HP Unveils Workstation Ultrabook; Revs Z-Series Towers


Z-Series Displays

Also, HP today unveiled two new Z-Series displays, adding 27- and 30-inch models to the rebranded line it launched in July. The two new displays employ IPS-gen 2 LCD panels, which reportedly consume less power than those of the prior generation without effecting viewing angle or color accuracy. The Z27i offers a maximum native resolution of 2,560-x-1,440 (at 60Hz) and provides 99 percent coverage of the sRGB color space, according to the company. The Z30i delivers 2,560-x-1,600 (at 60Hz) with 100 percent coverage of sRGB and Adobe color spaces. Both panels are attached to their included tilt-swivel bases with a quick-release VESA mount, enabling the panel to be quickly reconfigured or remounted when necessary. An optional kit permits mounting of an HP thin client or small form-factor workstation to the stand. Both displays accept DisplayPort 1.2, VGA, DVI and HDMI inputs, and both include a four-port USB 3.0 hub and outputs for HP's Speaker Bar. Available now, the Z30i lists for $1,329. The Z27i will begin shipping in October for $729 list.
