HP ZBook 17 G4

 

Formidable in every way (starting with its price), the HP ZBook 17 G4 mobile workstation and its color-calibrated UHD display are ready for the most demanding jobs, from video editing and 3D rendering to VR authoring.

Stunning 4K DreamColor display. Two Thunderbolt 3 ports. VR-ready Nvidia Quadro P5000 graphics.

Expensive. Bulky. Brief battery life.

Bottom Line: Formidable in every way (starting with its price), the HP ZBook 17 G4 mobile workstation and its color-calibrated UHD display are ready for the most demanding jobs, from video editing and 3D rendering to VR authoring.

HP ZBook Studio G4 (Xeon, Quadro M1200, DreamColor) Workstation Review

 

Criticism accepted. HP does not touch the chassis of the ZBook Studio G4 and focuses on the internals. Our test model shows this was a good decision. The DreamColor display is also very good, and both the temperature as well as noise development are...

very good chassis ; many ports ; good input devices ; very good display, ...

...but PWM and no Optimus support ; short battery runtime ; no WWAN ; no SmartCard reader ; no Pointstick ; high price

The ZBook Studio G4 – similar to the other mobile workstations from HP – only got a small update this year. However, the case was already very good, so this is not a deal-breaker. Besides some updated components, the manufacturer also took care of the...

HP ZBook 17 G4 Review and Ratings

 

The ZBook 17's advanced features, top-shelf Quadro GPU, and huge DreamColor display aren't for everyone (or even every pro content creator). But those who demand max computational performance at any price will thrill to it: filmmakers, architects, and...

Configurable to chart-topping workstation power ; Stunning 4K DreamColor display ; Nvidia "Pascal" Quadro GPU with 16GB ; Thunderbolt 3 support, with two ports ; Highly expandable

Only moderate battery life with 4K panel

All in all, the ZBook 17 G4 is an elite computational workhorse that achieves workstation power once available only on the desktop (with the benefit that you can take it with you where you want to go). While it is not a machine for everybody, it is the...

So far so good

 

So far, this has been a great machine. It is a beast though, yes it is pretty fast, but it's heavy. However for my need that is not a concern. I have not had a chance to really push the limits yet, but have confidence that it will take on pretty much...

Love this Screen!

 

Love the UHD Dreamcolor screen. So sharp the color accuracy is so amazing. Second zBook17 I have owned. Don't know if i needed the Xeon setup but can't complain. Maybe next one I will go with will be the i7 for a little less and similar performance....

Seems good, but can't get past screen problems

 

I have been using HP for many years and have been satisfied about the overall quality. This laptop has a great feature set and is highly customizable. I really WANT to like this laptop. However, the display panel (17.3" diagonal LED FHD UWVA Anti-Glare...

Solid Laptop

 

Excellent performance with a Xeon Chip and fantastic frame. 1 old USB 2.0 port would have been nice, since I still have accessories that are not compatible with 3.0 USB. Otherwise it is a fantastic system.

Not a real good first impression

 

After the forth time I turned on the work station it would not start up. Just a black screen. I called support and they walked me through some troubleshooting steps and determined that the it had a bad mother board. They sent a tech out and replaced...
