across all the few processor cores computers that have been around for a similar time to the UN42 the internal memorys range from 2GB to 16GB, and the average internal memory is 4.7GB. The internal memory of the Asus UN42 of only 2 gigabytes is one of the smallest amongst few processor cores computers that have been available for a similar time to the UN42.

Other 2GB memory computers currently available that you might also want to look at include the Acer Chromebox CXI2 which has better reviews.

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

Few processor cores computers that have been on the market for more than a year have total storage capacitys of between 8GB and 3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 570GB. The Asus UN42 has one of the smaller total storage capacitys (only 32 gigabytes) amongst few processor cores computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Frequency

With a processor frequency of only 1.4 gigahertz, the Asus UN42 has a very slow processor frequency compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age. The processor frequencys of similar spec personal computers that were released around the same time as the UN42 range from 0.8GHz to 3.9GHz, and the average processor frequency is 2.9GHz.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 1.4GHz processor clock speed PCs currently available including the Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 which has better reviews.
