The HP ZBook 15 F2P55UT 15.6" Mobile Workstation is designed to come as close as possible to giving you the desktop workstation experience in a portable computer. It features a 2.4 GHz Intel Core i7 quad-core processor, 16GB RAM including the RAM upgrade installed as part of the turnkey installation, a 500GB, 7200rpm hard drive, and a 15.6" LED-backlit display. Most notably, the computer features an Nvidia Quadro K610M mobile graphics card with 1GB GDDR5 RAM. Having a dedicated graphics card is extremely beneficial for use with many video editing applications, including Premiere Pro, because it allows computationally-intensive tasks, such as transcoding video, to be offloaded onto the GPU for faster performance and a more efficient workflow.
The Adobe Creative Cloud subscription - equivalent to Master Collection in CS6 - grants you access to all major Adobe DCC (digital content creation) applications for one year. These include Premier Pro for video editing, After Effects for visual effects and motion graphics, Speed Grade for video Color Correction, Photoshop for photo manipulation, Illustrator and InDesign for graphic design, Lightroom for photo color correction, Dreamweaver for web design, and more. Many of these applications support Nvidia CUDA architecture, exposing them to GPU-acceleration thanks to the extra processing power locked up in the K610 graphics card the laptop features.
For media storage, the turnkey includes a 1TB, 7200rpm external hard drive with a USB 3.0 interface. It is always recommended to store video and other media on a different hard drive than the one Windows is installed on, and having an external drive simplifies transporting your data from one system to the next.
The software and RAM upgrade come installed as part of the turnkey installation and the software is tested to ensure that it is working correctly. This installation is backed by 1-year of tech support from B&H. For more information on the individual items in this turnkey please follow the links below.
