18 Reasons For
HP Has Good Personal Computer Reviews
HP medium processor core personal computers have good reviews on average and across all personal computers HP is one of the superior brands.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many desktop computers that have been around for more than a year.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Z230 is 640MHz, the fastest is 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,200 megahertz, the HP Z230 has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies amongst similar spec personal computers of this age.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
The processor clock speeds of similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to the Z230 range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz. At 3.6 gigahertz, the HP Z230 has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Z230.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
The HP Z230 has a fairly big internal memory (16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been around for more than a year. PCs that came out around the same time as the Z230 have internal memory of between 2GB and 64GB, and the average internal memory is 8.3GB.
If you are looking for a bigger internal memory then you might also want to look at the HP 440 MT[plb_2949579_price] (32GB and higher rated).
SSD Storage Medium
The HP Z230 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most comparable spec computers that have been around for a similar time to it. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.
An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed amongst all medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
The worst storage speed amongst comparable types of personal computer is HDD.

Eight Processor Threads
The HP Z230 has more processor threads than most of the PCs of a similar age and spec to the Z230. Most of the similar spec PCs that were released one year ago only have between four and seven processor threads, however this computer has eight processor threads.
Two PCI Express X1 (Gen 2.x) Slots
The HP Z230 is a two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slot computer.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
Medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Z230 have processor caches of between 2MB and 10MB. The HP Z230 has one of the bigger processor caches (8 megabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Quite Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
At 4,096 megabytes, the HP Z230 has a fairly big discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other computers of this age and spec. The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of comparable spec personal computers that were released one year ago is 4.9MB and the biggest is 8.2GB.
Supports One Case Placement
The number of placements supported by the HP Z230 is more than most desktop computers of a comparable age and type to it. This desktop computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by PCs of this type and age.
Has One Memory Slot
The HP Z230 has a greater number of memory slots than most similar spec desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as it. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the Z230.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
