You may have heard me discussing the HP Z1 workstation recently. That’s because I’ve had the pleasure of using one for several weeks now, thanks to the kind folks at HP. The Z1, the first of it’s kind, all-in-one workstation from HP is a gorgeous machine, conveniently packaged in one solid bundle, and offers the power and flexibility demanded by any technology professional. Now don’t get me wrong, anyone could use and love the Z1, however, at a starting price in the low $2,000 range, the device can be heavily customized to cost well over $5,000 and as a result is ideally targeted at the power user or as an enterprise solution. Note, a number of other lower end “all in one” solutions may be found from the likes of Samsung, Toshiba, Lenovo, and others, however, the devices from those makers would be classified in a category that is far inferior to the enterprise class HP Z1. Of interest, the Z1 line of workstations are considered an “entry” level to the HP Commercial workstation family and a “step down” from the traditional tower workstations.
