18 Reasons For

HP Has Good Portable PC Reviews

Many processor core portable PCs produced by HP have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all notebook PCs (not just many processor core portable PCs) and found that HP also has good reviews across its entire range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This portable PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on notebook PCs of a comparable age and spec to it.

Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The HP ZBook 17 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (1,300 megahertz) compared to most of the other many processor core portable PCs that have been around for around the same time as the ZBook 17. The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of many processor core portable PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the ZBook 17 range from 750MHz to 1,400MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,200MHz.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

The highest display resolution of the HP ZBook 17 is 1920 x 1080 pixels. That's 98% more display resolution than a 1366 x 768 pixels notebook PC, which is the most common display resolution.

This laptop's display resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) is in fact the best display resolution amongst all notebook PCs of a comparable type and age to the ZBook 17.

A 1366 x 768 pixels display resolution is the worst display resolution amongst similar types of laptop.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 17.3" portable PCs currently available including the HP ZBook 17, or the Alienware 17 (£1,500.97) which is cheaper.

Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed

The slowest processor clock speed of many processor core portable PCs that are a comparable age to the ZBook 17 is 1GHz, the fastest is 3GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.2GHz. With a processor clock speed of 2.7 gigahertz, the ZBook 17 has one of the faster processor clock speeds amongst many processor core portable PCs of this age.

We compared all the other 2.7GHz processor clock speed notebook PCs to this laptop and we think the ZBook 15, and the ZBook 17 both from HP which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this notebook PC processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the HP ZBook 15 (2.8GHz) which is also cheaper.
