Quite Big Internal Memory

Across all the recently released medium processor core PCs the internal memory range from 2GB to 32GB, and the average internal memory is 7.8GB. With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the HP Z240 has one of the bigger internal memory amongst medium processor core PCs of this age.

We compared all the other 8GB memory PCs to this desktop computer and we think cheaper personal computers such as the Asus G20AJ[plb_2700868_price], and the DELL 7040[plb_3074347_price] is also worth considering.

If this desktop computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the 240 SFF[pl_3290411_price] (16GB), or the Z240 SFF[pl_3338320_price] (16GB) both from HP which is also cheaper.

1 Other reason to consider the HP Z240

HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on medium processor core PCs that were launched in the last year. 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.

We compared this personal computer to all the other HDD personal computers and we think the Precision T5810[pl_2518973_price], and the 7040[pl_3074347_price] both from DELL or the Asus G11CD[plb_3153378_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If the storage speed of this personal computer is too slow for you then you might want to consider the P310[pl_3192586_price] (SSD), or the P310[pl_3192629_price] (SSD) both from Lenovo which is also cheaper.
