All in all, the ZBook 17 G4 is an elite computational workhorse that achieves workstation power once available only on the desktop (with the benefit that you can take it with you where you want to go). While it is not a machine for everybody, it is the ultimate machine for power users looking for incredibly high levels of performance. The 4K DreamColor display is a true pleasure to look at and work with, and it makes a big difference when working on color-critical assignments. It is a natural choice for those who work in media and entertainment. That lot includes filmmakers, colorists, visual-effects artists, animators, video editors, illustrators, and photo retouchers, as well as VR-content creators who require a powerful GPU for both creation and proofing. Users of Adobe Creative Suite, the AutoDesk family of products, or Maxon Cinema 4D (and other resource-hungry applications) will find in the ZBook 17 G4 the ultimate creative partner.
