We calculated the average reviews for all HP PCs and also specifically for HP medium processor core personal computers and found that in both cases HP had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many PCs of a comparable spec and age to it.
Quite Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
At 1.74 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has a quite big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other personal computers of this type and age. The smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Z230 is 1GB, the biggest is 2GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 1.4GB.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This personal computer supports a 11.2 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many PCs that came out more than two years ago.
Quite Big Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 16 gigabytes, the HP Z230's internal memory is one of the biggest amongst similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to the Z230. The smallest internal memory of medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the Z230 is 2GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average internal memory is 7.5GB.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP Z230 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most desktop computers of this age and spec. 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 actually the best storage speed amongst all medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z230.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across similar types of personal computer.
Alternative SSD desktop computers currently available which you might want to consider include the DELL Precision T1700 SFF (£600.28) which has better reviews.
+7 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers that are a similar age to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many desktop computers that came out around the same time as it.
Quite Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
The solid-state drive capacities of desktop computers of a similar type and age to 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 medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Quite Big Processor Cache
With a processor cache of 8 megabytes, the HP Z230 has one of the bigger processor caches amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age. Medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than two years ago have processor caches of between 0.51MB and 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.8MB.
Has One Memory Slot
The HP Z230 has a greater number of memory slots than most personal computers that were launched more than two years ago. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on desktop computers of this type and age.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
1 Reason Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The HP Z230 has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) amongst personal computers of this age. Computers of a similar age and type to the Z230 have total storage capacity of between 32GB and 3TB.
2 Other reasons to consider the HP Z230
Released Over Two Years Ago
This computer was released over two years ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The HP Z230 has a relatively standard processor clock speed (3.3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z230.
