6 Reasons Against

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on personal computers 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.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other HDD computers currently available including cheaper personal computers such as the HP Pro 3500.

Very Small Internal Memory

The Z230 Workstation has a quite small internal memory (only 4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and spec. Medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the Z230 Workstation have internal memory of between 2GB and 64GB, and the average internal memory is 7.5GB.

There are a number of other 4GB memory personal computers currently available which you might want to consider including cheaper personal computers such as the Pro 3500, or the EliteDesk 800 G1 (£695.16) both from HP.

If you want a bigger internal memory then you might also want to consider the Alienware X51 (8GB), the Lenovo P300 Tower (8GB), or the Fujitsu Esprimo Q920 (8GB) which is also cheaper.
