Thin at 1.0" and weighing 5.7 lb, the 15.6" ZBook G3 Mobile Workstation from HP is designed for mobile professionals who require a versatile system with powerful processing and graphics as well as simple scalability that can handle a wide variety of functions. The ZBook Studio G3 will help users stay productive, whether they are at home, at the office, or in the field, and it is powered by a 2.8 GHz Intel Xeon E3-1505M v5 Quad-Core processor that allows you to run multiple applications simultaneously. Using Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology, the processor is capable of boosting to 3.7 GHz if more power is needed. The 16GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 ECC RAM helps to ensure smooth multitasking and also allows the computer to quickly access frequently-used files and programs. The current memory configuration is 1 x 16GB 260-pin SO-DIMM memory module with three additional slots that are available for memory upgrades. With all four slots in use, this system can support 64GB, or 16GB per slot.

The 15.6" UWVA anti-glare display features a Full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolution. The Full HD display also features IPS technology, LED-backlighting, and a 16:9 aspect ratio. The dedicated NVIDIA Quadro M2000M 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.

For storage of your files, this ZBook G3 is equipped with a 512GB Z Turbo Drive PCIe SSD which offers quick access to your data. While the SSD may not have the larger storage capacity of a traditional spinning disk, 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 never come into contact with 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 2150 MB/s and sequential writes up to 1550 MB/s.

If you want to add external storage, optical drives, memory card readers, and more, the ZBook Studio G3 offers two USB Type-C connectors that support 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 and 10 Gb/s USB 3.1. 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.

The ZBook G3 includes a 150W Slim Smart AC adapter and is also able to operate using an HP Long Life 9-cell / 90Wh Lithium-ion polymer battery that can last for up to 15.75 hours before recharging is required. While the installed operating system is Windows 7 Professional (64-bit), a Windows 10 Professional (64-bit) license is included. Also included are Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) recovery media and Windows 10 Professional (64-bit) recovery media.

    15.6" ZBook 15 G3 Mobile Workstation is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Great B&H Photo Video service I tried to have one built in the USA by a company who advertises Made in USA. They kept telling me that they would get back to me about building one with a nVIDIA Quadro graphics card that I wanted for use with my SolidWorks CAD software. After three calls to them and still no results I called B&H Photo Video. A few days later this ZBook arrived. So far it is an excellent choice. The performance and monitor resolution exceed my expectations. It is just a computer. I need it for work and for that I am pleased. What really made this purchase outstanding was the incredible service I received from the staff at B&H. You guys have once again done it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Engineering Mobile Workstation I use this laptop as a workstation to run Solidworks and other intensive programs. It runs flawlessly so far, boots up extremely quickly, and is better than a similar desktop. Nor even a hiccup. The only downside that I see so far is that while running Solidworks, the battery life isn't as great as it could be. It's just a very demanding program from a processor, RAM, and GPU standpoint. The only thing that I'll likely do, but not soon, is add more RAM if needed or add some more hard drive space.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low drama system for heavy workloads I am purchased this system to do software development with multiple virtual machines running at the same time. Once I got it set up it is performing this task nicely. Initially the computer came with Windows 7 installed. This was unusable because it does not fully support all of the modern hardware on this system (such as USB 3.0, Thunderbolt, new GPU chipset). Doing a clean install of Windows 10 Pro from the included disk fixed all of the problems and the computer ran faster and smoother, in addition to supporting VMWare Workstation 12 properly. I can't recommend this laptop with the Windows 7 installed unless you have some special requirement for it. About the aesthetics and ergonomics of the system: The fan is loud with a slight tone (not just white noise). It is about the same loudness as older i7 laptops, but much louder than current lower powered laptops. Fan does not run constantly, and for office tasks the system is very quiet, only ramping up the fan for occasional heavy loads (CPU heavy programs or Windows Update running in background, for example). No heat build up like some similarly-powered gaming systems. The keyboard works well for fast typing, and the trackpad is decent. Not sure why it includes a track stick mouse control (those went out of fashion about 15 years ago). Black color is a bit Goth, compared to a MacBook Pro.
