10 Reasons For
HP Has Good Desktop Computer Reviews
HP medium processor core personal computers have good ratings on average and across all desktop computers HP is one of the superior manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on comparable spec computers that have been around for a similar time to it.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP Z230 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most personal computers that have been on the market 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.
This desktop computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed amongst all computers of a similar age and spec to the Z230.
Amongst comparable types of desktop computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative SSD personal computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the DELL Precision T1700 SFF[plb_2676603_price].
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers of a similar type and age to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on PCs of this spec and age.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many desktop computers that have been around for more than two years.
+5 More reasons for
Two PCI Express X1 (Gen 2.x) Slots
The HP Z230 is a two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slot personal computer.
Supports One Case Placement
The HP Z230 has a greater number of placements than most desktop computers of a comparable type and age to it. This personal computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by desktop computers of a similar type and age to the Z230.
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 commonly found memory slot found on similar spec desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z230.
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 age and spec.
2 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
Across all the desktop computers of a similar spec and age to the Z230 the total storage capacity range from 32GB to 3TB. At only 256 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to the Z230.
If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the DELL OptiPlex 9020[plb_2881924_price] (500GB).
Very Small Internal Memory
With an internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other personal computers of this type and age. The internal memory of medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the Z230 range from 2GB to 64GB, and the average internal memory is 7.5GB.
If this medium processor core desktop computer internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Asus G20AJ[plb_2700868_price] (8GB).
2 Other reasons to consider the HP Z230
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when this personal computer was released.
