Reviews for the HP ZBook Power G8, 11850H A2000

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.
