11 Reasons For
We checked 4,416 owner and expert reviews for HP laptops and found that on average HP has good ratings compared to other brands. We also found that HP has good ratings specifically within its medium processor core laptops range.
Three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The ZBook 17 is a three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port portable PC. Most of the other laptops that have been on the market for around the same time as the ZBook 17 have between one and four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

With a screen size of 17.3 inches, the HP ZBook 17's screen size is one of the biggest amongst medium processor core laptops that have been available for a comparable time to the ZBook 17.
There are a number of other 17.3" portable PCs currently available which you might also want to consider including the Inspiron 17 ($989.00), or the Inspiron 17 5748 both from DELL which is cheaper; or the DELL Inspiron 17R which has better reviews.

The ZBook 17 has a full-size keyboard. Most of the other notebook PCs of a similar age and spec to the ZBook 17 also have a full-size keyboard.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other portable PCs with a full-size keyboard currently available including a cheaper notebook PC such as the DELL Latitude 14 E7440 or you might consider a better rated notebook PC such as the DELL XPS 13.
We think you might also be interested in other laptops which also have a full-size keyboard including the HP ProBook 440 ($698.00).

We compared this portable PC to all the other notebook PCs with a front camera and we think because of it's better review score, the DELL XPS 13 is also worth considering.
Alternative portable PCs which also have a front camera that you might also want to look at include the EliteBook 8470p, or the ProBook 440 ($698.00) both from HP.
