Reviews for the HP ZBook Studio G4, Xeon E3-1535M
If you're a demanding power user, the HP ZBook is where the party's at. Between the Intel Xeon 1535M (7th Gen) processor and 32GB of ECC memory, it totally dominated our CPU benchmark. In addition to the powerful internals, the display is really colorful as well. It's also bright enough to easily combat glare and ambient light. Last but not least, the FastCharge feature is a blessing, as it reaches a full charge in a little under an hour. While there's a lot we like, we had a few gripes.

At more than $3,000, the HP ZBook Studio G4 is expensive even for a mobile workstation. Its larger cousin, the HP ZBook 15 G4, offers better computing performance at the same price point, so it's the workstation to buy unless weight is the most important factor. Still, maxing out the processor and memory options on the Studio G4 will result in a top-notch performer, and one that's arguably worth its expense if you need ISV certification and copious computing power in a slim package that can be upgraded with even better components in a few years.

Mobile workstation customers are arguably the most demanding of all laptop buyers, and certainly the least likely to see the dream of ultrabook slimness, 20-hour battery life, and raging horsepower packed into the same machine. That means the HP ZBook Studio G4 inevitably makes compromises (though not as many, we'd wager, as the dual-core-CPU'd ZBook 14u and 15u, which are aimed more at execs who need to view, but not create, complex models). To put it another way, we rewarded the ZBook 15 G4's speed and expandability with our Editors' Choice; the Studio, at least the non-DreamColor model seen here, falls an inch short.

CommentNVIDIA Quadro M1200: Mainstream workstation graphics card based on the GM107 Maxwell architecture with 640 shaders and a 128-bit wide memory bus. The GPU is similar to the consumer GTX 960M.
