Engineered to impress, the redesigned HP Z230 Small Form Factor Workstation provides the capability and flexibility users demand in a 57% smaller form factor than the tower. Users will experience impressive performance, unbelievable storage capacity, wide variety of I/O slots and ports and amazing flexibility while retaining the small form factor size.
Meanwhile, the HP Z230 Tower Workstation features complete computing power in a new compact design. The tower is designed to grow along with a companys business so that they can
scale and expand by adding more storage and connectivity whenever they need it. The tower allows users to enhance their storage capacity with six available drive bays including a 2.5-inch HD bay for high speed solid state drives. Further, the optional ergonomic Handle in Top ODD Bay allows tool free installation of SSD Hard Drives for easy expandability.
