HP Zbook 15 G2 review
Mighty processing power and a huge price – is this workstation worth almost £3,000?
Different screens options cut the price and resolution, and memory and storage changes can also save money. Elsewhere, smaller batteries, different care packs and varying accessories are available and it means that this machine can be far cheaper or even more expensive.
The HP succeeds in several key departments: fantastic application power and solid graphical ability mean it'll scythe through virtually all work applications, it's got plenty of ports, and good interior access. The keyboard and trackpad, too, are decent.
The screen is bettered elsewhere, though, and Apple's Macbook has a better keyboard and superior battery life. Rivals are also cheaper in most instances.
This machine is only worthwhile, then, if you need its power levels and office-friendly features. If not, then consumer-focused systems offer better value.
It’s got great power, decent ergonomics and versatile design, but the HP loses out to its rival thanks to a high price, middling screen quality and its sheer size.
