PC maker HP Inc, has unveiled new ZBook mobile workstations for engineering and creative professionals featuring enhanced performance and a more portable form factor.
The notebooks—the ZBook Studio and the ZBook Create—share the same form factor but differ on their CPU and graphics configurations, with the ZBook Studio the higher-end model, HP said.
The new ZBook mobile workstations will target heavy-duty creators—such as developers, engineers, designers and architects—when they launch a few months from now, HP said. The new ZBooks will be suited for demanding work in areas such as virtual reality, artificial intelligence and 3-D, the vendor said.
What follows are the key things to know about HP’s forthcoming ZBook Studio and ZBook Create.
The ZBook Studio and ZBook Create will include a 15.6-inch display with 4K/UHD resolution, and choices between LCD and OLED display technologies. There will also be an option for HP’s integrated privacy screen, Sure View Reflect, which prevents “visual hacking” from onlookers, HP said.
The colour accuracy of the display should be a major selling point for creative professionals, according to HP. The “DreamColour” display offers a “built-in colorimeter for automatic self-calibration, 100% sRGB and Adobe RGB for accuracy, and over a billion colours for smoother shading and more consistent gradients,” HP said in a press statement.
In addition, the notebooks are designed to have minimal bezels around the display, providing an 87% screen-to-body ratio on the devices, HP said.
