A sneak preview of the world’s first 27″ screen all-in-one workstation
Do you find that traditional PCs are impractical in a compacted office environment, but you’re not prepared to switch to a smaller machine or laptop? If you answered ‘yes’, the chances are you’ll be anticipating the upcoming release from HP of their Z1, the world’s first all-in-one workstation with a 27” display.
The Z1 grew out of HP’s observation of the ever-decreasing desk size of the average employee – while offices get bigger so too does the number of employees, and the old days of a separate monitor and computer are becoming less practical. With its latest workstation, the Z1, HP has created its most efficient and sleek-looking workstation yet.
Here’s a run-down of the major selling points of the HP Z1:
- It’s easy to upgrade individual components – simply open the hood and switch out the pieces that need upgrading. The shock-absorbing close mechanism keeps the components safe from accidental rough handling.
- It’s quieter than many computers – heat sensors inside the machine detect when the cooling fans are needed to minimise noise disruption.
- It’s high performance – with quad-core Intel Xeon processors and ECC memory, and a NVIDIA Quadro graphics card, it’s the perfect machine for creative projects, as well as boasting a 27” LED backlit screen with a 178 degree viewing angle.
- It’s got great connectivity options and built-in features, including a USB 3.0 and media card reader, a customisable optical drive, and a high definition webcam with a front microphone array.
