HP's Zbook Review: A Laptop That's Lightyears Away From Apple's Ancient Mac Pro
Source: iTech Post English
Used by NASA on the International Space Station, the HP's smaller ZBook 15 G4 comes with a 15.6-inch full HD display and boasts hardworking hardware for heavy work. According to ZD Net, HP is highlighting the effort that went into its design, plus accommodating aggressive GPUs and graphic cards. HP also plans to release a smaller ZBook 14u this summer with starting price at $1,079.

Model: With their never-ending conquest of packing desktop performance in a portable form factor, HP recently released their latest Zbook portable workstation. For starters, the 17.3 inch variant only supports up to standard Full HD panel, which is starting to feel very peasantry in 2017 especially considering its little brother, the Zbook 15, has a 4K panel option. While an additional 4K screen option would’ve been better because of its workstation DNA, it somewhat compensates this by being an IPS panel opposed to a regular TN panel, which means better viewing angles and less washed out colors when viewing under bright conditions and odd angles, not to mention its sRGB color space rating of 96%, which is similar to the previous generation. Although this might leave certain professionals wanting more especially those in the graphic design or photography field. Moving on to the heart of the beast, the Zbook is powered by a mobile workstation Intel Xeon E3-1535M v6 processor, which is considered the top end model of the Kaby-Lake-H series of processors. It also comes with 16 GB of DDR4 RAM by default and supports up to 64 GB with all slots filled. As for storage the Zbook comes with a 1 TB hard disk and a 512 GB PCIe based SSD boot drive. This should allow for snappy bootups and responsive app loading times thanks to its fast PCIe based SSD.

Along with its workstation class CPU the Zbook also packs heat in the graphics department with its Nvidia Quadro P4000 workstation GPU, which works flawlessly with professionals in managing graphics intensive workloads. Not to mention the Zbook line was designed with VR content creation in mind. One can rely on HP’s Zbook series for other workloads such as CAD, video editing and content creation. In terms of I/O the Zbook 17 G4 includes a myriad of interfaces including USB 3.0/3.1, Thunderbolt 3, VGA, HDMI, a standard 3.5 mm headphone jack, and an SD card reader. Special mention should be made that the user can charge or power the notebook through the Thunderbolt 3 port should they wish to. In addition to the above, the Zbook includes a smart card reader, Kensington lock, TPM security chip plus a fingerprint reader for added security. For wireless connectivity it's pretty much standard fare to see an Intel based solution such as the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 module and instead of a generic Realtek Gigabit Ethernet solution HP has decided to opt for Intel’s Gigabit Ethernet solution. The Zbook is also equipped with Bang & Olufsen HD audio certified speakers which provides a clear uncompromised sound. In terms of construction the Zbook is quite solid with minimal flex to the chassis. Unfortunately for the keyboard and touchpad there isn’t much to be said apart from being standard. In summary, if you are a professional looking to up the ante in terms of having a portable workhorse the HP Zbook 17 G4 should more than satisfy one's needs.
