HP has announced new additions to the ZBook series notebooks; including what it deems to be the thinnest and lightest mobile workstation on the market. The new ZBook 14u G5 and 15u G5 are also set to feature integrated privacy screens; which really shows how series HP is about allowing people to work on the go.
Specific details about the hardware in the new ZBooks are rather light. We are told that they will feature 4K resolution displays and 8th generation Intel processors. The processors both i5 and i7 versions featuring Intel’s vPro technology as well. This is complemented by the additional of AMD Radeon Pro graphics. The also feature up to 2TB of storage backed by the HP Z Turbo Drive technology.
According to HP, this setup will provide professional users with enough power to run CAD applications. More importantly, it has been optimised to work with design programmes from Autodesk and Adobe.
Of course, the chassis of the new G5 ZBooks passed MIL-STD-810G testing; which certifies it for use in field conditions. It doesn’t guarantee that it will survive actual wartime conditions, but most HP customers really wouldn’t need that kind of military level durability.
The availability of the HP ZBook 14u G5 and 15u G5 will be announced at a later date, but both will have prices starting from RM6,000.
