12 Reasons For
HP Has Good PC Reviews
Medium processor core computers manufactured by HP have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all PCs (not just medium processor core computers) and found that HP also has good reviews across its entire range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on desktop computers of a comparable type and age to it.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This desktop computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many comparable spec personal computers that came out more than two years ago.
Quite Big Internal Memory
The average internal memory of medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z230 is 8GB. The HP Z230 has a quite big internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z230.
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many PCs of this spec and age.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on personal computers that were launched around the same time as it.
+7 More reasons for
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The HP Z230 is a six USB 2.0 port personal computer. Most of the other similar spec computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Z230 have between two and nine USB 2.0 ports.
Eight Processor Threads
Most of the other personal computers of a similar age and type to the Z230 only have between four and seven processor threads, however the HP Z230 has eight processor threads.
Quite Big Processor Cache
With a processor cache of 8 megabytes, the HP Z230 has one of the bigger processor caches amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The average processor cache of medium processor core computers that have been available for more than two years is 6.7MB, and the processor caches range from 0.51MB to 10MB.
Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
With a maximum turbo frequency of 3.9 gigahertz, the HP Z230 has one of the faster maximum turbo frequencies amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The maximum turbo frequencies of comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market for more than two years range from 1.3GHz to 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.
Has One Memory Slot
The HP Z230 has a greater number of memory slots than most PCs that were launched more than two years ago. This personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on comparable spec desktop computers that came out more than two years ago.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many comparable spec PCs that were released around the same time as it.
1 Reason Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on comparable spec computers that have been on the market for more than two years. 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.
If you want a computer with a faster storage speed then you might want to look at the Zotac ZBOX CA320 nano (SSD) which also has a higher rating.
4 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
At 3.4 gigahertz, the HP Z230 has a pretty typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that came out more than two years ago.
If you are looking for a computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the Fujitsu Celsius W530 (£773.93) (3.5GHz).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z230 has a fairly average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to the Z230.
+2 Other reasons
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z230 has a pretty average total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers that are a similar age to the Z230.
