The HP ZBook has a quite fast processor clock speed (2.6 gigahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core laptops that were released more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 2.6GHz processor clock speed portable PCs currently available including the Lenovo L540, or the Toshiba Tecra A50 which is cheaper.

If this portable PC processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo L540 (2.8GHz), or the HP 8470p (2.9GHz) which is also cheaper.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 500GB total storage capacity laptops currently available including cheaper laptops such as the HP 8470p, or the Toshiba Tecra A50.

If this medium processor core notebook PC total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the XPS 13 (512GB and higher rated), or the Inspiron 17R (1TB and higher rated) both from DELL or the Toshiba Satellite E45-B (750GB and cheaper).
