5 Reasons For

Asus Has Good Personal Computer Reviews

Asus is one of the better rated personal computer brands according to average expert and user reviews, and Asus also has good ratings for its few processor cores computers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Modes

This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating modes, which is the most frequently supported processor operating modes on similar spec desktop computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Media

The Asus VM42 has an SSD storage media which is faster than the HDD storage media found on most personal computers that were released in the last year. 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 personal computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed across all few processor cores computers that came out around the same time as the VM42.

The worst storage speed amongst similar types of personal computer is HDD.

Four USB 3.0 Ports

Most recently released comparable spec computers have between two and five USB 3.0 ports, including the Asus VM42 which has four USB 3.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Few processor cores computers that have been available for the last year have weights of between 350g and 11kg, and the average weight is 5kg. The Asus VM42 is quite light (only 1.2 kilograms) compared to most of the other newly released computers.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

The maximum internal memory supported by processors of recently released few processor cores computers range from 8GB to 64GB, and the average maximum internal memory supported by processor is 44GB. The Asus VM42 has one of the smaller maximum internal memory supported by processors (only 16 gigabytes) amongst few processor cores computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

Similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to the VM42 have on-board graphics adapter base frequencys of between 100MHz and 690MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 330MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of only 200 megahertz, the Asus VM42 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other newly released comparable spec personal computers.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

The Asus VM42 has one of the smaller total storage capacitys (only 32 gigabytes) amongst few processor cores computers of this age. Few processor cores computers that were launched in the last year have total storage capacitys of between 16GB and 1TB.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Frequency

The Asus VM42 has a very slow processor frequency (only 1.4 gigahertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for the last year. The processor frequencys of personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the VM42 range from 1GHz to 3.7GHz.

Chart Edit

Only Two Processor Threadss

The Asus VM42 is a two processor threads personal computer.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Processor Cache

The average processor cache of desktop computers that are a similar age to the VM42 is 2.9MB. At only 2 megabytes, the Asus VM42 has a quite small processor cache compared to most of the other few processor cores computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the VM42.

Chart Edit

Very Small Solid-State Drive Capacity

The Asus VM42 has a quite small solid-state drive capacity (only 32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other computers that are a comparable age to the VM42. The smallest solid-state drive capacity of few processor cores computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VM42 is 16GB and the biggest is 260GB.
