Reviews for the HP ZBook 17 E9X11AA-ABA

86% Review HP ZBook 17 (E9X11AA-ABA) Workstation | Notebookcheck
DreamBook? HP has changed the name of its mobile workstations to ZBook, shipping it not only with a different moniker, but also with a completely new chassis and updated components. Our detailed review will show whether this is enough to climb back to the top of our workstation ranking.
Chuh. Heavy, dude: HP ZBook 17 mobile workstation
Source: Reg Hardware English
HP isn't the only company to bandy around the "mobile workstation" moniker; Dell has offerings under this banner too. However, the ZBook 17 really weighs in – in every sense of the phrase – as a serious hulk of hardware with supporting accessories to maximise its versatility. Needless to say, it costs a lot of money and how much you value portability combined with visual purity and an abundance of interfacing, will be the ultimate decider on whether you'll be lugging a ZBook 17 around for years to come.

The ZBook 17 is dauntingly expensive. There are rivals that can match it for performance, upgradability or burly build – Dell’s Precision M4800 is hot on its heels in both areas – but the optional DreamColor display puts the ZBook in a different class. For applications that demand serious portable power and a colour-critical display, there’s simply nothing else like it.

NVIDIA Quadro K610M:

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.  

4900MQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.8 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
