Intel Core I7 Processor Family
This laptop has an Intel Core i7-4xxx processor family, which is typical of many laptops of a similar age and type to it.
Has a Front Camera
The Zbook 17 has a front camera, as do most of the other portable PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the Zbook 17.
We compared all the other portable PCs which also have a front camera to this portable PC and we think the HP Zbook 17 G2[plb_2966324_price], the Alienware 17[plb_2823242_price], or the Toshiba Qosmio X70-B[plb_2553370_price] is also worth considering.
1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The Zbook 17 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most laptops of this age and type. Most comparable spec portable PCs that have been around for around the same time as it support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. This portable PC also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. Across all laptops of a comparable age and type to the Zbook 17 the worst memory clock speeds supported by processor is 133MHz and the best is 1,866MHz.
Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory
Across all the notebook PCs of this age and spec the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 32GB. With a maximum internal memory of 32 gigabytes, the Zbook 17 has a fairly big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other many processor core portable PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the Zbook 17.
4x SO-DIMM Memory Slot
The biggest memory slots of the Zbook 17 is 4x SO-DIMM. That's over two times the memory slots of the most frequently found memory slot of 2x SO-DIMM.
This notebook PC's memory slots (4x SO-DIMM) is actually the best memory slots across all many processor core portable PCs that were released more than a year ago.
A 1x SO-DIMM memory slot is the worst memory slots across comparable types of notebook PC.
Very Fast Hard Drive Speed
The hard drive speeds of laptops of this type and age range from 5,400 RPM to 7,200 RPM, and the average hard drive speed is 5,800 RPM. The HP Zbook 17 has a very fast hard drive speed (7,200 revolutions per minute) compared to most of the other many processor core portable PCs that have been around for a similar time to the Zbook 17.
802.11n WiFi Standard
This portable PC has an 802.11a|802.11b|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is the most frequently found WiFi standard on laptops of a similar type and age to it.

GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This laptop has a GDDR5 discrete graphics memory type, which is the most frequently found discrete graphics memory type on portable PCs of this age and type.
10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This portable PC Ethernet LAN data rate, which is the most frequently found Ethernet LAN data rate on notebook PCs of a comparable age and spec to it.
4 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
This laptop has an HDD storage medium, which is the most commonly found storage medium on notebook PCs of this spec and age. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative portable PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available including the DELL Precision M4800[plb_2840253_price] which is cheaper.
Notebook PCs with a better storage medium that might also be worth looking at include the DELL XPS 15[plb_2742248_price] (SSD and higher rated); or the HP Omen[plb_2663843_price] (SSD and cheaper).
Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen
Most notebook PCs that have been around for more than a year do not have a touch sensitive screen. The Zbook 17 is no exception to this as it too does not have a touch sensitive screen.
We compared this laptop to all the other notebook PCs with a touch sensitive screen and we think the DELL XPS 15[plb_2742248_price]; or the HP Omen[plb_2663843_price] are also worth considering.
Across all the many processor core portable PCs that were launched more than a year ago the weights range from 980g to 4.2kg, and the average weight is 2.5kg. At 3.4 kilograms, the Zbook 17 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other portable PCs of this spec and age.
If you don't mind having a heavier weight then you might want to look at the DELL Precision M4800[plb_2840253_price] (2.9kg and cheaper).
At 34 millimeters, the HP Zbook 17 is fairly thick compared to most of the other portable PCs that were launched around the same time as the Zbook 17. The thinnest portable PC that has been on the market for more than a year is 15mm thick, the thickest is 48mm, and the average height is 27mm.
