HP ZBook 15u G3 Workstation Ultrabook Review

Lisa Gade reviews the HP ZBook 15u G3, HP’s latest generation 15.6” workstation Ultrabook. Not to be confused with the more powerful and expensive HP ZBook Studio or the standard issue ZBook 15, the 15u runs on Intel 6th generation Skylake dual core, 15 watt Core i5 and i7 Ultrabook CPUs. It has AMD FirePro W4190M 2BG DDR5 graphics tailored toward CAD work rather than gaming, and that GPU sits near the bottom of AMD’s line. The ZBook 15u with a Core i7 starts around $1,200, which is $800 cheaper than the ZBook 15 Studio slim and light workstation with quad core CPUs and more powerful graphics.

The laptop weighs 4.18 lbs. (2.16 kg) and is 19.9mm thick. It has a magnesium alloy reinforced casing that meets MIL Std 810G specs for water and dust resistance. It’s available with low end 1920 x 1080 full HD TN displays (touch and non-touch options available) or IPS 1080p and 4K displays. It has an ample array of ports including USB 3.0, USB-C 3.1 Gen 1, DisplayPort 1.2 with MST support, VGA, a sim card slot for 4G LTE, a Smart Card slot and Ethernet. The laptop has Bang & Olufsen stereo speakers, Intel 8260 WiFi 802.11ac with Bluetooth 4.2 and a backlit keyboard.
