18 Reasons For

HP Has Good Personal Computer Reviews

We checked 242 expert and user reviews for HP PCs and found that on average HP has good reviews compared to other brands. We also found that HP has good reviews specifically within its medium processor core personal computers range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The HP Z230 has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (1,200 megahertz) amongst desktop computers of this age. The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to the Z230 is 850MHz and the fastest is 860,000MHz.

Chart Edit

11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version

This personal computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many desktop computers of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed

Across all the personal computers that have been available for more than two years the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 4.1GHz. With a processor clock speed of 3.6 gigahertz, the HP Z230 has one of the faster processor clock speeds amongst comparable spec computers of this age.

If you want a desktop computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the HP Z440 (£1,402.57) (3.7GHz).

Quite Big Internal Memory

Computers of this age and type have internal memory of between 2GB and 64GB. With an internal memory of 16 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has one of the bigger internal memory amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The HP Z230 has a faster storage speed than most medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it. This personal computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most desktop computers of a similar type and age to it have an HDD storage medium. 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 in fact the best storage speed across all medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the Z230.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed amongst similar types of personal computer.

We compared this desktop computer to all the other SSD desktop computers and we think the DELL Precision T1700 SFF which has better reviews is also worth considering.
