For long term storage of your files, this ZBook 17 G3 is equipped with a 512GB Z Turbo Drive PCIe SSD that uses MLC-type NAND and an NVMe interface. 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 1.17 GB/s and sequential writes up to 930 MB/s.

If you want to add external storage, optical drives, memory card readers, and more, the ZBook 17 G3 offers two Thunderbolt 3 and four USB 3.0 ports, with one of the USB 3.0 ports doubling as a charging port. Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi are 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, stereo speakers with Bang & Olufsen HD audio, and a smart card reader.

The ZBook 17 G3 includes a 200W Slim Smart AC adapter that operates using 100-240 VAC at 47-63 Hz and an HP Long Life 6-cell / 96Wh Lithium-ion prismatic battery that lasts for up to 16.25 hours before recharging is required. Also included are Windows 7 Pro (64-bit) and Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) recovery media.
