Summary: I bought this model in Australia, but was astounded when i opened the box and saw Wired keyboard and mouse, and only a dvd reader, (yes this is in the specs but was hoping it was a mistake Hp are known for this, but took the risk as I really wanted this). I was hoping seeing they are so expensive that these would be included. I ended up getting a slot load blu ray from ebay and it was easy to open it up and replace the dvd writer, thats the benefit of this machine.
Summary: You have review this as an alterative to Mac and i think you are forgetting the CAD audience. The Z1 is perfectly suited for the CAD arena with the Quadro graphics, large screen and the upgrade options. The All-In-One design keeps the the wires to a minimum and the 2560x1440 allows you to have a good working area while keeping the toolbars on the screen.
