14 Reasons For
HP Has Good Computer Reviews
HP medium processor core computers have good reviews on average and across all PCs HP is one of the better rated brands.
12 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
The HP 240 MT supports a better on-board graphics adapter DirectX version than most similar spec computers that are a comparable age to it. This personal computer supports a 12 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, whereas most latest medium processor core computers support an 11 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version.
This PC's on-board graphics adapter DirectX version (12) is in fact the best supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version across all computers that were released in the last year.
An 11.2/12 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version is the worst supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version across similar types of PC.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on medium processor core computers that were released in the last year.
Only Released Six Months Ago
HP only released the 240 MT six months ago.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
At 400 megahertz, the HP 240 MT has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other PCs that were released in the last 12 months. Across all the medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as the 240 MT the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 200MHz to 850MHz.
Price Drop of £355.59
The 240 MT has dropped in price by £355.59 in the last 2 days.
+9 More reasons for
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
The slowest processor clock speed of latest personal computers is 1.3GHz, the fastest is 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz. With a processor clock speed of 3.5 gigahertz, the HP 240 MT has one of the faster processor clock speeds amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
Alternative 3.5GHz processor clock speed desktop computers currently available which you might want to look at include cheaper desktop computers such as the 440 MT (£1,769.91), or the 240 Tower (£1,531.43) both from HP.
If you are looking for a PC with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the DELL Precision T5810 (3.7GHz and cheaper).
SSD Storage Medium
The HP 240 MT has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most medium processor core computers that came out in the last year. Most latest medium processor core computers have an HDD storage medium. 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.
An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage speed amongst all personal computers that are a comparable age to the 240 MT.
Amongst similar types of personal computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative SSD computers currently available including cheaper personal computers such as the HP 440 MT (£1,323.05).
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This personal computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for the last year.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many similar spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory
Across all the medium processor core computers that were launched in the last 12 months the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 260GB. The HP 240 MT has one of the bigger maximum internal memory (64 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP 240 MT is more than most latest personal computers. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on medium processor core computers that have been around for the last year.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on medium processor core computers that were launched in the last 12 months.
4 Reasons Against
We think this desktop computer looks expensive compared to other latest medium processor core computers. We checked 204 latest medium processor core computers and they range in price from £115 to £2,784.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the HP 240 MT has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were launched in the last year. The smallest total storage capacity of new comparable spec computers is 32GB and the biggest is 3.5TB.
We compared this personal computer to all the other 256GB total storage capacity PCs and we think the HP 440 MT (£1,769.91) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
PCs with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth considering include the Precision T5810 (1TB and cheaper), or the Precision T5810 (1TB and cheaper) both from DELL or the HP Elite Slice (£1,539.95) (512GB and cheaper).
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This personal computer supports a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data rate, which is the most frequently supported Ethernet LAN data rate on medium processor core computers that came out in the last 12 months.
Medium processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to the 240 MT have weights of between 38g and 23kg. The HP 240 MT is one of the heavier medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as the 240 MT (9.4 kilograms) amongst desktop computers of this age.

1 Other reason to consider the HP 240 MT
Average Internal Memory
The HP 240 MT has a fairly standard internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the 240 MT.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 8GB memory desktop computers currently available including the 800 G2 (£1,462.99), or the Z240 (£1,548.00) both from HP which is cheaper.
PCs with a bigger internal memory that might be worth considering include the DELL Precision T5810 (16GB and cheaper).
