The HP ZBook is a mobile workstation available as 15 and 17 inch models with the powerful Intel Core i7 CPU, from 16 to 64 gigabytes of RAM, and a full HD resolution display.
The 15-inch model can be used for design and control applications, as it features a full HD display and an NVIDIA Quadro M1000M or NVIDIA M2000M graphics card, depending on the configuration.
The 17-inch model can, in addition to design and control applications, also be used for SDI productions. It is available with either an NVIDIA Quadro M4000M or NVIDIA Quadro M5000M video card. For SDI productions, the HP ZBook must be extended with an AJA Io 4K external video board and require a Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter.
Both models come with the Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64 bit operating system.
