Designers and creators are redefining the world around us and demand the best technology to solve complex problems, which require more powerful, high-performance solutions previously only found in desktops workstations. The next generation HP ZBook 15 G6 and HP ZBook 17 G6 are the ultimate laptops for architects, designers, video editors, and VR creators who need desktop performance and power with the freedom to work wherever and whenever. With the choice of 9th Gen Intel® Core™ and Intel® Xeon® processors, and next-gen NVIDIA® Quadro RTX graphics, the new ZBooks power demanding workflows including 3D design and VR. Both ZBooks offer tool-less expandability to upgrade memory and storage in seconds.

For color-critical workflows it features the world’s first 17-inch mobile workstation display with 100 percent DCI-P3 21, giving access to even more colors.
