HP's ZBook 14 is an Ultrabook that's also a mobile workstation. It weighs just under 2kg, yet it offers processing power that can be used to run design and modelling applications such as 3ds Max. Basically, it's the type of Ultrabook to go for if you want something mobile that will also help you get your work done while on the road. It's strong and has plenty of useful ports, but its keyboard could be a little better.

The HP ZBook 14 neither turns the world of business computing upside down nor does it bring anything relatively new to the table. When your primary concern is an ultrabook that provides the tools you need to get your job done quickly and securely, none of that matters. HP knows this, and that philosophy drives this laptop through and through. This ultrabook is a fantastically-equipped, 14-inch workhorse at its most expensive, but is easily outshadowed by larger, shinier and cheaper competitors in some regards. If effective, simple security, a pro-grade GPU and easy access are concerns for you, an entry level or mid-range HP ZBook 14 will serve you well.

If you're looking for a nicely priced full Windows 7 mobile workstation and value portability, the HP ZBook 14 should be at the top of your list. It has the clear and glare-free studio-ready display that you'd expect from a professional workstation, with the portability and battery life you'd expect from an ultrabook.

Any director, manager, or vice president in the entertainment or engineering industries will be quite happy with the ZBook 14, especially if they travel.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


4600U:

A Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 2.1 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

1.6 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
