HP Z1 G2

 

The seriously expensive HP Z1 G2 is an all-in-one workstation desktop that puts massive computing power into a space-saving form factor.

Brilliant, huge touch screen. Expandable all-in-one chassis. Supports 802.11 a/b/g/n 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi. DisplayPort in/out. Solid-state drives (SSDs). Includes articulating hinge and VESA mounts.

Very expensive. Limited expansion.

The HP Z1 G2 has the power to do serious work in a graphics organization, architectural firm, or movie production house. Because of its lofty price tag, however, we see this as more of a chief executive's showpiece than a workstation user's dream...

HP Z1 G2 Workstation Review

 

With the Z1 G2 workstation, HP is hitting a lot of high notes. Highly customizable, intensely powerful, and endlessly useful, the newset HP workstation is a substantial upgrade versus last year's model. With everything tucked neatly behind the screen,...

Need a monster device that looks as good as it performs? Give the HP Z1 G2 a look. It’s not svelte, but it is powerful. The screen is lively and responsive, and we had quite a bit of fun gaming with it. Even with normal use, there was plenty of reason...

Gorgeous display with optional touch support, Easy tool-free access to components, Host of configuration options

Rear ports are still difficult to reach, Support arm is overly stiff, Huge stand mitigates some of the space-saving appeal of an all-in-one

These concerns, however, are universal to all-in-ones. If you determine that your job and workspace are a good fit for an all-in-one workstation, you'll be thoroughly satisfied with the HP Z1 G2 for its smart design and ample configuration options.

HP Z1 G2 Workstation Review and Ratings

 

Still the only one of its kind, the HP Z1 G2 is an all-in-one workstation that boasts smart design and ample configuration options, now including a touch screen and Thunderbolt 2.

Gorgeous display with optional touch support ; Easy tool-free access to components ; Host of configuration options

Rear ports are still difficult to reach ; Support arm is overly stiff ; Huge stand mitigates some of the space-saving appeal of an all-in-one

Workstations are, however, designed to shine with application interfaces such as OpenGL, and the Z1 G2 posted a very smooth 58 fps—well ahead of the Z230 SFF's 27 fps—in Cinebench's OpenGL animation. With the same Xeon E3-1245v3, the two HP models took...

HP Z1 G2 review

 

An upgrade for HP's powerful, user-upgradable all-in-one workstation.

Superb all-in-one CPU and GPU performance ; High-quality screen ; Upgradable internals ; Thunderbolt 2 ports

Extremely bulky ; Limited graphics and CPU upgrades ; Expensive

Although the first-generation HP Z1 felt like a proof of concept, the HP Z1 G2 is a truly powerful all-in-one. It may not be quite enough to make desktop 3D workstations obsolete, but it undoubtedly has a place in design studios.

HP Z1 G2 Workstation review

 

The HP Z1 G2 is the second version of HP's 27in all-in-one PC workstation. It's aimed at professional design studios, and comes with an nVdia Quadro graphics card, and an Intel Xeon processor with up to 32 GB of ECC system memory. See also: Apple iMac...

Although you can't upgrade every component inside it, the HP Z1 G2 is undoubtedly the most flexible all-in-one ever made, and for users of CAD and 3D design software, it's one of the most powerful. Although Apple's fully-loaded 27in iMac has faster...
