13 Reasons For

HP Has Good Portable PC Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all HP laptops and also specifically for HP medium processor core notebook PCs and found that in both cases HP had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This notebook PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

Notebook PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the ZBook 15 have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1.7GB and 16GB. The ZBook 15 has one of the bigger maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (16 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

Most laptops that were launched more than a year ago have between one and four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the ZBook 15 which has four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

The ZBook 15 has a maximum display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. That's 98% more display resolution than a 1366 x 768 pixels portable PC, which is the most frequently found display resolution.

This portable PC's display resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) is actually the best display resolution across all laptops of this age and spec.

The worst display resolution across comparable types of portable PC is 1024 x 768 pixels.

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The ZBook 15 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than the 133MHz processor memory clock speed supported by most notebook PCs of a comparable spec and age to it. In addition, this notebook PC supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. Medium processor core notebook PCs that were released more than a year ago processor memory clock speeds range from 133MHz to 1,866MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Internal Memory

Across all the medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for more than a year the internal memory range from 2GB to 16GB. The ZBook 15 has one of the bigger internal memory (8 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age.

If this medium processor core notebook PC internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to consider the T450s (£982.61) (12GB), or the ThinkPad T450 (12GB) both from Lenovo or the Fujitsu Lifebook U745 (£1,183.19) (12GB).

SSD Storage Medium

The ZBook 15 has an SSD storage medium which is better than most medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as it. Most laptops of a similar spec and age to it have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

This laptop's storage medium (SSD) is in fact the best storage medium across all medium processor core notebook PCs that came out around the same time as the ZBook 15.

The worst storage medium across comparable types of laptop is HDD.

If the storage medium of this medium processor core notebook PC is not good enough for you then you might also want to look at the Elitebook 820 G2 (£750.00) (SSD), or the EliteBook 820 G2 (£778.63) (SSD) both from HP.

6 Other reasons to consider the HP ZBook 15

Released Over a Year Ago

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 2.2 gigahertz, the HP ZBook 15 has a relatively typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other notebook PCs of a comparable type and age to the ZBook 15.

If this portable PC processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the DELL Latitude 12 E5250 (£454.80) (2.3GHz), or the Panasonic Toughbook CF-31 (£3,319.90) (2.3GHz).
