HP ZBook 17 G6 Series
When HP has introduced its lineup of new-generation mobile workstations, the ZBook 17 G6 has acquired the role of being the largest model in the lineup compared to its sibling, the ZBook 15 G6. Despite sharing some of the same upgraded components as the ZBook 15 G6, e.g. the latest 9th-Gen Intel Core i9 along with Xeon Processors, which goes as high as the 2.4 GHz Xeon E 2286M vPro processor with up to 5.0 GHz via Turbo Boost, this model does differ from its sibling in some ways. One of the biggest differences has to be the GPU: It features a more powerful NVIDIA Quadro RTX5000 as compared to the RTX3000 in the ZBook 15 G6. This GPU supports ray tracing, deep learning and also advanced shading. The ZBook 17 G6 also beats its sibling with its capability to incorporate up to three 1TB PCle Gen 3 x 4 NVMe TLC SSDs along with its existing features of three USB-3.0 ports, two USB Type-C ports (Thunderbolt 3 + DP 1.4 + USB-3.1 Gen-2) along with an HDMI port.
Just like the ZBook 15, this model also has up to 128 GB of RAM for massive tasks, perhaps to crunch data. The ZBook 17 G6 is certainly equipped with powerful components, but it might not be quite affordable for everyone. Therefore, there are also less expensive options which fit well into different budgets. For example the wide range of storage options, which allow up to 10 TB of storage along with an optical drive such as M.2 PCle, M.2 SATA and also 2.5-inch SATA SSDs for users to choose from. Apart from that, there are also less-powerful graphics options, such as the Intel UHD Graphics 630 and P630 or the NVIDIA T1000, RTX 3000 and RTX 4000, especially intended for users who are on a strict budget.
Similar to the ZBook 15, this model also incorporates features that focus on collaboration and digital communication. This includes the HP Privacy Camera, which physically covers the camera when it is not in use, and also the HP Collaboration Keyboard, which allows users to adjust the volume easily, connect or end a call and also gives the choice of muting/unmuting people. In addition, the ZBook 17 G6 comes with a third microphone which has the ability to pick up other voices around the meeting table and cancel them out with the HP’s ambient-noise cancellation technology built into this laptop. This feature definitely makes this laptop an awesome choice for corporate professionals out there. The overall design is still the same as its sibling’s with a nice aluminum build and a metallic finish, but due to its larger 17-inch screen size, this device needs a larger carrying bag to accommodate it. This model also carries a slightly larger 95.6Whr Polymer battery pack which reaches a battery life of up to 17 hours. Despite having great add-ons, the choice of owning the ZBook 17 is entirely subjective and depends on the user’s preferences.

You can hardly argue against a laptop such as the ZBook 17 G6. We mean, there are some obvious downsides to the machine, which can be ignored, simply because of the purpose of its build. First, at 3.20 kg it is not one of the heaviest we’ve tested, but standing at 33 mm height makes it one of the bulkiest devices of 2019.
