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.
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.
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.
8 Reasons Against
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor
The average maximum internal memory supported by processor of computers of this spec and age is 28GB. 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.
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency (max)
With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max) of only 1,000 megahertz, the Asus VM42 has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max)s amongst few processor cores computers of this age. Across all the desktop computers of this age and spec the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max)s range from 750MHz to 1,200MHz.
Only Two Number of SATA III Connectorss
Most personal computers of this age and type have between two and three number of SATA III connectorss, including the Asus VM42 which has two number of SATA III connectorss.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of only 32 gigabytes, the Asus VM42 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of this type and age. The smallest total storage capacity of similar spec personal computers that were released one year ago is 8GB and the biggest is 3TB.
+5 More reasons against
Very Slow Processor Frequency
Few processor cores computers that were released more than a year ago have processor frequencys of between 0.8GHz and 3.9GHz. The Asus VM42 has one of the slower processor frequencys (only 1.4 gigahertz) amongst few processor cores computers of this age.
If you would prefer a PC with a faster processor frequency then you might want to consider the Shuttle XS35V5 Pro (£157.97) (1.6GHz).
Only Two Processor Threadss
The Asus VM42 is a two processor threads desktop computer. Most of the other few processor cores computers that are a similar age to the VM42 have between two and three processor threadss.
Quite Small Processor Cache
The average processor cache of desktop computers of this age and type is 2.8MB, and the processor caches range from 1MB to 4MB. The Asus VM42 has one of the smaller processor caches (only 2 megabytes) amongst few processor cores computers of this age.
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys
The Asus VM42 is a two USB 2.0 ports quantity computer.
