The BOXNUC5I3RYK is one the best selling PC currently on sale.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on PCs that were launched around the same time as it.
Four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most computers of this age and type have between one and five USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the BOXNUC5I3RYK which has four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
The Intel BOXNUC5I3RYK has a newer internal memory type than most few processor core PCs that have been available for around the same time as it. This personal computer has a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most comparable spec PCs that were launched around the same time as it have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type.
A DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type is actually the best internal memory type amongst all PCs of this age and type.
Amongst comparable types of PC the worst internal memory type is LPDDR3-SDRAM.
Four USB 3.0 Ports
The Intel BOXNUC5I3RYK is a four USB 3.0 port computer. Most of the other comparable spec personal computers that were launched more than a year ago have between one and five USB 3.0 ports.
7.1 Audio Output Channel
The BOXNUC5I3RYK has a 7.1 audio output channel which is better than most similar spec desktop computers that were released around the same time as it. Most desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as it have a 5.1 audio output channel.
A 7.1 audio output channel is in fact the best audio output across all computers of this type and age.
Across comparable types of personal computer the worst audio output is 5.1.

Four Processor Threads
The Intel BOXNUC5I3RYK has more processor threads than most of the desktop computers of a comparable age and type to the BOXNUC5I3RYK. Most of the desktop computers of this age and type only have between two and three processor threads, however this desktop computer has four processor threads.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the BOXNUC5I3RYK is more than most PCs of this spec and age. The most frequently found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this Intel desktop computer.
Computers of a comparable spec and age to the BOXNUC5I3RYK have widths of between 29mm and 660mm, and the average width is 180mm. At only 115 millimeters, the Intel BOXNUC5I3RYK is quite narrow compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and spec.
Across all the few processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as the BOXNUC5I3RYK the heights range from 10mm to 500mm. At only 34.5 millimeters, the Intel BOXNUC5I3RYK is quite short compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that are a similar age to the BOXNUC5I3RYK.
The average depth of few processor core PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the BOXNUC5I3RYK is 280mm. The BOXNUC5I3RYK is one of the shallower personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the BOXNUC5I3RYK (only 111 millimeters) amongst few processor core PCs of this age.
5 Reasons Against
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
At only 900 megahertz, the Intel BOXNUC5I3RYK has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other computers of this type and age. Few processor core PCs that were released one year ago have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 750MHz and 1,200MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.
Quite Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
At only 16 gigabytes, the BOXNUC5I3RYK has a fairly small max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other computers that have been available for more than a year. The max internal memory supported processors of computers that have been around for a similar time to the BOXNUC5I3RYK range from 4GB to 64GB.
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of only 2.1 gigahertz, the Intel BOXNUC5I3RYK has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that have been available for more than a year. The processor clock speeds of PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the BOXNUC5I3RYK range from 1GHz to 3.9GHz.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 2.1GHz processor clock speed computers currently available including cheaper computers such as the Intel BOXNUC5I3RYH ($304.49).
If you would prefer a personal computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the DELL OptiPlex 3020 ($299.99) (3.1GHz and cheaper).
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
Few processor core PCs that were launched more than a year ago have maximum internal memory of between 8.1GB and 33GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 28GB. At only 16,384 megabytes, the BOXNUC5I3RYK has a quite small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the BOXNUC5I3RYK.
