HP Z1 Workstation Review


This summer HP has brought on a beast of a business machine in the Z1 all-in-one Workstation, complete with an upgradable set of innards and all-in-one style. The display is a massive LED-backlit 27-inch IPS panel at 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution and...

HP Z1 Workstation Review: Pretty, Powerful, and Pricey, but Not Perfect


The new HP Z1 Workstation is the most attractive, most powerful, and most expensive all-in-one PC I've ever seen. And that isn't an exaggeration: This all-in-one workstation, the first of its kind, has a gorgeous 27-inch edge-to-edge glass screen,...

Very powerful ; Bright and beautiful screen

Inconvenient port placement ; No touchscreen option

The expensive Z1 all-in-one has both brains and beauty, but it also has some issues that are impossible to ignore.

HP Z1 Workstation: High-End Hardware In An All-In-One


A while back, HP sent over its first-gen Z1 all-in-one workstation. We've been told it's no longer available, replaced by a second-gen Z1. However, this is still the model that started it all for HP, built around a high-end 2560x1440 DreamColor display.

HP Z1 Workstation


No oops about it, HP has done it again with the introduction of the Z1 Workstation. The engineering behind the first all-in-one workstation-class computer is nothing short of amazing. Designed specifically for professionals in the graphics,...

High performance; easy to upgrade

No touchscreen capability; poor placement of back ports

Expect power and performance in a sleek, sexy, and easily accessible chassis that will make all the diehard Apple fans sit up and take notice. The Z1 Workstation is available starting at $1,899 with fully customizable options. (For benchmark results,...

HP Z1 Workstation Review


Power without the tower" indeed.

Easy to access internal components, space-saving, great screen quality, quiet performance, GPU acceleration is a big bonus

Screen can be quite glossy at times, dual HDDs need to be 2.5

HP prides itself on what they call the “Z-DNA”, which defines their workstation lineup. One aspect of this is the fact that all of HP’s workstations can be fully serviced without the need to remove a single screw. This is especially true of the Z1,...

HP Z1 Workstation


The HP Z1 merges two worlds: the all-in-one desktop and the professional workstation. Typically, an all-in-one is a space-saving and sleek consumer PC, while a workstation is a professional-grade system in a traditional tower. With the HP Z1, business...

Sleek design ; Professional-grade components ; Easy-to-access internals for an all-in-one ; Quiet operation

Rear ports are difficult to reach

Whether you view it as a remarkably sleek and slim workstation or an insanely powerful and reliable all-in-one PC, the HP Z1 is unique: it's the first 27-inch all-in-one workstation.

Highly Recommended

First Look Review: Distinctive all-in-one system has it all — and it all fits inside a 27" display.

The HP Z1 is a powerful workstation, which comes at a price. Our review unit, which can only be described as fully loaded, was priced at $5,673 (including the stunning 27" display). Visit HP's web site to price a custom configuration to your exact...

Can HP's awesomely engineered all-in-one replace the traditional tower?

Excellent build quality ; Easily upgraded ; Quality IPS screen

Lack of performance ; No SSD as standard ; Price

HP Z1 Workstation review


Desktop PC systems are rapidly becoming old hat, even when it comes to powerful systems for design, production and video editing work. A large part of the credit for that goes to Apple - its iMac all-in-one computers proved that a compact design...

Whether you're kitting out a design department or creating your own digital artist's studio, this powerful all-in-one will meet your every need
