Medium processor core computers produced by HP have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all desktop computers (not just medium processor core computers) and found that HP also has good ratings across its entire range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as it.
Quite Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor
With a memory clock speed supported by processor of 1,600 megahertz, the HP Z230 has a very fast memory clock speed supported by processor compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z230. Across all the PCs of a similar type and age to the Z230 the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 800MHz to 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,300MHz.
Quite Big Hard Drive Capacity
The hard drive capacity of desktop computers of this spec and age range from 320GB to 2TB. With a hard drive capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z230 has a quite big hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago.
Quite Big Total Storage Capacity
The HP Z230 has a quite big total storage capacity (1,128 gigabyte) compared to most of the other PCs of a comparable age and spec to the Z230. Medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z230 have total storage capacity of between 32GB and 2.3TB.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many computers that are a similar age to it.
+8 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers of a similar age and spec to it.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The HP Z230 is a six USB 2.0 port computer.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
Desktop computers of a comparable spec and age to the Z230 have processor caches of between 0.51MB and 10MB. With a processor cache of 8 megabytes, the HP Z230 has a fairly big processor cache compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z230.
Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory
With a maximum internal memory of 32 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has a quite big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age. Personal computers that were released more than two years ago have maximum internal memory of between 2GB and 260GB.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP Z230 is more than most medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as it. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Z230.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi DL, which is typical of many similar spec desktop computers that came out more than two years ago.
Across all the similar spec desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z230 the widths range from 36mm to 2,200mm. With a width of only 105 millimeters, the HP Z230 is one of the narrower medium processor core computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Z230 amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age.
1 Reason Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD+SSD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on desktop computers of a comparable age and spec 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.
2 Other reasons to consider the HP Z230
Average Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.4 gigahertz, the HP Z230 has a relatively average processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been on the market for more than two years.
Average Internal Memory
The HP Z230 has a pretty standard internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age.
