Reviews for the HP ZBook 15u G5 2ZC05EA

80.2% HP ZBook 15u G5 (FHD, i7-8550U) Workstation Review | Notebookcheck
Too much Office, not enough Workstation. The ZBook 1xu series is at the lower end of HP workstation devices. These models are based on the EliteBook to save costs. Find out in this review of the ZBook 15u G5 why this concept still doesn’t work.
HP ZBook 15u G5 review – ultra-mobile workstation
Source: Laptop Media English Archive.org version
Although the good performance of HP ZBook 15u G5 was entirely expected, the model surprised us with a great multitude of merits. The reliability and rigidity are very important for business machines and the HP company has made sure its 15u G5 is able to withstand 14 of the MIL-STD-810G military tests for work in harsh environments. Despite that, the model weighs just 1.77 kg and it also doesn’t lack elegance given the thickness of the aluminum body of just 18.25 mm.

Ревю на HP ZBook 15u G5 – ултра мобилна работна станция
Source: Laptop Mag English Archive.org version
Въпреки че доброто представяне на HP ZBook 15u G5 беше напълно очаквано, моделът все пак ни изненада приятно с много от своите качества. Надеждността и здравината са много важни за бизнес машините, а от HP са се погрижили 15u G5 да издържа на цели 14 от MIL-STD-810G военните тестове за работа при сурови условия. Въпреки това моделът тежи едва 1.77 килограма, а пък не му липсва и елегантност, имайки предвид дебелината на алуминиевото тяло от 18.25 мм.
Positive: Slim size and light weight; long battery life; comfortable keyboard; nice design. Negative: Poor display.

Comment

AMD Radeon Pro WX 3100: Entry level workstation graphics card based on the Polaris 12 chip like the consumer counterpart Radeon RX 540. Uses 512 shaders (8 compute units) and a 64 Bit GDDR5 memory system (96 GB/s).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

i5-8550U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,150 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

HP: Founded in 1939, the US company is a major server and printer manufacturer and one of the leading IT companies in the world. Until 2015, the company was called Hewlett-Packard Company. After a split, the computer division was renamed HP Inc.

80.2%: This rating is slightly above average, there are somewhat more devices with worse ratings. However, clear purchase recommendations look different.
