LAS VEGAS — HP has unveiled the second generation of the world’s first all-in-one workstation with a 27-inch diagonal display, the HP Z1, now available with Windows 8 Touch and Intel Thunderbolt capabilities.
Ideal for knowledge workers and specialists in CAD, graphic arts and university education, the HP Z1G2 offers fast data transfer speeds for compute-intensive workloads, and new technologies like Thunderbolt offer the flexibility for high-performance external expandability.
The HP Z1 G2 is joined by three new all-in-one PCs ideal for use in small and midsize business (SMB) and enterprise environments, including the HP Slate Pro All in One, HP's first commercial Android all-in-one PC. The HP Slate Pro offers seamless integration with Android-based phones and tablets, along with access to efficient manageability tools, security enhancements and apps available through the Google Play app store.
HP is the only workstation vendor to offer Thunderbolt as an option across both desktop and mobile workstations. Thunderbolt enables cutting-edge creative work, and the addition of this technology to the HP Z1 G2 expands HP's leadership in innovation and demonstrates its commitment to the professional market.
The HP Z1 features Intel integrated HD Graphics, 4th Generation Intel Xeon and Core processors, ECC memory, and RAID storage options, providing users with more reliability and performance. Additionally, the HP Z1 features the latest NVIDIA Mobile Quadro GPUs for professional use and the best graphics performance for demanding applications. All HP Z Workstations are tested and certified for professional applications.
