Company reinvents workstation lineup with new HP ZBook Mobile Workstations, HP Z Displays, enhanced HP Z Workstations and Thunderbolt technology
HP announced the expansion of its Z portfolio of professional workstation and display products, including the world’s first workstation Ultrabook™ – the HP ZBook 14 – and the industry’s first line of workstations to offer Intel’s Thunderbolt technology for high-speed data transfer.
The new portfolio includes three new HP ZBook Mobile Workstations, processor and graphics enhancements to the award-winning line of HP Z Desktop Workstations, and two new HP Z Displays.
The first workstations to incorporate Thunderbolt, select HP Z Mobile and Desktop Workstations now can take advantage of high-speed data transmission between Z Workstations, displays and peripherals, providing the industry’s fastest, most versatile I/O connection.
Ideal for professionals in engineering, CAD, architecture, design, animation, film, education, government and healthcare, the HP Z portfolio of products have been engineered, tested and certified for professional applications.
