HP Z240 Series Tower Workstation

The Z240 Series Tower Workstation from HP delivers powerful performance in a tower form factor and is designed for professionals who require high reliability. With the capabilities to operate in immersive work environments and handle 24x7x365 workloads, the Z240 delivers processor and graphics technologies, as well as scalability to meet your business needs, in a compact yet expandable tower.

This system is powered by a 3.6 GHz Intel Core i7-7700 Quad-Core processor which will allow you to run multiple applications simultaneously. If you need more power, the CPU can be overclocked to 4.2 GHz using Intel's Turbo Boost technology. The 16GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 non-ECC RAM helps to ensure smooth multitasking and also allows the computer to quickly access frequently-used files and programs. While the current memory configuration is 2 x 8GB, there are four total memory slots that will allow the RAM to be upgraded to 64GB, using one 16GB module in each of the four memory slots. For storage of your files, a 1TB 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" hard drive offers quick access to your data.

If you want to add external storage drives or other peripherals, the Z240 features six USB 3.0 Type-A ports, four USB 2.0 Type-A ports (one of which doubles as a charging port), and two PS/2 ports. For users who wish to add additional components or upgrade the drive bays, the Z240 has a total of six expansion bays - two 5.25" half-height external bays, one 9.5mm slim optical drive bay, two 3.5" internal bays, and one 2.5" internal bay. There are also five PCIe expansion slots. The integrated Intel HD Graphics 630 chipset delivers a sharp, clear picture and allows video to be output at resolutions up to 2560 x 1600 using its two DisplayPort 1.2 and one DVI-D ports. Whether you are listening to music, watching a movie, or playing a game, the integrated Realtek HD ALC221-VB audio codec outputs high definition audio and delivers higher fidelity than standard audio controllers.

The Z240 Series Tower Workstation includes an HP Business Slim USB keyboard, a USB mouse, and a power cord. It operates at 90-269 VAC at 47-66 Hz. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Professional (64-Bit).

General Features

Up to 64GB RAM

Four 288-pin DIMM slots support up to 64GB of ECC/non-ECC RAM at 2133 or 2400 MHz, depending on the installed CPU.

Slim SuperMulti DVD-RW Drive

HP's Slim SuperMulti DVD-RW Drive has a height of 9.5mm and supports DVD±R, DVD±R DL, DVD±RW, DVD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW media. It supports CD read speeds up to 24x and DVD read speeds up to 8x.

Gigabit Ethernet

The system uses an integrated Intel I219LM PCIe Gigabit Ethernet controller for Internet access when connected to a router, modem, or network switch.

6 x USB 3.0 Type-A Ports & 4 x USB 2.0 Type-A Ports

The Z240 features six USB 3.0 Type-A ports and four USB 2.0 Type-A ports that will allow you to connect external peripherals such as hard drives, printers, and memory card readers. At 5 Gb/s, USB 3.0 transfers data up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0, which operates at 480 Mb/s. USB 3.0's high-speed transfer rate helps to significantly reduce data transfer times, meaning you spend less time waiting and more time focusing on the task at hand.

PCI Express Connectors

1 x PCIe Gen3 x16 slot
1 x PCIe Gen3 x4 slot /x16 connector
1 x PCIe Gen3 x4 slot/x4 connector
1 x PCIe Gen3 x1 slot
1 x M.2 slot (PCIe Gen3 x4)

Please be aware that if the PCIe Gen3 x16 slot is not being used for a graphics card, only cards certified as After Market Options for this platform are supported. Additionally, the M.2 slot supports compatible devices up to 110mm.

Storage Controller

Integrated SATA (4 ports @ 6 Gb/s) with a RAID 0 (striped array) and a RAID 1 (mirrored array) is supported on Windows operating system only. It requires identical hard drives (speeds, capacity, interface). Integrated RAID 0, 1 (data configuration) is available for PCIe SSDs.

2 x DisplayPort 1.2 & 1 x DVI-D SL Video Outputs

The two DisplayPort 1.2 outputs are able to support up to resolutions up to 2560 x 1600, while the DVI-D SL output supports resolutions up to 1920 x 1200. Using an adapter, VGA is also supported up to 2048 x 1536.

Energy Efficient Power Supply

The 400-watt power supply is 92% efficient.

Windows 10

Start Menu

After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.


Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.

Microsoft Edge

After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.

Windows Store

For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.

Windows Continuum

Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.

Xbox on Windows 10

Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

Windows 10 Pro

The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all of the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for businesses users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.

Pearstone 18" 7-pin Internal Straight to 90-Degree Serial ATA Cable (Red)

The 18" red Pearstone 7-pin Internal Straight to 90-Degree Serial ATA Cable features Serial ATA connectors for internal PC storage connections. Depending upon the peripherals used, you can get data transfer rates up to 6 Gbps. A 90-degree angled connector positions the cable in a way that produces less bend, and allows the cable to line up straight. This translates to reduced cable bend and fatigue for long-term durability.
