12 Reasons For
HP Has Good Reviews for Its Desktop Computers
Medium processor core computers manufactured by HP have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all personal computers (not just medium processor core computers) and found that HP also has good ratings across its entire range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on similar spec PCs that came out 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 personal computers of this age and spec. The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Z230 range from 700MHz to 1,300MHz.
Quite Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The HP Z230 has one of the bigger maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (1.74 gigabytes) amongst PCs of this age. The average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of medium processor core computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Z230 is 2.8GB.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been around for more than a year.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on similar spec PCs that came out more than a year ago.
+7 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 personal computers of a comparable age and type to it.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The HP Z230 is a six USB 2.0 port computer. Most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Z230 have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.
Quite Big Processor Cache
Across all the medium processor core computers that have been available for more than a year the processor caches range from 2MB to 10MB. The HP Z230 has a fairly big processor cache (8 megabytes) compared to most of the other PCs of a comparable type and age to the Z230.
Has One Memory Slot
The HP Z230 has a greater number of memory slots than most similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it. This personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on PCs of a similar age and spec to the Z230.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on desktop computers that were launched around the same time as it.
Similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year have heights of between 9.8mm and 560mm, and the average height is 290mm. At only 100 millimeters, the HP Z230 is fairly short compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Z230.
2 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many PCs of a comparable age and type to it. 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 HP computer is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the Fujitsu W530 (£127.99) (SSD).
Only 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 desktop computers of this spec and age.
5 Other reasons to consider the HP Z230
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when HP released the Z230.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The HP Z230 has a fairly typical processor clock speed (3.3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the Z230.
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has a relatively standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers of a comparable type and age to the Z230.
Computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth looking at include the Lenovo X310 (£799.95) (1TB).
+3 Other reasons
Average Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of 500 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has a relatively standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that were launched around the same time as the Z230.
If you are looking for a bigger hard drive capacity then you might also want to consider the Fujitsu W550 (£891.25) (1TB), or the DELL OptiPlex 7010 (£379.99) (1TB).
Average Internal Memory
The HP Z230 has a fairly typical internal memory (4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other PCs that have been on the market for more than a year.
If this personal computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the DELL 270 (£349.99) (6GB).
