13 Reasons For
HP Has Good Desktop Computer Reviews
We calculated the average reviews for all HP desktop computers 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 computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
At 1,200 megahertz, the HP Z230 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other computers of a similar type and age to the Z230. Medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the Z230 have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 640MHz and 1,300MHz.
Fairly Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Comparable spec PCs that have been available for a similar time to the Z230 have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 4.3GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of 1.74 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has a fairly big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other similar spec computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Z230.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many personal computers of a similar type and age to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many PCs that came out more than a year ago.
+8 More reasons for
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on PCs of this age and spec.
The HP Z230 is a three DisplayPort personal computer.
Two 5.25" Bays
The HP Z230 is a two 5.25" bay desktop computer. Most of the other computers of a comparable age and type to the Z230 have between one and three 5.25" bays.
Three Storage Drives
The HP Z230 is a three storage drive personal computer.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP Z230 is more than most medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on computers of a similar 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 typical of many comparable spec desktop computers that have been available for a similar time to it.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This computer supports a GDDR3 discrete graphics memory type, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it.
3 Reasons Against
Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
At only 1 gigabyte, the HP Z230 has a very small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other desktop computers that were released around the same time as the Z230. The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of comparable spec desktop computers that came out around the same time as the Z230 is 1GB and the biggest is 8.2TB.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many PCs of this age and spec. 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.
PCs with a faster storage speed that might also be worth considering include the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini[plb_3078512_price] (SSD).
Only One PCI Express X4 (Gen 3.x) Slot
The HP Z230 is a one PCI Express x4 (Gen 3.x) slot PC.
5 Other reasons to consider the HP Z230
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this HP desktop computer was released.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The HP Z230 has a relatively average processor clock speed (3.3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the Z230.
PCs with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth considering include the 800 G2[pl_3797297_price] (3.4GHz), or the EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF[pl_3097970_price] (3.4GHz) both from HP.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
The HP Z230 has a fairly average hard drive capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the Z230.
If this computer hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Alienware X51[plb_2501844_price] (2TB).
+3 Other reasons
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z230 has a pretty average total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year.
Computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth looking at include the Asus G20AJ[plb_2976890_price] (1TB).
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 4 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has a pretty typical internal memory compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and spec.
PCs with a bigger internal memory that might also be worth considering include the DELL 270[plb_3068921_price] (6GB).
