HP ZBook 15

The HP ZBook 15 is an incredibly powerful workstation or desktop replacement for professionals whose work requires a lot of computing power. It features a stylish magnesium frame with a brushed aluminum casing, which is surprisingly fingerprint resistant. It's extremely thick and heavy, at 1.2 inches (3.05 cm) and weighing a back breaking 6.2 pounds (2.81 kg).

Much of its bulk and weight is due to the workstation being designed to be customized and can support up to 3 hard drives. It has a 15.6 inch anti-glare display with standard 1920 by 1080 HD resolution, and the brightness is strong enough to display clearly under strong light conditions. The ZBook 15 also boast a full sized backlit keyboard and 2 sets of buttons on the touchpad.

For its price, the ZBook15 sure packs powerful combination of ISV certified hardware. With Intel i7 processor and Nvidia Quadro K2100M graphics card, this laptop is optimized for Computer Aided Design, simulation, programming, video rendering, and more. With all its processing power, battery life still fared reasonably well at over 3 hours.

85% Review HP ZBook 15 Workstation | Notebookcheck
Pure business. The ZBook series may be new, but its first models are coming out with a bang. Following on the footsteps of the ZBook 17, the ZBook 15 is everything the EliteBook series is and more. We take a closer look at the $2999 model in this full review.

If you need workstation power in a laptop then the zBook is worth a look. However, we wouldn't recommend investing in this as a desktop replacement. You'd be better off investing in an actual desktop workstation like the Z1 or even the Mac Pro - which provides Xeon power, SSDs, discrete graphics and plenty of expansion potential.

80% HP ZBook 15 review: This mobile workstation packs the features—and the pounds
Source: PC World English
Our ZBook 15 shipped with the Windows 7 Professional operating system (you can order Windows 8 Pro as a no-cost option). Corporations are migrating to Windows 8 slower than they did to Vista, so this is an important option. A three-year warranty is standard with every ZBook 15, but there are four- and five-year next business-day, on-site plans available for $149 and $259 respectively. Accidental damage and post-warranty coverage is also available.

Source: Slashgear English
As far as workstations go, the HP ZBook 15 lives up to its claims, and will meet a variety of needs including those of business and government workers. The myriad of security features in particular are a nice touch, and the battery life is excellent for a laptop as large and powerful as the ZBook 15. The design is conservative, which is to be expected from a notebook that is in part targeted at business workers and government personnel as well as designers and those with demanding needs, but it does have some personality, so you won’t be carrying around a uni-color brick.

Color master. The HP ZBook 15 mobile workstation is available in a variety of configurations. The first version we reviewed already proved itself in our battery of tests. Now we turn our sights to a configuration with a high-intensity DreamColor display and a speedy Nvidia Quadro K2100M graphics card. What can you expect from this combination?

The HP ZBook 15 certainly isn't cheap, but mobile workstations that are sturdily built, easily upgradable and high spec-d don't come cheap. If you're a designer using CAD programs, an architect, video editor or engineer and want Quadro graphics rather than the gaming oriented GeForce graphics cards in gaming laptops, the ZBook is just the sort of machine to look at.

Performance alternative. HP reworked its workstation series and now offers some new features. We decided to equip the HP ZBook 15 G2 with the AMD FirePro M5100 and the high-resolution QHD+ display. We tested how well the two components suit the established working device.

The HP succeeds in several key departments: fantastic application power and solid graphical ability mean it’ll scythe through virtually all work applications, it’s got plenty of ports, and good interior access. The keyboard and trackpad, too, are decent. The screen is bettered elsewhere, though, and Apple’s Macbook has a better keyboard and superior battery life. Rivals are also cheaper in most instances.

The ZBook 15 arrives with a specification that’s got the power to handle almost all work applications, and that’s paired with impressive versatility – inside and out. The high-resolution screen is a mixed bag, though, and other systems are more ergonomically sound. The price for this configuration is is too high too; unless you plan to use every feature, other machines offer similar power at lower prices.

Its excellent performance in professional applications is well matched with its outstanding build quality, good keyboard and touchpad and arsenal of ports including true docking station support.

70% HP ZBook 15u G2 review: Tough but portable, HP's ZBook laptop will appeal to a professional audience
Source: PC Advisor English
Hewlett Packard has done well to build a lighter weight 15-inch mobile workstation laptop with much of the strength and integrity of its traditional models that are far less mobile in real terms. Sacrifices have been made to the main CPU by fitting dual-core rather than quad-core, and the AMD GPU is a middleweight part rather than fire-breathing FirePro. But importantly the 15u runs cool and quiet enough not make itself a nuisance, even under load. Assuming the version we tested will cost under £2000 it could provide decent value, majoring on resilience more than style and sheer performance, but well enough equipped to prove attractive to the target professional audience.

There's no denying the HP ZBook 15u G2 is a competent workhorse of a notebook. I used it as my primary work computer for many days, and it was always quick in downloading files and smooth to use with multiple programs open. While bulkier, you can get the Lenovo W550s with comparable specs -- and its exceptional battery life - for about $200 less.

