HP medium processor core personal computers have good reviews on average and across all computers HP is one of the better rated manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than two years the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 850MHz to 860,000MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,200 megahertz, the HP Z230 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age.
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 personal computers of a comparable age and spec to it.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
The average processor clock speed of medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than two years ago is 3.1GHz. The HP Z230 has one of the faster processor clock speeds (3.6 gigahertz) amongst similar spec computers of this age.
If you want a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to consider the HP Z440[plb_2520406_price] (3.7GHz).
SSD Storage Medium
The HP Z230 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age 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.
This PC's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed across all medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Z230.
Across similar types of PC the worst storage speed is HDD.
There are a number of other SSD personal computers currently available that you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the DELL Precision T1700 SFF[plb_2676603_price].
+14 More reasons for
Fairly Big Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has one of the bigger internal memory amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The internal memory of desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the Z230 range from 2GB to 64GB.
If you are looking for a personal computer with a bigger internal memory then you might also want to consider the Apple Mac Pro[plb_3816853_price] (12GB), or the DELL XPS 8700[plb_2716106_price] (12GB).
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many similar spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many similar spec PCs that were launched around the same time as it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many personal computers of this spec and age.
Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
The average maximum turbo frequency of medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z230 is 3.6GHz. At 4 gigahertz, the HP Z230 has a quite fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the Z230.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The HP Z230 is a six USB 2.0 port personal computer.
Quite Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
The solid-state drive capacities of medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z230 range from 8GB to 520GB, and the average solid-state drive capacity is 190GB. With a solid-state drive capacity of 256 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has one of the bigger solid-state drive capacities amongst comparable spec PCs of this age.
Eight Processor Threads
Most of the other PCs of this type and age only have between four and seven processor threads, however the HP Z230 has eight processor threads.
Quite Big Processor Cache
The average processor cache of personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the Z230 is 6.8MB. The HP Z230 has one of the bigger processor caches (8 megabytes) amongst PCs of this age.
Four USB 3.0 Ports
The HP Z230 is a four USB 3.0 port computer. Most of the other similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to the Z230 have between one and eight USB 3.0 ports.
Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory
At 32 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has a fairly big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other computers that are a similar age to the Z230. The smallest maximum internal memory of personal computers of a similar age and type to the Z230 is 2GB, the biggest is 260GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 32GB.
Has One Memory Slot
The HP Z230 has a greater number of memory slots than most comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to it. This PC has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on computers of this age and type.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many PCs of this type and age.
2 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
At only 256 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the Z230. Medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago have total storage capacity of between 32GB and 3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 710GB.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The HP Z230 has a fairly small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory (only 1.024 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the Z230. The maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of desktop computers of this spec and age range from 1GB to 2GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 1.4GB.
