  1. There are many 27-inch all-in-one desktops available today, but none of them deliver workstation-level performance according to HP. The company will supposedly fill that void with its new Z1 Workstation,…

    Read the whole story
  2. i like the idea of using no tools to take all the parts out
  3. "The Z1 will kick off in April at $1,899 with a Core i3-2120, integrated HD 2000 graphics..."


    HAHAHAHAHAHAH *sigh* :/
    I guess HP thinks everyone is dumb and would overpay for crap?

    Since you are clearly not one of those "dumb" people, you must realize this is for enterprise customers with a Xeon CPU, ECC memory etc.. etc.. etc.. ?

    Only problem is, Xeon has a different socket to the i3. Meaning, it's really really expensive just for the base model.
  8. I gotta agree with the guy above, this system is WAY overpriced for the starting specs. Hell, the iMac starts at $1,699 with WAY better specs (i5, 4gb, 1tb). So what if its an "enterprise" solution, with the way companies are cutting budgets and consolidating, I don't see this product hitting the market in good position...and to get an "enterprise" class system, with a Xeon and more ram, how much is that gonna cost???

    No option for Windows Home, and Linux is an available option. Kind of tells me it's not meant for Grand-ma to check her email. I say, let corporate take the first batch of these computers. These look awesome. Once the cost to manufacture it drops the rest of us can get one at a better price for home use.

    Those Xeon and Quadro parts are less beefy than their cheaper consumer level counterparts at the same price point.

    You gotta spend a lot to get more from the workstation/server level stuff.

    It will get popularity in the market for easily exchanging its component although the price is high compare to other.
