At Adobe MAX, HP is showcasing the world’s most powerful detachable PC designed to solve the performance and mobility needs of artists, designers and digital imaging professionals who need to push Adobe Creative Cloud and other professional applications to the limit.
The performance of the HP ZBook x2, the world’s first detachable workstation,increases productivity and allows digital creators and storytellers the freedom to work when and where inspiration strikes.
HP’s reinvention of detachable PCs began earlier this year with the introduction of the HP Spectre x2 and the HP Elite x2.
The HP ZBook x2 allows designers to effortlessly create with quad-core Intel Core processors, twice the memory of any other detachable PCand NVIDIA Quadro Graphics that deliver 73 percent higher graphics performance compared to the Surface Pro. A quiet, dual-fan active cooling system is designed to dissipate heat from the powerful graphics card and processor. HP also developed customizable, application-aware HP Quick Keys, to provide artists with 18 time-saving shortcuts.
Today, many creative professionals use multiple devices such as a MacBook Pro plus an iPad to accomplish the same tasks that can be done on the HP ZBook x2. Knowing that ultimate mobility is important, HP created a single device that delivers the same performance capabilities from inking to docked mode.
HP’s most versatile detachable to date, the HP ZBook x2 operates in four modes: laptop, detached, docked and tablet.
Using HP’s most natural pen with the HP ZBook x2, users can create without interruption as the pen never needs to be charged. The battery-less, HP-designed pen based on Wacom EMR technology, responds instantly to every nuance of the artist’s hand for natural motion. The HP ZBook x2 offers 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity with multi-directional tilt capabilities and includes a dedicated eraser.
The HP ZBook x2 features a fully-machined, aluminum and die-cast magnesium body starting at just 3.64 poundsand 14.6 mm thin when in tablet mode, and 4.78 pounds
and 20.3 mm in laptop mode. The HP ZBook x2 has a 14-inch diagonal, 4K multi-touch display with an optional 10-bit, one-billion color
HP DreamColor display calibrated to 100 percent of Adobe RGB.
HP ZBook x2 is scheduled for availability in December starting at $1,749.
