21 Reasons For

HP Has Good Personal Computer Reviews

We checked 242 owner and expert reviews for HP personal computers and found that on average HP has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that HP has good reviews specifically within its medium processor core personal computers range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many PCs of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,200 megahertz, the Z230 SFF has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z230 SFF. PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the Z230 SFF have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 850MHz and 860,000MHz.

Chart Edit

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 medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed

At 3.5 gigahertz, the HP Z230 SFF has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other PCs of this age and spec. Personal computers that were released more than two years ago have processor clock speeds of between 1GHz and 4.1GHz.

If this computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to consider the DELL XPS 8700 (£796.52) (3.6GHz), or the Asus M32AD (3.6GHz).

Quite Big Internal Memory

The average internal memory of PCs of a comparable age and spec to the Z230 SFF is 7.5GB, and the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB. The HP Z230 SFF has a quite big internal memory (16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The Z230 SFF has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than two years. Most computers that are a similar age to it 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.

An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed amongst all desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the Z230 SFF.

The worst storage speed amongst comparable types of PC is HDD.

It may also be worth considering one of the other SSD personal computers currently available including the DELL Precision T1700 SFF which has better reviews.
