9 Reasons For

HP Computers Have Good Reviews

HP is one of the better rated PC brands according to average user and expert reviews, and HP also has good ratings for its medium processor core personal computers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many similar spec computers that have been on the market for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

Across all the desktop computers of a similar age and type to the Z230 the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 850MHz to 860,000MHz. The HP Z230 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (1,200 megahertz) compared to most of the other personal computers that were launched around the same time as the Z230.

Chart Edit

11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version

This computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Hard Drive Capacity

With a hard drive capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z230 has a quite big hard drive capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar age and type to the Z230. Across all the similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to the Z230 the hard drive capacity range from 320GB to 3TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 800GB.

PCs with a bigger hard drive capacity that might also be worth considering include the Alienware X51 (2TB), or the Asus M32AD (£570.99) (3TB).

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 medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

L3 Processor Cache Level

This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on personal computers that were launched more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the HP Z230 is more than most computers of a comparable age and spec to it. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z230.

Chart Edit

DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type

Chart Edit

1 Reason Against

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to it. 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 other HDD PCs currently available including cheaper PCs such as the OptiPlex 7020 SFF, or the OptiPlex 9020 (£499.00) both from DELL or the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (£489.60).

Personal computers with a faster storage speed that might also be worth looking at include the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (SSD) which is also cheaper.
