HP Z1 Workstation, world’s first all-in-one workstation

The new HP Z1 Workstation is the world’s first all-in-one workstation. Similar to other HP Workstation models, the HP Z1 Workstation has parts that can be easily upgraded since the internal design of the PC features modular bays or parts that can be taken out and replaced easily without needing any tools.

It also features an unusual design as the display of the new HP Z1 Workstation snaps open like an attaché case for easy access of parts that need upgrading or changing.

“As the workstation industry leader, HP continues to invest in technology that allows our customers to push the limits of innovation,” said Albert Mateo, HP Philippines general manager for Personal Systems Group. “Our investments in R&D and technology have led to workstations that meet and exceed the needs of the world’s most demanding customers.”

The HP Z1 workstation is a real workhorse but features a small footprint that will benefit small offices of today. As a high performing PC, it is fitted with quad-core Intel Xeon processors, ECC memory, NVIDIA Quadro graphics, support for more than 1 billion colors and HP’s world-class reliability.

It is intended for use by computer-aided design, digital media and entertainment professionals as the HP Workstation Z1 offers a full range of workstation-class graphics cards and processors, and is thoroughly tested and certified to work with today’s leading industry applications.

As to applications, the HZ Z1 Workstation comes preloaded with HP Remote Graphics Software, which allows users to collaborate remotely on a project. Users can work remotely while still accessing the high-performance 2-D, 3-D, video and media-rich applications.
