Reviews for the HP ZBook Studio 16 G9, i9-12900H RTX 3080 Ti

If the HP ZBook Studio G9 is a terrific and relatively light content creation workstation, then why does it miss Editors' Choice honors? Well, the MSI CreatorPro X17 costs the same as our test unit with a larger 17.3-inch display, as well as a CPU and GPU that push it far ahead in our benchmarks. The M2 Max-powered 16-inch Apple MacBook Pro also outpaces the Studio G9 in several tests, and its $400 higher price gets you more memory, twice the storage, and four times the battery life. That's not to say we don't recommend the ZBook Studio G9. HP's workstation is as impressive a performer as last year's G8 was, especially given its choice of gaming rig or workstation GPUs. It's just that the competition has never been hotter, so creative pros, not laptop makers, are the real winners.
