4 Reasons For

Asus Has Good Reviews for Its Computers

Asus few processor cores computers have good reviews on average and across all desktop computers Asus is one of the superior brands.

SSD Storage Media

The VivoPC VM42 has an SSD storage media which is faster than most similar spec desktop computers that have been available for a comparable time to it. Most similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to it 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 in fact the best storage speed across all few processor cores computers that have been available for a similar time to the VivoPC VM42.

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

It may also be worth considering one of the other SSD personal computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the MSI DC111[plb_2580346_price].

10 Reasons Against

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

At only 16 gigabytes, the Asus VivoPC VM42 has a fairly small maximum internal memory supported by processor compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and spec. The smallest maximum internal memory supported by processor of personal computers of a comparable type and age to the VivoPC VM42 is 4GB and the biggest is 32GB.

Chart Edit

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

The VivoPC VM42 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max) (only 1,000 megahertz) compared to most of the other desktop computers that came out more than two years ago. Across all the few processor cores computers that are a comparable age to the VivoPC VM42 the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max)s range from 750MHz to 1,200MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max) is 1,100MHz.

Chart Edit

Only Two Number of SATA III Connectorss

The VivoPC VM42 is a two number of SATA III connectors personal computer. Most of the other PCs of a comparable age and type to the VivoPC VM42 have between two and three number of SATA III connectorss.

Only Two Total Number of SATA Connectorss

The Asus VivoPC VM42 is a two total number of SATA connectors computer.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Internal Memory

When compared to other comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the VivoPC VM42 that we have assessed, the Asus VivoPC VM42's internal memory of only 2 gigabytes is one of the smallest. Across all the few processor cores computers that have been available for around the same time as the VivoPC VM42 the internal memorys range from 1GB to 16GB, and the average internal memory is 5.1GB.

We compared all the other 2GB memory desktop computers to this computer and we think because of it's better review score, the MSI DC111[plb_2580346_price] is also worth considering.

PCs with a bigger internal memory that might be worth considering include the Zoostorm Intel Celeron 1037U[plb_2784636_price] (4GB) which is also higher rated.