With its slim ultrabook design, the HP ZBook 15u G2 goes anywhere, and the combination of Intel Core i7-5600u processor and AMD FirePro M4170 graphics provide moderate workstation capabilities, perfect for content creation and editing. The performance won't match a full-fledged mobile workstation, but the portability counterbalances those concessions with a low weight and decent battery life, great for working with media on the go or in the field.

A sort of one-size-fits-all for the productive professional, the ZBook 15u G2 is an acceptable, if overly expensive addition to a lineup of high-powered portables that promise users a mix of functionality and style in one. This is a computer that be great to have at work, but also wouldn’t be bad to pop open on the sofa at home. It can’t game all that well, but considering it’s not made to, that oversight can slide.

HP ZBook 15u G3

The HP ZBook 15u G3 is a thin-and-light mobile workstation clad in a magnesium-reinforced casing. The display lid features a soft-touch paint around the perimeter with a stylish yet still rather subdued aluminum inlay in the middle. The display lid is thin yet rigid, and it does a good job of resisting twisting or pressure from the back. The HP ZBook 15u G3 is configurable with a few different display options. Among them are three 1080p displays - a standard TN LED anti-glare display, an anti-glare IPS panel with Panel Self-Refresh, and a touch panel with a glossy finish - and a 3840x2160 high-end IPS display. The HP ZBook 15u G3 is configured with the Intel Core i7-6600U. The Intel Core i7-6600U has a base clock rate of 2.6 GHz, with Turbo frequencies of up to 3.4 GHz (single-core) and 3.2 GHz (dual-core). This is certainly powerful enough for everyday activities, but the limitations of a dual-core chip should be considered before deciding on something as critical as a professional workstation.For most users, it will be perfectly adequate, especially when paired with the dedicated AMD FirePro W4190M GPU and 16 GB of DDR4 RAM. The keyboard is backlit and key visibility is good. To the right of the keyboard is a full-sized number pad, which those doing a lot of data entry are sure to appreciate. During continuous web surfing, the 3910 mAh battery is able to last up to 5 hours 12 mins before running out of juice. Standard accessories for the HP ZBook 15u G3 are a 720p HD webcam, internal speakers, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, dual SIM, 3 USB 3.0 ports, a fingerprint reader and an SD card reader.

Affordable, portable, professional… The HP ZBook 15u G3 brings us a thin-and-light mobile workstation with capable specs, all within the realm of affordability. But is it a workstation, or is it an Ultrabook… or is it a little bit of both?

The HP Zbook 15u G3 is an odd laptop. It has almost everything most professionals could want out of a workstation, but not quite enough. HP not only fumbles the software but it also chose to include a surprisingly mediocre screen. That might be excusable in a cheaper laptop, but not in a portable workstation that costs so much.

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?

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.

Comment

HP: The Hewlett-Packard Company, founded 1935, commonly referred to as HP, is a technology corporation headquartered in California, United States. HP specializes in developing and manufacturing computing, storage, and networking hardware, software and services. Major product lines include personal computing devices, enterprise servers, related storage devices, as well as a diverse range of printers and other imaging products. Other product lines, including electronic test equipment and systems, medical electronic equipment, solid state components and instrumentation for chemical analysis. HP posted US $91.7 billion in annual revenue in 2006, making it the world's largest technology vendor in terms of sales. In 2007 the revenue was $104 billion, making HP the first IT company in history to report revenues exceeding $100 billion. 

Up to 2015, the company was named Hewlett Packard Company. After a split, the computer range was renamed to HP Inc.

In the laptop segment, HP was the world's largest manufacturer from 2014 to 2016 with a market share of 20-21% from 2014 to 2016, but they only exceed Lenovo by a small margin as of recently. HP is not present in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

NVIDIA Quadro K610M:

Workstation graphics card based on the GK107 Kepler architecture with 192 shaders and a 64-Bit wide memory bus.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA Quadro K2100M:

Workstation graphics card based on the GK106 Kepler architecture with 576 shaders and a 128-Bit wide memory bus.

AMD FirePro M5100: Professional workstation graphics card based on the GCN architecture with GDDR5 graphics memory and certified drivers.AMD FirePro W4170M: Professional mid-range workstation graphics card which is most likely based on the same Mars chip as the Radeon HD 8790M.NVIDIA Quadro M2000M: Mainstream workstation graphics card based on the GM107 Maxwell architecture with 640 shaders and a 128-bit wide memory bus. The GPU is similar to the consumer GTX 960M/950M.NVIDIA Quadro M1000M: High-end workstation graphics card based on the GM107 Maxwell architecture with 512 shaders and a 128-Bit wide memory bus.NVIDIA Quadro M2200: Mid-range workstation graphics card based on the Maxwell architecture (28nm GM206 chip similar to the new revision of the Geforce GTX 965M).Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

AMD FirePro W4190M: Professional lower-mid-range workstation graphics card which is based on the same Mars chip as the Radeon HD 8790M and FirePro W4170M.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
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.  

4800MQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.7 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.7 GHz.
