HP PCs Have Good Reviews
We checked 311 user and expert reviews for HP desktop computers and found that on average HP has good reviews. We also found that HP has good reviews specifically for its medium processor core personal computers.
Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor
The Z230 Workstation has one of the fastest memory clock speeds supported by processors (1,600 megahertz) amongst PCs of this age. The memory clock speeds supported by processors of medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the Z230 Workstation range from 800MHz to 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,300MHz.
Quite Big Internal Memory
Across all the desktop computers of this spec and age the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB, and the average internal memory is 7.9GB. The HP Z230 Workstation has a fairly big internal memory (16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other PCs of a comparable age and type to the Z230 Workstation.
SSD Storage Medium
The Z230 Workstation has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most personal computers of a comparable age and type to it. Most desktop computers of a similar spec and 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 in fact the best storage speed amongst all comparable spec personal computers that have been around for more than two years.
Amongst similar types of personal computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
There are a number of alternative SSD personal computers currently available that you might want to consider including the Zotac ZBOX CA320 nano which has better reviews.
If you want a personal computer with a faster storage speed then you might want to consider the Apple Mac Pro (Flash).
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many PCs that are a similar age to it.
+5 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many personal computers of a comparable type and age to it.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Z230 Workstation is more than most PCs of this type and age. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on comparable spec personal computers that were launched around the same time as the Z230 Workstation.
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 medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago.
1 Reason Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the Z230 Workstation has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The total storage capacity of desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the Z230 Workstation range from 32GB to 2.3TB.
If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the Apple Mac Pro (512GB).
2 Other reasons to consider the HP Z230 Workstation
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when HP released the Z230 Workstation.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.4 gigahertz, the Z230 Workstation has a pretty average processor clock speed compared to most of the other PCs that are a similar age to the Z230 Workstation.
If this desktop computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the Apple Mac Pro (3.7GHz).
