9 Reasons For

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many desktop computers of a comparable spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

Acer Has Good Desktop Computer Reviews

Acer is one of the superior computer brands according to average user and expert reviews, and Acer also has good reviews for its few processor core computers.

Four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

The Chromebox CXI2 is a four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port personal computer. Most of the other desktop computers of this age and type have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The Acer Chromebox CXI2 has a Flash storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most computers of a comparable type and age to it. Flash Drives 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. Across all desktop computers that have been around for more than a year the worst storage speed is HDD and the best is SSD.

Computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth looking at include the Chromebox[pl_2403417_price] (SSD), or the Vivo Mini UN42[pl_2736372_price] (SSD) both from Asus or the DELL Chromebox 3010[plb_2782862_price] (SSD) which is also cheaper.

10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology

This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many similar spec personal computers that were released more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The Chromebox CXI2 has a newer internal memory type than most personal computers of this spec and age. This personal computer has a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most computers that came out around the same time as it have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type. Across all personal computers of this type and age the worst internal memory type is DDR3-SDRAM and the best is DDR4-SDRAM.

Chart Edit

Four USB 3.0 Ports

Most desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the Chromebox CXI2 have between one and five USB 3.0 ports, including the Acer Chromebox CXI2 which has four USB 3.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Shallow

The Chromebox CXI2 is one of the shallower few processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the Chromebox CXI2 (only 165.1 millimeters) amongst few processor core computers of this age. The shallowest PC of this type and age is 33mm deep and the deepest is 1,100mm.

Chart Edit

Short

The height of the Acer Chromebox CXI2 of only 33.02 millimeters is one of the shortest amongst comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to the Chromebox CXI2. Across all the few processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the Chromebox CXI2 the heights range from 27mm to 500mm, and the average height is 190mm.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

When compared to other personal computers of a comparable type and age to the Chromebox CXI2, the on-board graphics adapter base frequency of the Chromebox CXI2 of only 100 megahertz is one of the slowest. Personal computers of this spec and age have on-board graphics adapter base frequencies of between 100MHz and 690MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 300MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

At only 800 megahertz, the Chromebox CXI2 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the Chromebox CXI2. Similar spec computers that are a comparable age to the Chromebox CXI2 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.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

With a max internal memory supported processor of only 16 gigabytes, the Chromebox CXI2 has a fairly small max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the Chromebox CXI2. Across all the computers of this age and type the max internal memory supported processors range from 4GB to 64GB.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

The average total storage capacity of few processor core computers that came out around the same time as the Chromebox CXI2 is 540GB. The Acer Chromebox CXI2 has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 16 gigabytes) amongst similar spec personal computers of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 16GB total storage capacity PCs currently available including cheaper PCs such as the DELL Chromebox 3010[plb_2782862_price], or the Asus Chromebox[plb_2403417_price].

If you are looking for a computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the Asus VM42[plb_2958922_price] (32GB) which is also cheaper.

Very Slow Processor Clock Speed

At only 1.5 gigahertz, the Chromebox CXI2 has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other few processor core computers that were released around the same time as the Chromebox CXI2. Across all the similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to the Chromebox CXI2 the processor clock speeds range from 0.8GHz to 3.9GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.8GHz.

We compared all the other 1.5GHz processor clock speed computers to this computer and we think the Acer Chromebox CXI2[plb_2928064_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this desktop computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the Shuttle XS35V5 Pro[plb_3166247_price] (1.6GHz) which is also cheaper.
