Conclusion: In the end, it's an easy recommendation: If you want an all-in-one workstation in your office, the HP Z1 is the only game in town. Oftentimes, a first-generation product has a few kinks that get ironed out by version 2.0. During our time with the system, however, we did not find the marriage of all-in-one and workstation an awkward one. The HP Z1 boasts a sleek design but is also easy to open for upgrades or repairs.
Pros: Sleek design, Professional-grade components, Easy-to-access internals for an all-in-one, Quiet operation

Summary: The HP Z1 workstation is about as far from an unappealing old box as it gets. It has a neat, all-in-one design that houses high-end performance parts behind a beautiful, 27in panel and it's very easy to open up the unit to access all those parts. Definitely a desirable unit.
Pros: Performance, Screen, Design
Cons: Can be hard to manoeuvre, Rear ports hard to access
Excerpt: 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 consumer-level components to create a computer that could even tempt many away from the Mac platform.
Pros: Great for image-based creatives; 10-bit display; fast chip; ECC RAM; easy to upgrade and repair
Cons: Glossy screen; not suitable for most CG or VFX work
Conclusion: O HP Z1 Workstation faz parte de uma nova categoria: a da estação de trabalho profissional all-in-one. Ele é poderoso, de fácil manutenção, e tem uma linda tela de 27”. Se você sabe que precisa de uma estação de trabalho e tem espaço restrito, o Z1 deveria estar no topo da sua lista.
Pros: Tela gigante e brilhante. Estação de trabalho all-in-one. Possui Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n de 2.4 e 5GHz. Porta DisplayPort com entrada/saída. Gabinete all-in-one expansível. SSDs. Suporte articulável. Gravador de Blu-ray.
