HP has good average reviews for its medium processor core computers as well as across its entire PC range compared to other manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on desktop computers that have been on the market for more than two years.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many PCs of a comparable age and spec to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on computers of this type and age.
Two PCI Express X1 (Gen 2.x) Slots
The HP Z230 is a two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slot computer. Most of the other PCs of a comparable type and age to the Z230 have between one and two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
At 8 megabytes, the HP Z230 has a fairly big processor cache compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the Z230. The processor caches of desktop computers that have been available for a similar time to the Z230 range from 0.51MB to 10MB.
+4 More reasons for
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP Z230 is more than most computers of a comparable spec and age to it. This personal 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
The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on desktop computers of a similar age and type to it.
With a height of only 100 millimeters, the HP Z230 is quite short compared to most of the other personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z230. The shortest PC of a similar age and spec to the Z230 is 19mm high, the tallest is 560mm, and the average height is 280mm.
1 Reason Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on PCs that were launched more than two years ago. 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.
If the storage speed of this desktop computer is too slow for you then you might want to consider the Zotac ZBOX CA320 nano (SSD and higher rated).
4 Other reasons to consider the HP Z230
Average Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.2 gigahertz, the HP Z230 has a relatively typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other computers of a comparable type and age to the Z230.
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has a fairly typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z230.
If you are looking for a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the Apple Mac Pro (512GB).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has a relatively standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been around for more than two years.
If this computer hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the HP Z640 (£2,308.59) (1TB).
+2 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has a fairly standard internal memory compared to most of the other computers of this type and age.
