8 Reasons Against
Very Slow Memory Clock Speeds Supported by Processor
Across all the similar spec personal computers that were launched more than two years ago the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 800MHz to 1,600MHz, and the average memory clock speeds supported by processor is 1,300MHz. At only 800 megahertz, the HP Z420 has a fairly slow memory clock speeds supported by processor compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the Z420.
Quite Slow Processor Frequency
With a processor frequency of only 2.8 gigahertz, the HP Z420 has one of the slower processor frequencys amongst desktop computers of this age. Across all the similar spec computers that came out around the same time as the Z420 the processor frequencys range from 1GHz to 4.1GHz.
Only HDD Storage Media
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many desktop computers of a comparable spec and age 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.
Very Small Internal Memory
With an internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the HP Z420 has one of the smaller internal memorys amongst medium processor cores computers of this age. Desktop computers of a similar spec and age to the Z420 have internal memorys of between 2GB and 64GB, and the average internal memory is 8.5GB.
+5 More reasons against
Very Small Hard Drive Capacity
