HP Z1 G3 review


A powerful workstation that does quick work of anything you throw at it

Fantastic performance ; Compact form factor ; Easy to upgrade

Base can't rotate left/right ; GPU performance will fall short slightly against desktop GPUs

If you're in the market for a powerful workstation but want something that's space saving and easy to upgrade, then the HP Z1 G3 is your ideal match. The HP Z1 G3 appeals to a very particular subset of professional users, i.e. those that are looking...

HP Z1 G3 (2016) Workstation review


HP has produced a highly impressive all-in-one workstation

4K display ; Excellent performance ; Very compact

Limited graphics upgradability ; Limited use case

As with the Z1 G2, the G3 is not quite enough to make desktop workstations obsolete. The price of 4K monitors has dropped which means that you will get a base unit workstation with a monitor for under a grand if you shop around.

HP Z1 Workstation review


Desktop PC systems are rapidly becoming old hat, even when it comes to powerful systems for design, production and video editing work. A large part of the credit for that goes to Apple - its iMac all-in-one computers proved that a compact design...

Whether you're kitting out a design department or creating your own digital artist's studio, this powerful all-in-one will meet your every need

HP Z1 review


And that isn't an exaggeration: This all-in-one workstation PC, the first of its kind, has a gorgeous 27-inch edge-to-edge glass screen, packs desktop-class components, and will set you back a cool £2,805 inc VAT. Our review model sports an Intel Xeon...

The HP Z1 Workstation is gorgeous and powerful, but it's definitely not perfect. My biggest issue with the system is that it lacks a touchscreen, a feature that most of its competitors have. The Z1 also has difficult-to-access ports, an inconveniently...

HP Z1 workstation review


While the Z1 sits within HP's Z-series of workstations aimed at CG, VFX and video pros, this all-in-one is more for designers, photographers and illustrators – albeit ones with big budgets. HP has taken Apple's iMac and upgraded many of its...

Great for image-based creatives; 10-bit display; fast chip; ECC RAM; easy to upgrade and repair

Glossy screen; not suitable for most CG or VFX work

HP Z1 Workstation review


This 27in All-in-One packs an Intel Ivy Bridge Xeon processor, 8GB of RAM and unprecedented access to the components. But is it worth the £2500 price?

HP should be commended for putting together the most impressive All-in-One we've ever seen. Those after pure power would still be better served by a traditional workstation, though, and the price means it's likely to be reserved for the wealthiest of...

HP Z1 Workstation Review: Pretty, Powerful, and Pricey, but Not Perfect


The new HP Z1 Workstation is the most attractive, most powerful, and most expensive all-in-one PC I've ever seen. And that isn't an exaggeration: This all-in-one workstation, the first of its kind, has a gorgeous 27-inch edge-to-edge glass screen,...

Very powerful ; Bright and beautiful screen

Inconvenient port placement ; No touchscreen option

The expensive Z1 all-in-one has both brains and beauty, but it also has some issues that are impossible to ignore.
