A 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed is actually the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across all portable PCs of a comparable age and spec to the ZBook 17.
Across comparable types of notebook PC the worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor is 133MHz.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP ZBook 17 has a better storage medium than most portable PCs that were launched around the same time as it. This notebook PC has an SSD storage medium, whereas most notebook PCs that were released more than two years ago 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.
An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage medium across all notebook PCs of a comparable spec and age to the ZBook 17.
Across comparable types of laptop the worst storage medium is HDD.
Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory
With a maximum internal memory of 32 gigabytes, the ZBook 17 has a quite big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other many processor core laptops that have been available for more than two years. The smallest maximum internal memory of many processor core laptops that are a similar age to the ZBook 17 is 2GB, the biggest is 32GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 19GB.
L3 Processor Cache
This notebook PC has a L3 processor cache, which is typical of many many processor core laptops that were released more than two years ago.
