HP ZBook 14 Review: Mobile Workstation Meets Ultrabook
20 June 2014
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...
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.
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...
Summary: If you're in the market for a low-cost business notebook, we suggest checking out the Lenovo T440s or Acer TravelMate P645. If you're interested in a workstation, you should also consider Dell's 15-inch Precision M3800.
Conclusion: Power, battery life, a gobsmackingly nice screen, and a good price all combine to earn the HP ZBook 14 our latest Editors' Choice for mobile workstations.
Pros: Portable workstation power. Under four pounds. Easy access to swappable components. Brilliant anti-glare screen. Has biometrics and smartcard security. Dual pointing devices. Removable/swappable battery.

Summary: The first workstation ultrabook keeps it simple
Pros: Fun, fast fingerprint sensor, Excellent inputs, Discrete GPU comes standard, Easy access to insides, The standard fingerprint sensor on the ZBook 14 makes me want to see such tech on every laptop from here on out. Never before have I seen a fingerprint sensor act so quickly and reliably as HP's, ...
Cons: Inconsistent, drab design, FHD screen, backlighting optional, Poor value at high end, Aside from the fingerprint sensor and Easy Access Door, few of these marquee features actually come standard, namely the beefy processor, backlit keyboard and screen resolution. All of these arguably necessary n...
