HP PCs Have Good Reviews
HP medium processor core personal computers have good ratings on average and across all computers HP is one of the better rated manufacturers.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The HP Z230 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (1,200 megahertz) compared to most of the other computers of a comparable spec and age to the Z230. The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago is 1,200MHz.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This desktop computer supports a 11.2 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many PCs that were launched around the same time as it.
Quite Big Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 16 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has one of the bigger internal memory amongst PCs of this age. The smallest internal memory of desktop computers of this type and age is 2GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average internal memory is 7.9GB.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP Z230 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to it. Most PCs of this type and age have an HDD storage medium. 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 personal computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed amongst all computers that are a similar age to the Z230.
Amongst similar types of personal computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
We compared this desktop computer to all the other SSD computers and we think because of it's better review score, the Zotac ZBOX CA320 nano is also worth considering.
If the storage speed of this personal computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the Apple Mac Pro (Flash).
+5 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many computers of a similar age and type to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on desktop computers of this age and spec.
Has One Memory Slot
The HP Z230 has a greater number of memory slots than most PCs of this spec and age. This PC has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on comparable spec PCs that have been around for more than two years.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to it.
1 Reason Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The smallest total storage capacity of medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than two years is 32GB, the biggest is 2.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 730GB. With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other PCs of a similar age and type to the Z230.
If this personal computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3020 (500GB).
