HP ZBook moblie workstation: Is this the best workstation for you?
The recent digital revolution has paved the way for remote and offsite work. And given the pandemic situation, more and more employees are in need of capable laptops which can deliver the same performance which they have come to expect from their office desktops. A mobile workstation perfectly fills this role. And when it comes to mobile workstations, HP’s latest ZBook Firefly laptops, with their Intel i7 11th Gen processors, are strong candidates for being your next mobile workstation. And in this blog, which is one of our HP ZBook business workstation reviews, we will see what makes them great mobile workstations for any kind of work.
A mobile workstation has to fare well on two aspects – ‘performance’ and ‘display.’ And Zbook Firefly laptops far surpass the expectations on both of these aspects. It has a stunning 4K LED anti-glare screen with up to 1000 nits brightness. The screen is either 14 or 15-inch wide, enclosed within slim bezels. The color reproduction is great and images look sharp and vibrant with its DreamColor technology. While considering the performance factor, it is capable enough to run all modern 3D modeling applications with its i7 11th Gen Processor, NVidia T500 GPU, 32 GB RAM (expandable up to 64 GB). A 512 GB SSD (extendible to 2 TB) makes the applications load faster. Multitasking is effortless and it can handle any kind of heavy workload with ease.
Another important aspect of an ideal mobile workstation is ‘compactness.’ HP claims that the ZBook firefly 14 G8 is the world’s lightest and smallest 14-inch workstation, and it really stays true to this claim. Its minimum weight is 1.35 Kgs and it is small enough to provide excellent mobility. With its faster WiFi (adaptable to low-range networks) and long-lasting battery, you will be properly equipped to work for hours outside. The added support for 5G is also a great addition for people who travel to remote places and does not have WiFi connections available at the site. Other standard features include Thunderbolt 4 support, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, etc.
Security is one thing that a mobile workstation can not compromise on. And rest assured, HP has done a great job at implementing security features, both at hardware and software levels. Features like fingerprint scanning, privacy-shutter cam, password recovery, data encryption, workstation administration tools (HP Sure Sense, Sure Click, Sure Start), and a bunch of other utilities are more than enough to keep your system secure and healthy.
In conclusion, an HP ZBook workstation definitely deserves to be your next mobile workstation and worth its price. The stellar performance, extreme mobility, and strong security make these laptops an ideal business laptop for all types of business users.
