What you need to know

  • HP has a trio of ZBooks releasing.
  • They are the ZBook Studio, ZBook Power, and ZBook Fury.
  • The machines' release dates and pricing structures have yet to be announced.

HP has a slate of ZBooks on the way, all packed with the latest hardware so that professionals and creatives can keep their mobile workstations up to date with the cutting edge of advancements in consumer tech.

The three models en route to consumers are the ZBook Studio, ZBook Power, and ZBook Fury. Windows Central is doing separate coverage for the ZBook Studio, but you can find the details on the Power and Fury right here.

The Fury will come in 15-inch and 17-inch variations for those who want a choice between big and bigger, while the Power will be set in stone at 15 inches. According to HP, the ZBook Power will start at an "unbelievably affordable" price, though what that unbelievable price actually is remains to be seen. The Fury touts no such guarantees of relative affordability, though it does advertise its desktop-caliber performance and extreme durability as selling points.

Here are the specs of the Fury and Power:

For news on pricing and availability, check back here periodically. HP mentions that pricing will be announced closer to the availability of the machines, with a June or July announcement being the current plan. So stay alert — the next two months will reveal all, hopefully.

HP also announced today the forthcoming ZBook Studio G8 - what it calls the most powerful laptop of its size. We have an early hands-on with that model, which is easily one of the best workstations we have tried.
