10 Reasons For
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many few processor core PCs that have been available for a comparable time to it.
Four SATA Connectorss
The Asus VM62 has more SATA connectorss than most of the personal computers of a similar type and age to the VM62. Most of the few processor core PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the VM62 only have between two and three SATA connectorss, however this desktop computer has four SATA connectorss.
4.3 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version
This personal computer supports a 4.3 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is typical of many few processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as it.
Four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The Asus VM62 is a four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port PC. Most of the other computers of this spec and age have between one and five USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
We calculated the average reviews for all Asus computers and also specifically for Asus few processor core PCs and found that in both cases Asus had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.
Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity
The smallest total storage capacity of few processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the VM62 is 8GB, the biggest is 3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 540GB. With a total storage capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the Asus VM62 has one of the bigger total storage capacity amongst few processor core PCs of this age.
There are a number of other 1TB total storage capacity personal computers currently available which you might also want to consider including cheaper PCs such as the Acer Aspire XC-705, or the Lenovo H30.
+5 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
Four USB 3.0 Ports
Most personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year have between one and five USB 3.0 ports, including the Asus VM62 which has four USB 3.0 ports.
Has One Memory Slot
The Asus VM62 has a greater number of memory slots than most few processor core PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as it. The most frequently found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this Asus personal computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this Asus computer.
The Asus VM62 is fairly light (only 1.2 kilograms) compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and type. The weights of similar spec personal computers that were released one year ago range from 140g to 16kg, and the average weight is 4.7kg.
6 Reasons Against
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
Desktop computers that have been on the market for more than a year have on-board graphics adapter base frequencies of between 100MHz and 740MHz. At only 200 megahertz, the Asus VM62 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other personal computers that are a similar age to the VM62.
Quite Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
With a max internal memory supported processor of only 16 gigabytes, the Asus VM62 has a fairly small max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that came out more than a year ago. The average max internal memory supported processor of few processor core PCs that were released around the same time as the VM62 is 27GB, and the max internal memory supported processors range from 4GB to 64GB.
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
Across all the computers of a comparable age and spec to the VM62 the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 750MHz to 1,200MHz. At only 1,000 megahertz, the Asus VM62 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as the VM62.
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of only 1.9 gigahertz, the Asus VM62 has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that came out around the same time as the VM62. PCs that were launched around the same time as the VM62 have processor clock speeds of between 1GHz and 3.9GHz.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 1.9GHz processor clock speed PCs currently available including the HP 260 G1 ($800.00) which is cheaper.
The Asus VM62 is a two USB 2.0 port personal computer.
Only Supports Four Compatible Memory Cards
The number of compatible memory card supported by the Asus VM62 is more than most few processor core PCs that have been available for a similar time to it. This personal computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most commonly supported compatible memory card supported by personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the VM62. The compatible memory cards "SDXC", "SDHC" and "MMC" are also supported by this PC.
3 Other reasons to consider the Asus VM62
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this few processor core computer was released.
Average Internal Memory
The Asus VM62 has a pretty average internal memory (4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other PCs of a comparable type and age to the VM62.
Computers with a bigger internal memory that might be worth considering include the Lenovo S500 SFF (8GB) which is also cheaper.
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many few processor core PCs that are a similar age to it. 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.
We compared this PC to all the other HDD personal computers and we think cheaper computers such as the Acer Veriton N4630G is also worth considering.
S mall computers are nifty. They can provide a full desktop PC experience where the physical space for a traditional tower case would be cumbersome or impractical. In the past, a tiny form factor... Read more…
