Asus M11BB-B10 Essentio Desktop PC with AMD A8-5500 Review

Graphics card is the AMD Radeon HD 7560D with shared video memory with video benchmark score of 666 as of today and performs better than the Intel HD 4000 and Radeon HD 7660G so you can experience good quality images with fine details- acceptable multimedia performance and can play some of the later more advanced games at low settings only and you will be more comfortable with the older titles at higher settings and acceptable frame rates. AMD A8-5500 processor, with a Passmark benchmark score of roughly 4000, is a high mid range processor that will handle all the daily tasks and more demanding software mostly without problems, 8GB is a lot of memory for most users and if you need more you can upgrade it up to 32GB and storage is 1 TB mechanical drive for capacity- size rather than speed but it is 7200rpm rather than 5400rpm that is mostly found on budget computers and you can always add an SSD as they are coming down in price. Although we don’t have the Essentio desktop in front of us and there aren’t many reviews online yet, judging by the specs and features you seem to be getting quite a bit for your dollar.
