This HP Z210 comes equipped with a 3.3GHz Intel Xeon E3-1240--a low-power, quad-core processor typically found in servers and workstations. It offers 8GB of RAM (you can install up to 32GB of RAM), and sports an Nvidia Quadro 2000 graphics card. To start with, Xeon processors are generally intended for use in servers. They run cooler and at lower voltages than the other consumer-oriented Core i7 CPUs, being designed for continuous use-24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Why a Xeon processor?
The Xeon processors are generally intended for use in servers. They run cooler and at lower voltages than consumer-oriented Core i7 CPUs, being designed for continous use--24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Xeon E3 processor also includes a number of business-friendly features, such as support for Intel's vPro security technology, as well as Error-Correcting Code (ECC) memory. Both features add a price premium to the Xeon processor, but when you're working with important, sensitive data, professionals will agree that it's money well spent.
Accelerated Performance Graphics
The Nvidia Quadro 2000 graphics card, built on the same Fermi architecture we've seen in the GeForce GTX line, Nvidia's professional Quadro cards are expressly designed to work reliably under demanding, always-on conditions. Professional applications like 3ds Max and AutoCAD are also optimized to work with professional cards like Nvidia's Quadro and AMD's FirePro lines, delivering both accelerated performance and technical support not matched by consumer models.
Ideal Business Workstation
The HP Z210 will likely fit right into most work environments. It's par for the course for the business category--boring black shell, with a firm focus on functionality over form. The face offers three USB ports, a FireWire port, a multiformat card reader (with one more USB port), and the requisite headphone and microphone jacks. The machine is also equipped with a DVD burner; all these trimmings are pretty much standard in both the mainstream and business desktop categories, but accessibility is always appreciated.
Useful for Offices With Legacy Hardware
The rear of the machine offers up serial mouse and keyboard ports--freeing up a pair of USB ports, and useful for offices with legacy hardware. A DisplayPort and a DVI connector are provided by the motherboard. You'll find six more USB ports, gigabit ethernet, and 2.1-channel audio. The Nvidia Quadro 2000 offers HDMI, DisplayPort, and DVI connectors. A bit basic thus far, but one add-in card offers a pair of USB 3.0 ports, and another offers a pair of FireWire ports. Advanced connectivity is always appreciated, and while these optional add-in cards might sacrifice some internal upgrade space, the added flexibility they provide is welcome.
Whats the Side Lever for?
A lever on the side of the case offers quick and easy access to the HP Z210's fairly cavernous innards. You'll find three 5.25-inch drive bays, one of them occupied by the DVD burner, and another by the card reader, plus three hard-drive bays, one occupied by the 1TB hard drive.
