HP made an addition to the ZBook lineup not too long ago with the ZBook x360 and it’s back at it once again. All of the models in the lineup are getting a hardware refresh which primarily includes the Core i9 processors from Intel. The new chips are available for the HP Zbook x360, ZBook Studio, ZBook 15, and the ZBook 17.
All of the aforementioned models can now be purchased with Intel’s eight-generation six-core i9 processors. Mirrored SSD storage is available as well. HP says that this hardware refresh will allow the notebooks to better handle heavy workloads such as 3D rendering. Those who tend to edit a lot of video on their machines may find these refreshed notebooks appropriate for their work as well.
The Studio and Studio x360 also get improved graphics. The old GPU has been replaced with the NVIDIA Quadro P2000. Customers who opt for the x360 will also be able to configure it with an anti-glare touchscreen which HP says is “20 percent brighter than the Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch Retina display and 50 percent brighter than the Dell XPS UltraSharp 4K display.”
Prices for the ZBook Studio x360 start at $1,499 whereas the ZBook Studio, ZBook 15, and ZBook 17 start at $1,349. The ZBook 15 and 17 can be configured with up to 128GB of RAM. They will be available this December.
