The HP ZBook Studio is sturdy, yet stylish mobile workstation from Hewlett Packard. The laptop has been built for powerful processing and is ideal for those who need fast editing and rendering.
This machine comes in an ultra-slim design, enveloped in a sturdy chassis. The laptop weight starts at 2 KG, so that you can easily take it with you. If you are someone who moves around a lot due to work, you will be happy to know that the HP ZBook Studio has passed 14 rigorous military-standard tests. So, even if you happen to drop it or go to areas with extreme temperatures, the laptop will not suffer from it.
My laptop comes with 8th Gen Intel Core processors, though the latest Intel Xeon processors are also available in the market. The RAM can go up to 64 GB. I ran multiple applications including video editing and rendering. The system did not heat up or show any lags despite the heavy applications.
The laptop comes with a brilliant HP DreamColor display. The brightness can go as high as 600 nits. Color rendering, with the ZBook studio’s 100% Adobe RGB coverage was without any fault. The display is anti-glare, meaning that it adapts to changing light conditions for a comfortable viewing experience. I took the laptop to work outside and did not have any trouble viewing the screen under the sunlight.
The HP ZBook Studio has Bang & Olufsen tuned speakers. They gave out a rich audio quality and bass when the volume was turned up.
The battery life of this laptop is up to 16 hours, depending on your usage. The laptop charges pretty quickly as well, reaching the 50% mark in just about 45 minutes.
The laptop also comes with advanced security provisions from HP. The most impressive security feature for me was the privacy camera. I could easily close my webcam with just a swipe of my finger.
The ZBook studio is well-equipped with all the ports a working professional can need, including dual Thunderbolt, USB 3.0 charging and HDMI ports.
All in all, the laptop is powerful and can ably handle heavy tasks. The HP ZBook laptop price is at par with its many features and provides great value for money.
