    Comments about HP Z230 Series F1L53UT Tower Workstation:

    Came fully operational running Windows 7 and booted right up. Installed rest of software that I needed with no problems.
    Machine is running just fine. We do heavy-duty Matlab calculations with this machine. Not sure of the MIPS but performs very well. I might consider adding more memory in the future just because Matlab is a memory hog.
    My only complaint is display connection is DVI only and I was using my old display and needed a converter cable.

      Comments about HP Z230 Series F1L53UT Tower Workstation:

      the only missing item is a wireless card which is easily fixed; the machine is well built and has enough ports to add the equipment you need to operate a productive small office. The only thing I would have preferred would have been spearker ports on the front of the unit.
