HP is billing the ZBook 14 as the world's first workstation ultrabook

HP recently announced a number of additions to its workstation line, including three new mobile workstations - the Zbook 14, 15, and 17. The new laptops are intended for professionals in engineering, CAD, design, animation, or architecture and offer top-tier performance.

All three Zbooks feature HD displays, dual- and quad-core Intel Haswell processor options (up to Core i7), professional class GPUs such as NVIDIA Quadro or Keplar, or AMD FirePro, and new tool-free chassis (to simplify repairs and upgrades).

The 14-inch model also has the option of a touchscreen, up to 16 GB RAM, up to 1 TB of internal memory, and weighs just 3.57 pounds. The weight is a bit much for a device claiming to be an ultrabook (there's also no word on battery life), but it is likely the lightest device out there offering this level of performance.

The 15-inch model offers an optional QHD+ 3200 x 1800 display, up to 32 GB RAM, up to 1.8 TB of internal memory, a Thunderbolt port, and a battery life of up to 14 hours.

The 17.3-inch model features up to 32 GB RAM, up to 2.8 TB of internal memory, a Thunderbolt port, and a battery life of up to 12 hours.

The HP Zbook 15 and 17 are available now starting at US$1899 and US$1999 respectively. The Zbook 14 is expected to launch in late October. Pricing for this model has not yet been announced.
