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

Most computers that are a similar age to the UN42 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 few processor cores computers that have been available for a comparable time 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 across all desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to the UN42.

An HDD storage media is the worst storage speed across comparable types of PC.
