What is the good for your business

images-7HP’s ZBook Studio G3 is a powerful workstation you can actually take with you. That’s because the system is pretty thin and light for a PC with such beefed-up hardware. Plus, the ZBook — reviewed at $2,651 and starting at $1,399 — can handle the most graphically demanding workloads, and features a sleek, sturdy design and solid security credentials.

The ZBook Studio G3 is surprisingly thin and light for a Windows workstation, weighing just 4.6 lbs. and measuring 0.71 inches thick. That puts it on a par with Dell’s Precision 5510 workstation (14.06 x 9.27 x 0.66 inches and 4.6 lbs.), but it’s more portable than larger Windows workstations such as Lenovo’s 17.3-inch ThinkPad P70 (7.6 lbs. and 1.2 inches thick). That’s a perk for commuters who need to carry their laptop between home and the office.

And anyone who needs to lug around their laptop will appreciate the ZBook Studio G3’s tough design. The notebook comes with MIL-Spec 810G durability credentials, which means it was tested to withstand vibrations, shocks, extreme temperatures and even short drops. Plus, a textured diamond pattern on the system’s underside will help you keep a good grip when you’re toting the ZBook around.

Just about every port a worker could want is available here. The notebook’s left edge includes two USB 3.0 ports and an Ethernet port. The right edge, meanwhile, adds two Thunderbolt ports, an HDMI port and a third USB 3.0 port.
