A quick look at this powerful workstation from HP… The HP Z240 entry level workstation (think small business, contractor, home business etc…) small in size and price, BIG on performance and functionality!
Building on the popular “Z” lineup of desktop workstations, HP has an ideal entry point for those who simply don’t have the budget, or need, for high-end, super computers that offer functionality that go way beyond what most really require while still powerful enough to easily run ArcGIS, Autodesk, and other powerful enterprise mapping solutions. The new, Z240 has been ranked the World’s #1 entry level workstation and comes optionally as a tower, or smaller desktop configuration and is available with windows 10 (pro) or Linux flavors – both pack a lot of punch! Oh, and best of all, these workhorses have an entry point price of under $1,000.
We’ve got a desktop (mini) in house here courtesy of HP, although the small size and quiet performance really makes us almost forget that the machine is here! Like all recent HP workstations (desktop and all-in-one), the Z240 has a sturdy build, simple access to get inside, and all components that are “safe” for us to remove and swap out are labelled with a friendly green tab – green = go ahead and pull it out!
For yours truly, the HOT features of the Z240 are the compact, portable size, quiet and clean operating environment, simple access inside, and the speed. Oh, and the relatively small price tag is a huge bonus (@gletham)
Some of the stand out functionality you’ll find in the HP Z240 include:
- Powerful processors, graphics, memory, and two optional ultra-fast HP Z Turbo drives
- 57 percent smaller than the tower
