HP ZBook 14 Review: Mobile Workstation Meets Ultrabook
3 weeks ago
Conclusion: I admit to being a bit skeptical of the potential for the ZBook to function as a mobile workstation while fitting into an Ultrabook form factor. While there are certainly some compromises made to get there – the use of a dual-core ULV CPU being the biggest compromise – depending on your needs the ZBook 14 could be exactly what you're after.
Summary: Getting back to our original question posed earlier, should you consider the ZBook 14? If you're a user in need of professional-level graphics and workstation-class performance in a slim and relatively light package, then absolutely you should put this on your short list. The same is true even if you're simply looking for a high-performance laptop for the daily grind. It's rugged, fast, and flexible in terms of the different tasks it can handle.
Pros: Top Shelf Performance:, Look and Feel:, Plenty of USB 3.0 Ports:, Tool-Free Access:, Software:, Viewing Angles:
Summary: Slim, fast, perfect? HP slimmed down its 14-inch mobile workstation this year and focused on frugal components. We tested if the device can meet the high performance requirements of the customers.
Pros: System performance, Battery runtimes, Weight, Input devices, Display, System noise, Ports, Maintainability, Warranty period, The overall package of CAD capabilities in combination with the very good display and the very appealing mobility.
Cons: Maximum opening angle of the display, Position card reader, Distance between the ports, CAD performance, More space between the ports, another more powerful graphics card and better color accuracy values for cyan.
Conclusion: The ZBook 14 carries HP's three-year standard parts and labor warranty. As configured for this review, its list price is $2,399. (For the record, the 8570w was priced at $2,786.) Although it won't replace your desktop workstation for the heavy lifting, the HP ZBook 14 offers good performance and great battery life in a small, lightweight package, and does so at an affordable price.
Summary: The sleek HP ZBook 14 isn't just a powerful mobile workstation; it can also serve as a very capable multimedia laptop during your downtime. Its keyboard is comfortable enough to use during long workdays, and the machine's MIL-STD 810G certification means it can stand up to the bumps and bruises of everyday life.
Pros: Powerful performance, Fast and large SSD, Robust security software, Comfortable keyboard, Sleek design

Summary: HP's ZBook 14 is an Ultrabook that's also a mobile workstation. It weighs just under 2kg, yet it offers processing power that can be used to run design and modelling applications such as 3ds Max. Basically, it's the type of Ultrabook to go for if you want something mobile that will also help you get your work done while on the road. It's strong and has plenty of useful ports, but its keyboard could be a little better.
Pros: Strong chassis and lid, Easy access to internal components, Full HD, matte screen
Cons: Bottom panel can cause noise while typing, Lots of pre-installed background software
Conclusion: The HP ZBook 14 neither turns the world of business computing upside down nor does it bring anything relatively new to the table. When your primary concern is an ultrabook that provides the tools you need to get your job done quickly and securely, none of that matters. HP knows this, and that philosophy drives this laptop through and through.
HP ZBook 14 – симбиоз ультрабука и рабочей станции
23 April 2014
Conclusion: На сегодняшний день НP ZBook 14 представляет собой самую мобильную рабочую станцию в мире, мощную, работоспособную, в солидном и внешне презентабельном корпусе ультрабука. Нельзя сказать, что он обладает исключительно положительными чертами, есть и недочеты. К примеру, очень нравится высочайшее качество сборки устройства, удобство пользования клавиатурой, хороший дисплей, скорость работы SSD и возможность увеличить автономность с помощью дополнительного аккумулятора.
