HP's Zbook Review: A Laptop That's Lightyears Away From Apple's Ancient Mac Pro
HP’s latest Zbook laptop workstations with advanced features have been announced on Friday. Also called mobile workstations due to their heavy build, these laptops excel in many areas compared to Apple's aging Mac Pro. There are four new laptops unveiled in the fourth-generation of ZBook mobile workstations, which work flawlessly with creators to manage heavy graphics workloads.
These workhorse laptops feature Thunderbolt 3 ports, DDR4 memory, and Intel’s latest Kaby Lake-based Core. The processor used is Xeon coupled with the latest hard-working GPUs from Nvidia and AMD. By comparison, the Mac Pro has parts released in 2013, which include Thunderbolt 2 ports, an old AMD GPU, DDR3 memory and Intel Xeon processors developed from the Ivy Bridge architecture.
With specs lightyears away from Apple's Mac Pro, you can rely on HP's Zbook series for work like content creation, VR, and video editing. Furthermore, other Windows desktop workstations like Dell’s Precision desktops are also already far superior in technology than the Mac Pro. The Zbooks are primarily designed for VR content creation in mind.
For instance, the ZBook 17 G4 can be configured with either Xeon or Core processors. It also has a choice of Nvidia Quadro P4000 or P5000 graphics cards to display VR content running at 90 frames per second. According to PC World, the entry-level model is priced at $1,519, and boast features like the i5 processor, 8GB RAM, 500GB HDD storage, and a 17.3-inch display.
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.
