Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency

The maximum turbo frequencies of similar spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Z230 range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz. At 4 gigahertz, the HP Z230 has a fairly fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the Z230.

Chart Edit

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.

Fairly Big Processor Cache

Across all the computers of this spec and age the processor caches range from 2MB to 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.6MB. At 8 megabytes, the HP Z230 has a fairly big processor cache compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z230.

Chart Edit

Supports One Case Placement

The HP Z230 has a greater number of placements than most comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to it. This desktop computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most commonly supported case placement supported by computers of this type and age.

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.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative HDD personal computers currently available including the Aspire X3-710[pl_3192160_price], or the Aspire TC-705[pl_3095333_price] both from Acer or the Alienware X51[plb_2373451_price] which is cheaper.
