HP ZBook 15u G3 Workstation Review


Affordable, portable, professional… The HP ZBook 15u G3 brings us a thin-and-light mobile workstation with capable specs, all within the realm of affordability. But is it a workstation, or is it an Ultrabook… or is it a little bit of both?

practical yet attractive design, lightweight, excellent input devices, good port selection given its size, dual storage drive configurations are possible, strong I/O performance from the NVMe SSD, full performance is possible while running unplugged,...

maintenance could be easier, weak display contrast and color accuracy, poor TN viewing angles, PWM at all brightness levels below 100%, cannot compete in terms of CPU/GPU performance with some other workstations, including the Dell Precision M5510,...

Just around a year ago, the larger HP ZBook 15 G2 received an extremely high score of 89%, owing to first-rate build quality, maintenance and upgrade options, input devices, display quality, and performance in every category. A year later, the roughly...

HP ZBook 15u G3


What if you crossed a robustly built mobile workstation with an Ultrabook? HP's answer is the ZBook 15u G3, a 15.6" Ultrabook workstation that's relatively thin and light. The 4.2 lb. laptop has the rugged build and ample selection of ports we've come...

Durable build, thin and light for a mobile workstation, plenty of ports

Internals aren't mobile workstation caliber-- more like Ultrabook internals in a bigger, sturdier body

The HP ZBook 15u is like a Hummer H3 with a Mazda Miata drivetrain--it's hard to say exactly where it fits other than as an upsell for the more powerful ZBook Studio and ZBook 15 models, or as a corporate purchase for those whose jobs don't entail...

HP ZBook 15u 4G


The ZBook 15u 4G is a solid workhorse, but at R20k this notebook could benefit from a few more bells and whistles.

Large and bright display; Solidly specced components

Weighty design; A touch expensive

All in all though, for the price you're getting a reliable piece of technology. Armed with a spacious and vivid display, as well as a keyboard that lends itself to long hours of typing, the ZBook 15u is the type of workhorse notebook that should make...

HP Zbook 15u G3 review


This oddball workstation laptop feels halfhearted

Fast; Comfortable keyboard; Lengthy battery life for a 15in laptop

Disappointing colour accuracy; Odd and disjointed selection of ports and slots; Software issues

One too many compromises mean this promising laptop can’t quite justify its high price

Very Happy with ZBook 15u G4


Custom ordered the notebook with the features I needed. The features that are a requirement for me are i7, Nvidia graphics, 1T HD, Win10 Pro 64, and support of the UltraSlim Docking Station. The notebook thin design, light weight, and USB Type-C are a...

Great laptop


This is a great laptop. I got the slim dock with it as well and have it connect to a 32" monitor. I use this as my workstation at home and mobile computer on the go. Fast boot up with SSD.

Better than Dell XPS15


I've used a Dell XPS15 for a couple years. This ZBook is configured pretty much the same, but feels much more solidly built and was 2/3 as expensive. The main feature that sold me on it was the Turbo Drive G2 OPAL2 Self Encrypted (SED) TLC SSD, since...

overall excellent style and performance


the only feature not included that would make this zbook any better would be - touch screen. I miss it. I have ZBook14 for work and these two are virtually the same in style and performance. The keyboard is probably the best I've ever used in my 38...
