5 Reasons For

Asus Has Good Computer Reviews

On average Asus few processor cores computers have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all personal computers manufactured by Asus.

64-Bit Processor Operating Modes

This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating modes, which is typical of many personal computers that have been available for more than a year.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Media

The Asus VM42 has a faster storage speed than most few processor cores computers that were released more than a year ago. This desktop computer has an SSD storage media, whereas most desktop computers that were released one year ago 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 comparable spec personal computers that were launched around the same time as the VM42.

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

DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The Asus VM42 has a newer internal memory type than most personal computers of a similar type and age to it. This computer has a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most similar spec computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type. The best internal memory type of all few processor cores computers that are a similar age to the VM42 is DDR4-SDRAM and the worst is DDR3-SDRAM.

Chart Edit

Very Light

With a weight of only 1.2 kilograms, the Asus VM42 is quite light compared to most of the other few processor cores computers that have been available for a similar time to the VM42. Similar spec computers that have been available for a comparable time to the VM42 have weights of between 140g and 16kg, and the average weight is 4.6kg.
