Thin at 0.71″ and weighing 4.6 lb, the 15.6″ ZBook Studio G4 Mobile Workstation from HP has been built for creative visionaries who require the power of a desktop workstation in a sleek and light mobile design. It is powered by a 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7-7700HQ Quad-Core processor which allows you to run multiple applications simultaneously. If you need more power, the system can be overclocked to 3.8 GHz using Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. The 8GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 RAM helps to ensure smooth multitasking and also allows the computer to quickly access frequently-used files and programs.
The 15.6″ Dreamcolor display features an Ultra HD 3840 x 2160 screen resolution that is equipped with IPS technology, an anti-glare finish, LED-backlighting, an ultra-wide viewing angle (UWVA), a 16:9 aspect ratio, a contrast ratio of 1000:1, a refresh rate of 60 Hz, a brightness of 270 cd/m2, 282 ppi, and viewing angles of 85°. The dedicated NVIDIA Quadro M200 graphics card has 4GB of discrete GDDR5 RAM and delivers a sharp, clear picture. You’ll also be able to output video to an external display at resolutions up to 5120 x 2880 using the system’s HDMI and dual Thunderbolt 3 ports, the latter of which supports DisplayPort 1.2.
For long-term storage of your files, this ZBook Studio G4 is equipped with a 256GB Z Turbo Drive G2 MLC NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 SSD, which offers quick access to your data While the SSD may not have the larger storage capacity of a traditional spinning hard drive, it contains no moving parts which helps it to be more resistant against bumps, drops, and other kinds of damage. SSDs also receive less wear and tear than traditional hard drives, as they don’t have any read and write heads. Additionally, as this SSD connects via PCIe as compared to SATA, it is able to operate with even greater data transfer speeds. It provides sequential reads up to 2260 MB/s and sequential writes up to 1600 MB/s.
If you want to add external storage, optical drives, memory card readers, and more, the ZBook Studio G4 offers two 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 ports that also support 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Type-C. There are also two 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports and one USB 3.0 Type-A charging port. Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11ac Wi-Fi are also built-in for wired and wireless networking, and Bluetooth 4.2 technology will also allow you to connect additional compatible peripherals. So that content from memory cards may be accessed, a built-in SD/SDHC/SDXC card reader supports UHS-II flash media and lets users download content from their digital camera. Other integrated features include a 720p webcam, dual-array microphones, and stereo speakers with Bang & Olufsen HD audio.
