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.

This HP Z1 is the first all-in-one system I've had the pleasure of reviewing. It's an extremely well-engineered system, but it is pretty heavy. The 27-inch display is quite nice. It's a 2560x1440 IPS panel that provides roughly 75 percent...

There’s a lot to like about an all-in-one workstation. AIOs save space and reduce clutter in your work area. They’re also easier to move around – just pick it up and you’re ready to go. But maintaining and upgrading an AIO can be difficult,...

While consumers know HP for its substantial market share in the world of desktops and notebooks, perhaps more important to HP's bottom line is the company's server and workstation business. While we all know what servers do there might be some...

While the Z1 sits within HP’s Z-series of workstations aimed at CG, VFX and video pros, this all-in-one is more for designers, photographers and illustrators – albeit ones with big budgets. HP has taken Apple’s iMac and upgraded many...

This computer is a fabulous choice for an office in need of massive displays and Windows 7 (or Windows 8 later this year). You’ve got a perfectly solid build, HP has made the entire structure out of high-end components, and you’ll be able to...

First All-In-One Workstation No oops about it, HP has done it again with the introduction of the Z1 Workstation. The engineering behind the first all-in-one workstation-class computer is nothing short of amazing. Designed specifically for...

The Z1 workstation really brings HP's engineering skill to the fore. However, the large markup on workstation parts means that a significantly cheaper machine will outperform it, and high-end graphics cards are left out in the...

So who is the Z1 really targeted to? The simple answer is anyone who’s looking to buy a workstation who needs some serious performance but doesn’t necessarily have the space for a full-fledged tower unit. The Z1 is certainly a no-brainer for...

Time for a spot of word association. We say workstation, you think big, black monolith. Right? That certainly used to be the drill for powerful systems that were aimed at 'professional content creators', as the ghastly industry jargon goes. Well,...

The HP Z1 Workstation isn't going to take pride of place in your living room, but if you're after a big-screen all-in-one PC with enough power to chew through any graphics tasks you can throw at it, the Z1 is definitely worth a...

HP should be commended for putting together the most impressive All-in-One we've ever seen. Those after pure power would still be better served by a traditional workstation, though, and the price means it's likely to be reserved for the...

The HP Z1 workstation is a special computer. HP must be of the same opinion, because it's not a computer that's directly aimed at existing users of HP workstations. HP is aiming at a new market of compact yet powerful computers that you can also...

If you are a professional designer that absolutely needs the Quadro GPU but can also spare the space for a tower, then a traditional workstation will provide more power and a desktop class GPU for considerably less money. As far as the user...
