Professional level computer workstations have gone mobile. “Today, HP is redefining performance, innovation, and reliability,” says Jeff Wood, Hewlett-Packard Vice President of the Worldwide Product Management, Commercial Solutions Business Unit.

We got a sneak peek at these beauties when they made the announcement in New York City. The new portfolio includes three new HP ZBook Mobile Workstations (including an Ultrabook,) processor and graphics enhancements to the HP Z Desktop Workstations, and two new HP Z Displays.

ZBook Mobile Workstations

Designed for the professional that requires mobility, the new ZBook 14, 15, and 17 feature 4th Generation Intel Haswell dual- and quad-core processor options, and next-generation graphics technologies from NVIDIA (15 & 17) and AMD (14), including the newly announced Keplar-based professional graphics from NVIDIA. HP’s DreamColor display is available as an option for those who require precise color accuracy.

The ZBook 15 and 17 both feature a Thunderbolt port (as well as three USB 3.0 ports,) allowing for blazing fast connections to large external drives and devices. This will give you the ability to use PCI Express peripherals which can be mounted on an external chassis. Gary Adcock, from Studio 37 states, “that’s the power of Thunderbolt, that’s what Thunderbolt brings to the table. It’s no longer just a bus technology… it’s bringing the power of the desktop to mobile workstations.” read more...
