Reasons For

2 Reasons For
Five times shorter Edit
HP Z230 is 100mm high, but the Sedatech UC00725I3 is a 525mm high PC (425mm taller).
114mm shallower Edit
The HP Z230 has a depth of 384mm, however the Sedatech UC00725I3 is a 498mm deep PC (114mm deeper).
7 Reasons For
Faster processor clock speed Edit
The Sedatech UC00725I3 is a 3.4GHz processor clock speed PC. That's 0.1GHz faster than the HP Z230 (3.4GHz). Read more

The speed that the microprocessor executes each instruction or each vibration of the clock. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks, or cycles, to execute each instruction. The faster the clocks rate, the faster the CPU, or the faster it can execute instructions. Clock Speeds are usually determined in MHz, 1 MHz representing 1 million cycles per second, or in GHz, 1 GHz representing 1 thousand million cycles per second. The higher the CPU speed, the better a computer will perform.

A higher processor clock speed means that the computer can complete more calculations every second which means that applications will run faster.

3% faster maximum turbo frequency Edit
The Sedatech UC00725I3 is a 3.8GHz maximum turbo frequency PC. That's 0.1GHz faster than the HP Z230 (3.8GHz). Read more

The turbo boost is an automatic, managed accelleration of the processor when one of the cores is overloaded.

50% bigger internal memory Edit
Sedatech UC00725I3 is 8GB memory. That's 4GB bigger than the HP Z230 (8GB). Read more

A computer's memory which is directly accessible to the CPU.

A higher internal memory will allow the computer to run more quickly.

500GB bigger total storage capacity Edit
The Sedatech UC00725I3 has a total storage capacity of 1TB, whereas the HP Z230 is only a 500GB total storage capacity PC (500GB smaller). Read more

The total internal storage capacity is the space available for the computer to store documents, media and applications.

A bigger internal storage capacity means that you can store more applications, documents and media on the computer.

500GB bigger hard drive capacity Edit
The Sedatech UC00725I3 has a hard drive capacity of 1TB, whereas the HP Z230 is only a 500GB hard drive capacity PC (500GB smaller). Read more

The maximum storage capacity of the hard disk, usually measured in bytes e.g. GB.

A larger storage capacity will allow you to store more applications and documents on the computer.

47% faster on-board graphics adapter base frequency Edit
The Sedatech UC00725I3 is a 650MHz on-board graphics adapter base frequency PC. That's 300MHz faster than the HP Z230 (650MHz).
30% narrower Edit
The Sedatech UC00725I3 is a 260mm wide PC. That's 77mm narrower than the HP Z230 (260mm).

Reasons Against

8 Reasons Against
4% slower processor clock speed Edit
The HP Z230 is a 3.3GHz processor clock speed PC. That's 0.1GHz slower than the Sedatech UC00725I3 (3.4GHz). Read more

The speed that the microprocessor executes each instruction or each vibration of the clock. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks, or cycles, to execute each instruction. The faster the clocks rate, the faster the CPU, or the faster it can execute instructions. Clock Speeds are usually determined in MHz, 1 MHz representing 1 million cycles per second, or in GHz, 1 GHz representing 1 thousand million cycles per second. The higher the CPU speed, the better a computer will perform.

A higher processor clock speed means that the computer can complete more calculations every second which means that applications will run faster.

Slower maximum turbo frequency Edit
The HP Z230 is a 3.7GHz maximum turbo frequency PC. That's 0.1GHz slower than the Sedatech UC00725I3 (3.8GHz). Read more

The turbo boost is an automatic, managed accelleration of the processor when one of the cores is overloaded.

4GB smaller internal memory Edit
The HP Z230 is a 4GB memory PC. That's 4GB smaller than the Sedatech UC00725I3 (8GB). Read more

A computer's memory which is directly accessible to the CPU.

A higher internal memory will allow the computer to run more quickly.

Vastly smaller total storage capacity Edit
The HP Z230 has a total storage capacity of 500GB, however the Sedatech UC00725I3 is a 1TB total storage capacity PC (500GB bigger). Read more

The total internal storage capacity is the space available for the computer to store documents, media and applications.

A bigger internal storage capacity means that you can store more applications, documents and media on the computer.

Vastly smaller hard drive capacity Edit
The HP Z230 has a hard drive capacity of 500GB, however the Sedatech UC00725I3 is a 1TB hard drive capacity PC (500GB bigger). Read more

The maximum storage capacity of the hard disk, usually measured in bytes e.g. GB.

A larger storage capacity will allow you to store more applications and documents on the computer.

Slower on-board graphics adapter base frequency Edit
The HP Z230 is a 350MHz on-board graphics adapter base frequency PC. That's 300MHz slower than the Sedatech UC00725I3 (650MHz).
23% wider Edit
The HP Z230 has a width of 337mm. That's 77mm wider than the Sedatech UC00725I3 (260mm).
