The 2012 CRN Tech Innovator And Enterprise App Awards

Hewlett-Packard Z1

The winner in the PC workstation category identified a shift toward smaller workspaces, meeting a need that customers themselves hadn't yet recognized. The result was the world's first 27-inch all-in-one workstation. This innovative unit's display tilts down into a horizontal position and flips open like the hood of a car for servicing. Every piece and part was engineered specifically for this unit, right down to the hydraulic hinges that hold the cover open. The chassis enables technicians to simply swap out parts and make upgrades easily, quickly and without tools. The unit we're referring to is the Z1 from Hewlett-Packard. Accepting for HP was Jeff Wood, vice president of worldwide product management.
