This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed

Computers that were launched around the same time as the 240 Tower have memory clock speeds of between 1,000MHz and 2,400MHz. The 240 Tower has a quite fast memory clock speed (2,133 megahertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that were launched around the same time as the 240 Tower.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The 240 Tower has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than the DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type found on most comparable spec personal computers that have been available for more than a year.

A DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type is actually the best internal memory type across all personal computers of a comparable age and type to the 240 Tower.

A DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type is the worst internal memory type across comparable types of personal computer.

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

This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on computers of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Two PCI Express X4 (Gen 3.x) Slots

The 240 Tower is a two PCI Express x4 (Gen 3.x) slot desktop computer.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory

With a maximum internal memory of 64 gigabytes, the 240 Tower has a quite big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the 240 Tower. The average maximum internal memory of comparable spec computers that have been available for a similar time to the 240 Tower is 33GB.

Chart Edit

Two 5.25" Bays

The 240 Tower is a two 5.25" bay desktop computer. Most of the other similar spec computers that are a comparable age to the 240 Tower have between one and three 5.25" bays.

Chart Edit

Supports One Case Placement

The 240 Tower has a greater number of placements than most medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to it. This desktop computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the HP 240 Tower is more than most medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on comparable spec personal computers that were released more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type

The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on PCs of a comparable age and type to it.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

£253.05 Price Increase

In the last 25 days the 240 Tower has increased in price by £253.05.

Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

The 240 Tower has one of the smaller discrete graphics adapter memory capacities (only 2 gigabytes) amongst personal computers of this age. The average discrete graphics adapter memory of medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the 240 Tower is 1.8TB.

Chart Edit

Pricey

Comparable spec desktop computers that came out more than a year ago range in price from £139 to £2,468. We think that this personal computer looks expensive compared to other comparable spec desktop computers that came out more than a year ago.

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative HDD PCs currently available including the HP Z230[plb_2477549_price], the Alienware X51[plb_2501844_price], or the DELL Precision T5810[plb_2518973_price] which is cheaper.

If the storage speed of this personal computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF[pl_3070050_price] (SSD), or the ProDesk 600 G2 SFF[pl_3070059_price] (SSD) both from HP or the Lenovo Thinkstation P500[plb_2765683_price] (SSD).
