HP Personal Computers Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all HP PCs and also specifically for HP medium processor core personal computers and found that in both cases HP had good reviews.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Hard Drive Capacity

Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z230 the hard drive capacity range from 320GB to 3TB. At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z230 has a fairly big hard drive capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that were released more than two years ago.

PCs with a bigger hard drive capacity that might be worth looking at include the Alienware X51[plb_2502156_price] (2TB), or the Asus M32AD[plb_2702522_price] (3TB).

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The HP Z230 has a greater number of memory slots than most desktop computers that are a comparable age to it.

Very Short

Chart Edit

1 Reason Against

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on computers of this age and type. 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 desktop computers and we think cheaper personal computers such as the OptiPlex 7020 SFF[pl_2457325_price], and the OptiPlex 9020[pl_2881924_price] both from DELL or the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_1589712_price] is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a personal computer with a faster storage speed then you might also want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2229911_price] (SSD and cheaper).

Average Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of 3.3 gigahertz, the HP Z230 has a relatively standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar spec and age to the Z230.

If this personal computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the HP Z230[plb_2554785_price] (3.4GHz), or the DELL Precision T1700 SFF[plb_2676603_price] (3.5GHz) which also has a higher rating.

If this medium processor core desktop computer internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Asus M32AD[plb_2702522_price] (16GB).
