We calculated the average reviews for all HP desktop computers and also specifically for HP medium processor core personal computers and found that in both cases HP had good reviews compared to other brands.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many PCs of this age and spec.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
PCs of this spec and age have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 850MHz and 860,000MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 3,200MHz. At 1,200 megahertz, the HP Z230 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other PCs of a comparable spec and age to the Z230.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as it.
Quite Big Internal Memory
The internal memory of the HP Z230 of 16 gigabytes is one of the biggest amongst PCs of this spec and age. The smallest internal memory of medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z230 is 2GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average internal memory is 7.5GB.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP Z230 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most computers that were released around the same time as it. 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.
This personal computer's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed amongst all personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the Z230.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across similar types of personal computer.
+8 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than two years ago.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many PCs of a comparable spec and age to it.
Blu-Ray DVD Combo Optical Drive Type
The HP Z230 has a Blu-Ray DVD Combo optical drive type which is better than the DVD Super Multi optical drive type found on most PCs that have been on the market for more than two years.
A Blu-Ray DVD Combo optical drive type is in fact the best optical drive type amongst all similar spec PCs that were launched more than two years ago.
Amongst similar types of PC the worst optical drive type is DVD+RW.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many PCs of a comparable age and type to it.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This PC has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago.
Eight Processor Threads
The HP Z230 is a eight processor thread PC.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP Z230 is more than most PCs of this type and age. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on personal computers that have been on the market for more than two years.
1 Reason Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The total storage capacity of medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than two years ago range from 32GB to 3TB. The HP Z230 has a fairly small total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago.
2 Other reasons to consider the HP Z230
Released Over Two Years Ago
This computer was released over two years ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.4 gigahertz, the HP Z230 has a pretty standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other PCs of a similar spec and age to the Z230.
