Reviews for the HP ZBook 15 G3

85.4% HP ZBook 15 G3 Workstation Review | Notebookcheck
Extremely expensive, extremely good? HP’s mobile workstations are traditionally some of the most expensive devices on the market. This did not change with the new ZBook 15 G3. But can the notebook for 4,000 Euros (~$4558) meet our high expectations?

All told, we were a little underwhelmed by the display—an unfortunate first impression for a workstation, and one we're sure would be reversed by the 4K DreamColor panel—but otherwise impressed by the HP ZBook 15 G3. It racked up win after win in our benchmark tests (and is the second fastest mobile workstation we've put through SPECviewperf), and can be configured as a real powerhouse in a 5.7-pound package.
