1HP ZBooks Deliver High End Features for Enterprise Road Warriors
HP is pushing the boundaries of what a lightweight, compact notebook can deliver in its new ZBook models. These Windows 10 computers, the ZBook 15, ZBook 17 and the ZBook Studio, which HP calls mobile workstations, offer server-grade processing power and impressive graphics performance to appeal to corporate users. They also come with sophisticated security features and several terabytes of storage, allowing the enterprises to rely on them for years without fear of technology advancements leaving users behind. HP has committed to portability in the ZBook line by offering Ultrabook designs, and has even bundled virtual reality support. Still, the ZBook series is a little expensive even for PCs designed for enterprises. Here’s a look at the good and bad in HP’s new ZBook computers:
