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,...

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
