We calculated the average reviews for all HP PCs and also specifically for HP medium processor core personal computers and found that in both cases HP had good reviews.

At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z230 has a fairly big hard drive capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that were released more than two years ago.

PCs with a bigger hard drive capacity that might be worth looking at include the Alienware X51[plb_2502156_price] (2TB), or the Asus M32AD[plb_2702522_price] (3TB).

Very Short

1 Reason Against

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on computers of this age and type. 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 compared this personal computer to all the other HDD desktop computers and we think cheaper personal computers such as the OptiPlex 7020 SFF[pl_2457325_price], and the OptiPlex 9020[pl_2881924_price] both from DELL or the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_1589712_price] is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a personal computer with a faster storage speed then you might also want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2229911_price] (SSD and cheaper).
