HP Z1 Workstation All-in-One
The HP Z1 Workstation is an All-in-one workstation that features a Core i3-2120, integrated HD 2000 graphics, 250GB of storage and a DVD writer. The system folds back and opens like a suitcase, revealing a tool-less chassis that lets you upgrade the processor, graphics card, memory, storage and seemingly any other component. Cooling is handled by an array of sensor-controlled fans so noise levels are typically around 20dB.
