HP is adding a few new laptops to their lineup. The additions come to HP’s ZBook lineup, which focuses on creativity, security, and mobile work performance. HP’s also added a focus on having relatively light and slim laptops that still include “legacy” ports plus today’s standards. All total, the new ZBook’s will fit different needs but only if you have a budget above $1,400.
The ZBook Studio is the slimmer, lighter model that starts at $1,500. It also features a 4K, 15-inch display, supports Adobe RGB and comes with HP’s DreamColor. Depending on your needs and budget, you can outfit the laptop with a Xeon CPU, Intel Core i7, or i5 CPU. If you’re doing something more graphic intensive such as editing video or playing video games, you can add a NVIDIA Quadro graphics.
If you’really looking for something more powerful, you’ll want the Zbook 15 or ZBook 17 which starts at $1,400. The configurations only offer the Core i7 and Xeon CPU. You can choose between the NVIDIA Quadro cards or the AMD RadeonPro card. The ZBook 17 is capable of playing VR headsets at 90FPS.
The laptops are both powerful options that’ll help content creators accomplish work on the go. The computers will come with HP Sure Start security features. The features from Sure Start includes access to security features such as threat detection, encryption, malware protection, and a self-healing BIOS. HP will try and pitch users of the laptop these securities as a way to protect their IP from theft or other hacking.
The ZBook 17, ZBook 15, and ZBook Studio are available now and are on sale through the company’s website. If you max out the laptop in specs you’ll spend close to $2,000 for the most powerful option.
