HP ZBook Studio x360 was introduced to us as the world’s most powerful convertible PC. It is designed for professional video editing, graphic designing and game development. The mobile workstation is perfect for those who frequently travel and need portable, yet durable machines to keep up with them.
I have been using this HP ZBook studio workstation for over a week and am very impressed by its design and performance. It comes in an attractive design, encased in a sturdy chassis that is designed to pass 14 military standard tests. Thus, the system can admirably withstand extreme temperatures, vibrations and transportation shocks, dust invasion and drop shocks that come with constant travels. The design also makes it remarkably easy to switch between laptop, tent, tablet and docked modes.
I haven’t yet spilled anything, but the full-sized chiclet keyboard is made to be spill-resistant to prevent any damage from accidents. It is also chemically strengthened with a glass cover to greatly slow down wear and tear from frequent use. Despite this protection, it is pretty easy to type on the keyboard, and the spacious design facilitates fast typing as well.
The 15.6, 4K display is brilliant and lives up to its reputation. I like working outdoors, and not being able to view the screen properly in sunlight was always a problem with my previous laptops. However, the HP ZBook Studio x360 has an anti-glare display that can adapt to changing light conditions, and I had no problem viewing the screen even under the bright afternoon Sun.
The machine doesn’t hold back on power either. My HP ZBook Studio x360 came with 8th Gen Intel Core processors and a 32GB RAM, and had no problem handling multiple open browser tabs, video and gaming applications. The system didn’t heat up in spite of so many applications running simultaneously. The battery life is also praiseworthy. With maximum brightness and continuous usage, the battery lasted just over 6 hours.
Coming to security, HP has provided the mobile workstation with an impressive suite of advanced security features. It includes a fingerprint reader, self-healing BIOS and an optional integrated privacy screen.
Overall, the HP ZBook Studio x360 is indeed a powerful machine, with incredible, display, security and durability. It is value for money for the professionals who need to work on the go.
