Reviews for the HP ZBook 15

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.

With potent performance and rock-solid construction, the HP ZBook 15 might be the mobile workstation you need in your office. While the battery life is a little lackluster, the combination of powerful processing and graphics with HP’s DreamColor display is a winner.

With potent performance and rock-solid construction, the HP ZBook 15 might be the mobile workstation you need in your office. While the battery life is a little lackluster, the combination of powerful processing and graphics with HP's DreamColor display is a winner. While the HP EliteBook 8560w offers more graphics oomph and the Dell Precision boasts longer battery life, there's still a lot to be said for the ZBook 15's category leading performance.

HP ZBook 15 Review
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.

If you're willing to pay its $2,486 price tag, the HP ZBook 15 won't disappoint. The 15.6-inch workstation PC boasts faster performance than your average mainstream laptop in most circumstances, sports a beautiful matte, 1920 x 1080 resolution display and can last long on a single charge.

Comment

Model:

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.

NVIDIA Quadro K610M:

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

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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. 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.


15.60":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2.82 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
