Professionals such as video editors, photographers, and digital artists normally rely on desktop-based workstations to complete their work. This setup means that most of the time, these people are just inside their offices or homes. Portable options are very limited and sometimes underpowered. Those who think that the second-generation Surface Studio is the answer should know that it’s a desktop model. That’s why one brand took matters into their own hands and created the HP ZBook Studio.

The brand packages some of the best next-generation specs into a compact notebook that can replace a full-size workstation. According to the manufacturer, its new machine is perfect for engineers, architects, and creators. HP makes a bold claim that the ZBook Studio’s 15.6-inch screen is currently the world’s brightest 4K UHD display at 600 nits. Additionally, the ambient light sensor and anti-glare tech automatically adjust the settings for maximum eye comfort. The built-in Sure View Gen 2 feature keeps on-screen information private so you can work even in crowded areas.

Processing power won’t be a hindrance thanks to the 8th-generation Intel Core i9 or Xeon chipsets with up to 64GB of RAM. Meanwhile, the NVIDIA Quadro P2000 GPU handles all your graphical needs, while the four Bang & Olufsen-tuned speakers pump out impressive audio. Its 6-cell 95.6 Wh battery lasts up to 16 hours and quickly recovers up to 50 percent in just 45 minutes of charging. The HP ZBook Studio is a great alternative for people who want laptops that perform above expectations.

Settle for the best
