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.
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.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC 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.
Four USB 3.0 Ports
The Asus UN42 has more USB 3.0 ports than most of the few processor cores computers that came out more than a year ago. This Asus computer is a four USB 3.0 port desktop computer compared to most of the personal computers of this spec and age which only have between one and three USB 3.0 ports.
Has One Cables Included
The Asus UN42 has a greater number of included cables than most desktop computers of this spec and age. This computer has an AC cables included, which is the most frequently found cables included found on similar spec computers that came out around the same time as the UN42.
+2 More reasons for
The lightest computer that was released more than a year ago is 140g heavy, the heaviest is 16kg, and the average weight is 4.7kg. The Asus UN42 is one of the lighter PCs of a comparable type and age to the UN42 (only 1,000 gram) amongst computers of this age.
12 Reasons Against
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor
Across all the personal computers of this type and age the maximum internal memory supported by processors range from 4GB to 64GB. At only 16 gigabytes, the Asus UN42 has a fairly small maximum internal memory supported by processor compared to most of the other few processor cores computers that were released one year ago.
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
The on-board graphics adapter base frequencys of desktop computers of a comparable age and type to the UN42 range from 100MHz to 740MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 310MHz. At only 200 megahertz, the Asus UN42 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that were released one year ago.
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency (max)
The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max) of PCs of this age and type is 1,100MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max)s range from 750MHz to 1,200MHz. At only 1,000 megahertz, the Asus UN42 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max) compared to most of the other personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the UN42.
Only Two Number of SATA III Connectorss
The Asus UN42 is a two number of SATA III connectors computer. Most of the other PCs of a similar spec and age to the UN42 have between two and three number of SATA III connectorss.
+9 More reasons against
Only Two Total Number of SATA Connectorss
Most computers of this type and age have between two and three total number of SATA connectorss, including the Asus UN42 which has two total number of SATA connectorss.
Quite Small Internal Memory
The Asus UN42 has one of the smallest internal memorys (only 2 gigabytes) amongst few processor cores computers of this age. Across all the PCs of this age and spec the internal memorys range from 2GB to 16GB.
Computers with a bigger internal memory that might be worth looking at include the HP 280[plb_3167136_price] (4GB) which also has a higher rating.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
Across all the personal computers of this type and age the total storage capacitys range from 8GB to 3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 570GB. The Asus UN42 has a fairly small total storage capacity (only 64 gigabytes) compared to most of the other few processor cores computers that are a similar age to the UN42.
Quite Slow Processor Frequency
When compared to other personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the UN42, the Asus UN42's processor frequency of only 1.4 gigahertz is one of the slowest. The average processor frequency of personal computers of this type and age is 2.9GHz.
Other 1.4GHz processor clock speed personal computers currently available which you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Apple Mac Mini Late 2014[plb_2547899_price].
