HP Zbook X2 G4 Workstation review: An unbelievably powerful creative tablet

 

The mobile creative's dream, with a staggering amount of power packed inside a tablet

Handy shortcut buttons ; Digital artists will love the DreamColor display ; Solid kickstand

Short battery life ; Bulky for a tablet ; Expensive

Despite its imperfections, I’m a fan of this rugged little machine. If your job relies on Adobe programs, it could save you time, and potentially open up new ways of working.

HP's ZBook x2 G4 melds class-leading Wacom feel with HP DreamColor accuracy

 

HP's detachable workstation melds class-leading Wacom feel with HP DreamColor accuracy and hits the bullseye for some.

The HP ZBook x2 G4's Adobe RGB-accurate DreamColor matte screen is far more usable than the typical glossy panel, and combined with Wacom EMR's 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity provides brushes that feel more natural than most to work with. It's...

As long as you aren't constrained by the stylus and are comfortable with the cost, the HP ZBook x2 G4 DreamColor delivers accurate color and smooth sketching with workstation credibility.

2018 HP ZBook X2 G4 review: This is the best detachable workstation for creative professionals

 

The HP ZBook X2 G4 isn't new to the market but this year HP has added a few horses under the hood which should make creative professionals very happy.

There is no doubt in my mind, the HP ZBook X2 G4 is the best detachable PC for creators and artists. It has the power and features under the hood to satisfy the work needs of photographers, designers, videographers, and artists. I wouldn’t recommend...

HP ZBook x2 G4 Detachable Workstation review: A hybrid for creatives

 

If an ordinary laptop won't cut it performance-wise you need to step up to a mobile workstation, and HP has several contenders in its ZBook range: late last year we looked at the ZBook 14u G4 and found that while it was robust, performance was...

Excellent pen and great pen configuration tools ; Good keyboard ; Solid build ; Good performance ; Solid kickstand

Moderate battery life ; Disappointing audio ; Expensive

HP's Overkill Convertible Makes Your Surface Pro Look Wimpy and Weak

 

Want a laptop that lets you get in a quick Overwatch match after you're done editing some video on its 4K display? How about a convertible that lets you crank out screeds even with the keyboard a few feet away? Need a tablet that lets you create and...

Color-accurate 4K anti-glare display. Detachable Bluetooth keyboard is genius.
