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 of this type and age.
The heights of comparable spec personal computers that have been around for more than two years range from 19mm to 560mm. At only 100 millimeters, the HP Z230 is fairly short compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago.
1 Reason Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been available for more than two years. 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.
If the storage speed of this desktop computer is too slow for you then you might want to consider the Zotac ZBOX CA320 nano (SSD) which is also higher rated.
5 Other reasons to consider the HP Z230
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when this personal computer was released.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.4 gigahertz, the HP Z230 has a relatively standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z230.
Personal computers with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth looking at include the Fujitsu Celsius W530 (3.5GHz).
Average Total Storage Capacity
The HP Z230 has a pretty average total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Z230.
If this desktop computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Apple Mac Pro (512GB).
+3 Other reasons
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has a pretty typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been around for more than two years.
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has a pretty average internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago.
If you want a computer with a bigger internal memory then you might also want to look at the DELL OptiPlex 9020 Micro (8GB).
