    When is the next update for the 17" ZBook going to be?
    Are the gen 8 CPUs worth the wait?

    They were announced this morning: https://press.ext.hp.com/us/en/press-releases/2018/hps-new-high-performance-workstations.html

    It looks like a pretty big visual redesign. All models look like the Zbook x2 tablet now.

    Notable changes on the 17 G5:
    • It has an optical drive again
    • The 1600x900 display is IPS now
    • The Dreamcolor UHD panel is now 10-bit (8+2 according to specs), and a bit brighter I think
    • Touchscreen option is now 4k instead FHD
    • Refreshed Pascal Quadros, including P1000/P2000 to replace M1200/M2200 on the low end (these aren't on nVidia's site yet so not sure on specs), and P4200/P5200 Max-Q on the high end
    • Tool less access panel is back again (like Zbook 17 G1/G2)
    • Mini-displayport added for display out (one less dongle)
    • Optical drive bay can take a M.2 storage module which supports up to 10TB
    • Improved webcam?

    The G4 has an access panel. It was only the G3 that didn't.

    Performance wise, I expect the Quadro P1000 to be a bit lower than a GTX 1050 (due to lower clocks, most likely). I imagine it will be the low end of the mid-tier Quadros

    Its an ugly silver laptop and not very professional looking. It has the same dreamcolor panel but with a built in color calibrator? Maybe the same dreamcolor or with the thinkpad idea. 4 nvme slots f9r the 10TB. It has a strange new image sensor trackpad. Ive no idea what that is. 6 core intel with optane memory? They brought back the blueray drive also. 4k for gorilla glass corner to corner with ambient light at 4k. NFC. Lion polymer battery now.720 camera with IR and windows hello.quadro p5200 16gb

    HP has really disappointed me in recent years, its like they are going back to their pre-compaq days.
    For that price they could at least include new standards.

    Hate to say this but will propably jump ship with the way HP is going.

    I`ve repeatedly wrote to hp and report them that TB3 does not support the Displayport 1.4 and asked them to make a separate output mini-displayport 1.4 in ZBOOK, in the hp sit deaf and uncomprehending persons
