HP ZBook Firefly 14 G8 review – near silent mobile workstation
Source: Laptop Media English
At the end of the day, the HP ZBook Firefly 14 G8 is a solid offer when it comes to compact mobile workstations. The devil is in the details and that applies to this laptop as well – most of the goodies are optional which isn’t good news for most users because they have to pay extra if they need features like a Nano SIM card slot, NFC, fingerprint reader, SmartCard slot, and IR WebCam. As we said at the beginning of this article, even the backlight of the keyboard is an option. The HP ZBook Firefly 14 G8 is a compact workstation that has a quiet cooling solution and a silent keyboard. It has decent Intel Tiger Lake-UP3 CPU options, and you need a dedicated GPU, there is an NVIDIA Quadro T500 option. The notebook is compact, light, and well-built. At the same time, it has a decent I/O, great touchpad and keyboard, and you can choose between five display variants including touch screen panels.

80% HP ZBook Firefly 14 G8 review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The ZBook Firefly 14 G8 is a sleek, sturdy workstation that, thanks to its 9 hours of battery life, will stay powered through your workday so you’re not stuck in one place. With a reasonable starting price of around $1,500, and the ability to customize it to your needs, the ZBook Firefly 14 G8 is a mobile workstation that is worth taking a serious gander at. However, be aware that it can get pricey, depending on the configuration you need. You get the performance you pay for, but don’t expect proper workstation speeds. When you consider the slim, attractive design, port selection, security features, and gorgeous 14-inch display, the HP ZBook Firefly 14 G8 could be the right system for you.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
