11 Reasons For
We calculated the average ratings for all HP PCs and also specifically for HP medium processor core personal computers and found that in both cases HP had good ratings compared to other brands.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to it.
Quite Big Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z230 has a fairly big hard drive capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of this spec and age. The hard drive capacity of medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the Z230 range from 320GB to 3TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 800GB.
If you want a desktop computer with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might also want to consider the Lenovo E32[plb_2326680_price] (2TB), or the Alienware X51[plb_2502156_price] (2TB).
Quite Big Total Storage Capacity
Comparable spec computers that came out around the same time as the Z230 have total storage capacity of between 32GB and 3TB. At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z230 has a fairly big total storage capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that were released more than two years ago.
Desktop computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth considering include the Lenovo E32[plb_2326680_price] (2TB).
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
+6 More reasons for
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on computers of a comparable type and age to it.

Has One Memory Slot
The HP Z230 has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to it. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than two years.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many desktop computers of this age and spec.
At only 100 millimeters, the HP Z230 is quite short compared to most of the other desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the Z230. Medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago have heights of between 19mm and 560mm.
1 Reason Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time 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.
