HP puts new Z1 workstation in all-in-one chassis

HP says the Z1 is the industry's first all-in-one workstation

Hewlett-Packard has released the industry's first all-in-one workstation, the Z1, which the company said Tuesday is the most compact workstation available yet.

The Z1 comes with workstation hardware including server-class processors, a graphics card and power supply buried in a single 27-inch screen. Customers were asking for more desk space, so the company designed the workstation into an all-in-one without compromising performance, said Jim Zafarana, general manager of HP's workstation business.

The workstation, priced from US$1,899, was announced at the HP Global Partner conference being held in Las Vegas this week.

The company compared the Z1 to the Z800 flagship product, which is the company's most powerful workstation in a tower. The company has fit components such as the processor, cooling equipment, memory and other components used by other HP workstations into the all-in-one design.

"We deliver the power without the tower," Zafarana said. "This is professional level of workstation performance, through and through."

Many all-in-one PCs today lack components, and some all-in-ones use low-power Intel Atom or AMD C- or E-series processors because a fan can't fit into the available space.

The Z1 comes with Intel's server-class Xeon CPUs, Nvidia's Quadro graphics card and a 400-watt power supply. It has space for up to two hard drives or solid-state drives and a bay for a Blu-ray optical drive.

A user can also easily service components inside the chassis, which could otherwise be intimidating with the components inside a screen. The design allows a user to remove the screen and replace components.

The Z1 also has a webcam, multiple display inputs and USB 3.0 ports.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
