14 Reasons For
HP Computers Have Good Reviews
Medium processor core computers built by HP have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all PCs (not just medium processor core computers) and found that HP also has good reviews across its entire range.
12 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
The HP 240 MT supports a 12 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version which is better than the 11 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version supported by most computers that were released in the last year.
A 12 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version is in fact the best supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version amongst all similar spec PCs that were released around the same time as the 240 MT.
The worst supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version across similar types of personal computer is 11.2/12.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that were launched in the last 12 months.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP 240 MT has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most latest medium processor core computers. Solid State Drives (SSD) 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.
This computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed across all new comparable spec PCs.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed amongst similar types of computer.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other SSD personal computers currently available including the 440 MT (£1,323.05), or the 440 (£1,726.37) both from HP or the DELL Precision T5810 which is cheaper.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on recently released medium processor core computers.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This desktop computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many PCs that came out around the same time as it.
+9 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on recently released medium processor core computers.
Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
The average maximum turbo frequency of desktop computers that were launched in the last year is 3.6GHz, and the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.2GHz. The HP 240 MT has one of the faster maximum turbo frequencies (4 gigahertz) amongst similar spec personal computers of this age.
Two PCI Express X4 (Gen 3.x) Slots
The HP 240 MT is a two PCI Express x4 (Gen 3.x) slot PC.
Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory
The average maximum internal memory of medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the 240 MT is 40GB, and the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 260GB. The HP 240 MT has one of the bigger maximum internal memory (64 gigabytes) amongst similar spec desktop computers of this age.
Eight Processor Threads
The HP 240 MT is a eight processor thread computer.
Quite Big Processor Cache
With a processor cache of 8 megabytes, the HP 240 MT has a quite big processor cache compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been on the market for the last year. Latest medium processor core computers have processor caches of between 2MB and 10MB.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP 240 MT is more than most new similar spec desktop computers. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the 240 MT.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on medium processor core computers that have been on the market for the last year.
6 Reasons Against
After checking the price of 204 new medium processor core computers they range in price from £115 to £2,784. We think that this personal computer looks expensive compared to other new medium processor core computers.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the HP 240 MT has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that have been around for the last year. The average total storage capacity of latest comparable spec computers is 810GB, and the total storage capacity range from 32GB to 3.5TB.
We compared all the other 256GB total storage capacity personal computers to this computer and we think cheaper desktop computers such as the HP 440 MT (£1,769.91) is also worth considering.
Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor
Medium processor core computers that have been on the market for the last year have memory clock speeds supported by processors of between 800MHz and 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,700MHz. At only 1,333 megahertz, the HP 240 MT has a fairly slow memory clock speed supported by processor compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the 240 MT.
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This PC supports a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data rate, which is typical of many new PCs.
+3 More reasons against
Only One PCI Express X1 (Gen 3.x) Slot
The HP 240 MT is a one PCI Express x1 (Gen 3.x) slot desktop computer.
Only One PCI Express X16 (Gen 3.x) Slot
The HP 240 MT is a one PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slot desktop computer.
3 Other reasons to consider the HP 240 MT
Released Nine Months Ago
It was nine months ago when HP released the 240 MT.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.4 gigahertz, the HP 240 MT has a fairly standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the 240 MT.
If this computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the 440 (£1,726.37) (3.5GHz), the 240 MT (£1,887.23) (3.5GHz), or the 440 MT (£1,323.05) (3.5GHz) all from HP which is also cheaper.
Average Internal Memory
The HP 240 MT has a pretty standard internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other similar spec computers that have been around for the last year.
If you are looking for a bigger internal memory then you might also want to look at the 440 (£1,726.37) (16GB and cheaper), or the 440 MT (£1,323.05) (16GB and cheaper) both from HP or the DELL Precision T5810 (16GB and cheaper).
