Supports Eight Compatible Memory Cards
The Asus BT1AD has a greater number of compatible memory card than most medium processor core computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it. This computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most frequently supported compatible memory card supported by medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as the BT1AD. The compatible memory cards "Memory Stick (MS)", "MMC", "MS PRO", "MS Pro-HG", "MSXC", "SDHC" and "SDXC" are also supported by this personal computer.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to it.
With a weight of only 5.3 kilograms, the Asus BT1AD is fairly light compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that came out around the same time as the BT1AD. Across all the comparable spec computers that have been available for around the same time as the BT1AD the weights range from 250g to 24kg, and the average weight is 8kg.
With a depth of only 239 millimeters, the Asus BT1AD is one of the shallower PCs of this age and type amongst personal computers of this age. Computers that came out around the same time as the BT1AD have depths of between 33mm and 1,800mm, and the average depth is 350mm.
The narrowest desktop computer that has been on the market for a comparable time to the BT1AD is 36mm wide and the widest is 2,200mm. When compared to other medium processor core computers that came out more than two years ago that we have checked, the Asus BT1AD's width of only 70 millimeters is one of the narrowest.
9 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most personal computers of this spec and age have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the Asus BT1AD which has two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The Asus BT1AD has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (only 1,100 megahertz) amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as the BT1AD is 1,200MHz.
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
The Asus BT1AD has one of the slower processor clock speeds (only 2.8 gigahertz) amongst personal computers of this age. Across all the similar spec PCs that were released around the same time as the BT1AD the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 4.1GHz.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many PCs that have been on the market for more than two years. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
+6 More reasons against
