Conclusion: If you've heard about vendors sending carefully optimized, hand-tweaked systems to get good benchmark scores from review sites, we can reassure you that HP did no such thing: Whoever installed our Z200's FirePro V3800 card forgot to install its driver.
Conclusion: The HP Z200 is a small form factor workstation desktop for the space-constrained user with a "must-do-now" workload. It's much pricier than a regular business or consumer-grade system, but as they say, you get what you pay for.
Pros: Compact. Powerful. Expandable. HP Performance Advisor. No bloatware.
Cons: Only takes half-height expansion cards. No room for extra hard drives. No eSATA or USB 3.0. Expensive.
Conclusion: Testing and Performance I began testing the HP Z200 using the Cadalyst C2010 v5.3 Benchmark Test , which supports 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows. I tested the HP Z200 under the 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows XP x64 with Service Pack 2 and other updates installed.
Summary: The Intel Core i5 processor and dedicated Nvidia graphics may be overkill for many users, but the HP is a machine that offers impressive levels of power for reasonable prices. Factor in the rock-solid, easily upgradable chassis, and the Z200 could prove tempting for power users on a budget.
