13 Reasons For
We calculated the average ratings for all HP computers and also specifically for HP medium processor core personal computers and found that in both cases HP had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
Recent Price Drop of £202.09
In the last couple of weeks the Z240 has dropped in price by £202.09.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
At 3.4 gigahertz, the HP Z240 has a fairly fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other new medium processor core personal computers. The processor clock speeds of new medium processor core personal computers range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 3.4GHz processor clock speed computers currently available including the DELL 7040[plb_3074347_price], or the Lenovo P310[plb_3191100_price] which is cheaper.
Desktop computers with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth looking at include the HP Z230[plb_3288100_price] (3.6GHz) which is also cheaper.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP Z240 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most similar spec PCs that were launched in the last 12 months. Most new similar spec personal computers 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 personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z240.
Amongst comparable types of personal computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other SSD personal computers currently available including cheaper PCs such as the Lenovo ThinkCentre M900 Tiny[plb_3169875_price].
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many recently released desktop computers.
+8 More reasons for
Very Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
When compared to other recently released medium processor core personal computers, the HP Z240's maximum turbo frequency of 4 gigahertz is one of the fastest. Across all the comparable spec desktop computers that came out around the same time as the Z240 the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.2GHz.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many new comparable spec computers.
Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory
The average maximum internal memory of similar spec desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Z240 is 42GB. With a maximum internal memory of 64 gigabytes, the HP Z240 has a quite big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to the Z240.
Eight Processor Threads
The HP Z240 is a eight processor thread personal computer.
Quite Big Processor Cache
The smallest processor cache of recently released similar spec desktop computers is 2MB and the biggest is 10MB. The HP Z240 has one of the bigger processor caches (8 megabytes) amongst computers of this age.
Has One Memory Slot
The HP Z240 has a greater number of memory slots than most personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on latest medium processor core personal computers.
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 are a similar age to it.
3 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The HP Z240 has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The smallest total storage capacity of PCs that came out in the last year is 32GB, the biggest is 3.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 730GB.
It may also be worth considering one of the other 256GB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available including cheaper computers such as the P310[pl_3192586_price], or the P310[pl_3192629_price] both from Lenovo.
If you would prefer a desktop computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the 600 G2[pl_3791240_price] (500GB), or the 800 G2 SFF[pl_3288899_price] (500GB) both from HP or the DELL 8900[plb_3274875_price] (1TB) which is also cheaper.
We think this desktop computer looks expensive compared to other medium processor core personal computers that were released in the last 12 months. The cheapeast new desktop computer that we found costs £81 and the most expensive costs £2,147.
Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor
The HP Z240 has a quite slow memory clock speed supported by processor (only 1,333 megahertz) compared to most of the other desktop computers that are a comparable age to the Z240. Recently released medium processor core personal computers have memory clock speeds supported by processors of between 800MHz and 2,200MHz.
3 Other reasons to consider the HP Z240
Released Over a Year Ago
This medium processor core desktop computer was released over a year ago.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z240 has a relatively average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z240.
We compared this personal computer to all the other 1TB hard drive capacity desktop computers and we think cheaper computers such as the Fujitsu W530[plb_2954179_price], the Alienware Alpha[plb_3054588_price], and the Asus G11CD[plb_3153378_price] is also worth considering.
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the HP Z240 has a relatively average internal memory compared to most of the other latest medium processor core personal computers.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 8GB memory computers currently available including the Fujitsu W530[plb_2954179_price], or the Alienware Alpha[plb_3054588_price] which is cheaper.
If you want a bigger internal memory then you might want to consider the 240 SFF[pl_3290411_price] (16GB), or the Z240 SFF[pl_3338320_price] (16GB) both from HP.
