HP ZBook Power G7 review – pristine build quality, supreme security, and commendable performance
Source: Laptop Media English
In general, the ZBook Power G7 is a very solid mobile workstation. Not only when it comes to power, but also, when you take in place the user experience. Once you purchase this unit, you will be complemented by the backlit spill-resistant keyboard, which extremely comfortable to use. Also, despite the lack of dedicated buttons, the touchpad feels solid and has an exceptional clicking mechanism

The ZBook Power G8 is poised to be HP's most affordable mobile workstation when it launches. (It's expected to ship, and pricing should be announced, in June.) But you'd never know it from the pre-production unit the company sent us. Our preview configuration features a screaming eight-core Intel Core i9-11950H processor (one of Intel's just-announced "Tiger Lake-H" top-end mobile CPUs), a 4K instead of 1080p resolution display, a hefty 64GB of RAM, and a 2TB solid-state drive. The only less-than-top-of-the-line thing about it is that its RTX A2000 is only the fourth-fastest of the Nvidia's new professional GPUs. But HP had to save something for the new ZBook Studio G8 and ZBook Fury G8 models higher up the stack and released alongside the Power G8.

HP ZBook Power G8
Source: PC Mag English
Our current Editors' Choice honoree among mobile workstations is the Lenovo ThinkPad P15 (the P15 Gen 2 is now in our review pipeline), but not all engineering and tech college students or small-office architects can afford such a powerhouse. The HP ZBook Power G8 is a 15.6-inch laptop that starts at $1,899 ($4,013 as tested). It's more for 2D design than 3D CGI rendering or virtual reality creation—its Nvidia RTX A2000 is only the graphics chipmaker's fourth fastest professional GPU—and it doesn't offer the Intel Xeon processors, error-correcting-code (ECC) memory, or dazzling DreamColor screens of HP's best ZBooks. But the Power still packs plenty of muscle for crunching large datasets, and has enough winning features to snare an Editors' Choice award of its own for entry-level mobile workstations.

70% HP ZBook Power G8 review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The stellar performance of the HP ZBook Power G8 may be enough to make some overlook the issues with the laptop — this is a workstation after all. But with a number of solid alternatives on the market, it shouldn’t be your first choice. For most users, there are just too many tradeoffs in a laptop that could be several thousand dollars when configured properly. Creatives, in particular, need to look elsewhere; the display is simply not suitable for video or photo work. Even for those that aren’t worried about the display, the heat rises to the level of being a concern to me as 110 degrees is considerably beyond our threshold and concerning for the overall thermal performance of this laptop. The HP ZBook Power G8 is a capable workstation that is able to tackle most computing tasks thrown at it, but unless you are essentially using it as a desktop and aren’t affected by many of the drawbacks that I’ve pointed out, there are better options available.

HP ZBook Power G8 review – a finished product with remarkable build quality
Source: Laptop Media English
Okay guys, today we have a huge dilemma waiting to be solved. Should you buy the ZBook Power G8, Dell Precision 15 3561, or Lenovo ThinkPad P15v Gen 2. Ultimately, they are all mobile workstations, which claim to be on the more affordable section of the market. Well, starting with the design, the HP we had here today is the only device of the three to come with a metal design. Additionally, the build quality is on point, and we observed high structural integrity. Additionally, one of the two M.2 PCIe x4 slots supports Gen 4 drives, and both M.2 slots can work in RAID mode. Respectively, the I/O seemed pretty standard, although the lack of an SD card reader was a bit unsettling. Nevertheless, you get Thunderbolt 4 support. Other features include an optional IR face recognition scanner, a fingerprint reader, and a privacy shutter on the HD Web camera. Thankfully, the keyboard is comfortable for typing, has a backlight, and is spill-resistant. As for the battery, it lasted for 8 hours and 28 minutes of Web browsing, and 13 hours and 31 minutes of video playback.

In our laptop test, HP's affordable ZBook Power 15 G8 with Intel's Core i7-11800H shows a good but inconsistent workstation performance. Our test unit comes with an Nvidia T600 and scores with a very good battery life, excellent input devices, and bright FDH panel.

HP specializes in developing and manufacturing computing, storage, and networking hardware, software and services. Major product lines include personal computing devices, enterprise servers, related storage devices, as well as a diverse range of printers and other imaging products. Other product lines, including electronic test equipment and systems, medical electronic equipment, solid state components and instrumentation for chemical analysis. HP posted US $91.7 billion in annual revenue in 2006, making it the world's largest technology vendor in terms of sales. In 2007 the revenue was $104 billion, making HP the first IT company in history to report revenues exceeding $100 billion. 

Up to 2015, the company was named Hewlett Packard Company. After a split, the computer range was renamed to HP Inc.

 

In the laptop segment, HP was the world's largest manufacturer from 2014 to 2016 with a market share of 20-21% from 2014 to 2016, but they only exceed Lenovo by a small margin as of recently. HP is not present in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA Quadro T1000 Max-Q: Mid range dedicated graphics card for professional laptops that offers 768 shaders and therefore less than the GTX 1650. Uses the TU117 chip without raytracing or Tensor cores. The more power-efficient Max-Q variant is using lower clock speeds. Currently two variants with 35 and 40 Watt power consumptions are known.

NVIDIA T1200 Laptop GPU: Mid range dedicated graphics card for professional laptops based on the consumer GTX 1650 Ti. Therefore it uses the Turing architecture without raytracing and Tensor cores.

NVIDIA RTX A2000 Laptop GPU: Mid-range professional laptop graphics card based on the Ampere GA107 chip with 2,560 CUDA cores. Similar to the consumer GeForce GTX 3050 Ti with certified drivers. Available in different performance variants ranging from 35 - 95 W TGP (max. power consumption).

NVIDIA T600 Laptop GPU: Mid range dedicated graphics card for professional laptops based on the consumer GTX 1650. Therefore it uses the Turing architecture without raytracing and Tensor cores.
