On average HP medium processor core computers have good reviews as do all desktop computers built by HP.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as it.
Quite Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The HP Z230 has one of the bigger maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (1.74 gigabytes) amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age. Across all the desktop computers of a similar age and type to the Z230 the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1GB to 64GB.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many computers of a similar spec and age to it.
Eight Processor Threads
The HP Z230 is a eight processor thread computer.
+4 More reasons for
Quite Big Processor Cache
With a processor cache of 8 megabytes, the HP Z230 has a quite big processor cache compared to most of the other computers of a similar type and age to the Z230. Medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Z230 have processor caches of between 2MB and 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.6MB.
Has One Memory Slot
The HP Z230 has a greater number of memory slots than most personal computers of a comparable age and type to it. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on desktop computers of this age and spec.
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 personal computers that have been around for more than a year.
2 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many computers that are a similar 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 compared all the other HDD desktop computers to this desktop computer and we think the M91p (£426.50), and the ThinkCentre M73 Tiny both from Lenovo or the HP 280 G1 (£343.19) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If the storage speed of this computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the DELL OptiPlex 9020 (£358.80) (SSD and cheaper), or the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (SSD and cheaper).
Only 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 computers that came out around the same time as it.
5 Other reasons to consider the HP Z230
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when HP released the Z230.
Average Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.4 gigahertz, the HP Z230 has a relatively standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Z230.
If this PC processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the HP ProDesk 600 SFF (£402.66) (3.6GHz and cheaper).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
The HP Z230 has a pretty typical hard drive capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other PCs of a comparable type and age to the Z230.
If this computer hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo H50 (£379.97) (2TB and cheaper).
+3 Other reasons
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z230 has a pretty standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers of this age and type.
We compared all the other 1TB total storage capacity PCs to this personal computer and we think cheaper PCs such as the Acer Aspire XC-605 (£399.00) is also worth considering.
If you are looking for a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the Aspire X3-710 (£489.12) (2TB), or the Aspire T3-710 (£461.98) (2TB) both from Acer or the Asus K31AD (£722.38) (2TB).
Average Internal Memory
The HP Z230 has a pretty typical internal memory (4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers that were released around the same time as the Z230.
