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].
Has One Cables Included
The Asus VivoPC VM42 has a greater number of included cables than most personal 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 of a comparable age and spec to the VivoPC VM42.
The lightest personal computer of a comparable spec and age to the VivoPC VM42 is 530g heavy, the heaviest is 14kg, and the average weight is 4.8kg. With a weight of only 1.2 kilograms, the Asus VivoPC VM42 is one of the lighter desktop computers of this age and spec amongst desktop computers of this age.
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.
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.
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.
+7 More reasons against
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.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The smallest total storage capacity of few processor cores computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the VivoPC VM42 is 4GB, the biggest is 2TB, and the average total storage capacity is 540GB. At only 32 gigabytes, the VivoPC VM42 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other few processor cores computers that were released more than two years ago.
Quite Slow Processor Frequency
At only 1.4 gigahertz, the VivoPC VM42 has a very slow processor frequency compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable spec and age to the VivoPC VM42. Desktop computers that were released around the same time as the VivoPC VM42 have processor frequencys of between 1GHz and 3.9GHz.
If this Asus PC processor frequency is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the Zoostorm Intel Celeron 1037U[plb_2784636_price] (1.8GHz and higher rated).
Only Two Processor Threadss
The VivoPC VM42 is a two processor threads PC.
Quite Small Processor Cache
The smallest processor cache of computers of a similar age and spec to the VivoPC VM42 is 0.51MB, the biggest is 6MB, and the average processor cache is 2.9MB. The Asus VivoPC VM42 has one of the smaller processor caches (only 2 megabytes) amongst computers of this age.
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys
Most few processor cores computers that have been available for a comparable time to the VivoPC VM42 have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports quantitys, including the Asus VivoPC VM42 which has two USB 2.0 ports quantitys.
