Desktop workstations like HP’s Z230 Tower are designed for work, not play. This one is powered by the Haswell version of Intel’s Xeon processor, which can address more memory and has wider memory pipelines than Intel’s consumer-oriented Core processors. The tower configuration sports two USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports in front. One of the USB 2.0 ports is always on for charging mobile devices. The front panel also has microphone and headphone jacks. The back has two additional USB 3.0 ports, four more USB 2.0 ports, and a single-link DVI port, along with gigabit ethernet, audio in/out, and microphone jacks. Support for legacy devices comes in the form of two PS/2 ports and one serial port.
