HP medium processor core computers have good ratings on average and across all PCs HP is one of the better rated brands.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on desktop computers that came out more than two years ago.
Quite Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of desktop computers that have been on the market for more than two years is 1GB and the biggest is 1.8GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of 1.74 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has one of the bigger maximum on-board graphics adapter memories amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This desktop computer supports a 11.2 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on computers of this age and spec.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 16 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has one of the bigger internal memory amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The average internal memory of desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the Z230 is 8GB, and the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP Z230 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most personal computers that have been around for a similar time to it. Most medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as 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 actually the best storage speed amongst all comparable spec PCs that were released more than two years ago.
The worst storage speed across similar types of personal computer is HDD.
Other SSD PCs currently available that you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Zotac ZBOX CA320 nano.
If you would prefer a PC with a faster storage speed then you might also want to look at the Apple Mac Pro (Flash).
+7 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on desktop computers of this age and spec.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many comparable spec desktop computers that came out around the same time as it.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The HP Z230 is a six USB 2.0 port personal computer. Most of the other personal computers of this spec and age have between two and nine USB 2.0 ports.
Fairly Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
The solid-state drive capacities of medium processor core computers that came out more than two years ago range from 16GB to 520GB. With a solid-state drive capacity of 256 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has a fairly big solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other personal computers that were released more than two years ago.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP Z230 is more than most computers that have been available for around the same time as it. This personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on computers of this type and age.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as it.
1 Reason Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The total storage capacity of medium processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Z230 range from 32GB to 2.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 720GB. With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
Computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth looking at include the DELL OptiPlex 3020 (500GB).
