HP Z2 Mini G3

A pint-sized powerhouse that doesn't cost the Earth

Great performer for such a small machine ; Relatively affordable price ; Ability to drive four 4K monitors

Only DisplayPort connectors available

A well-thought-out, gorgeous, pint-sized workstation computer that can (and will) make your 8K dreams come true without breaking the bank.

Great PC! 2GB/sec read speeds when ordered with the PCIe SSD. Looks cool like it came out of Star Trek. Only thing it's missing is a USB-C port.

Great quiet machine


The Z2 Mini G3 has handled all my tasks with ease. It has an awesome size that makes it look great. It is pretty heavy though, but that just goes to show you all the power it has.

I think this is a tight package for CAD Work


Great package for industrial designers. My biggest problem with PCs is that they are bulky and noisy, this unit however is great. it's fast and supports SW with quadro graphics. good work HP!
