    P52 has a better keyboard but limited display options:
    • FHD matte 300nits 72% gamut
    • 4K glossy touch 400nits 100% gamut (+ 300g weight)

    HP Zbook 15 G5 has more display options. In particular you can get a 4K matte non touch.

    What display do you have in mind?

    Yes, I would prefer a matte 4k display. I don't do any graphics and don't care much about gamut and colors. I currently have a Thinkpad T540p and the keyboard is brilliant - is the HP much worse? None of my colleages has one, mostly Thinpads everywhere. And the battery life? P51 has in most tests 6-8 hours, zbook G4 varies from 3 to 10 hours.

    In my view, the keyboards of ThinkPads are simply the best. HP and Dell have mediocre keyboards. Anyway, if you want more battery life, you should choice the FHD display.

    Is there a huge difference in battery life compared to FullHD? I have currently 3K and I think it is great - that's why I would prefer 4K

    As for the P52, the difference in battery life between FHD and 4K will be very noticeable (min. 30%) because the 4K display has more pixels, is multi-touch and requires higher levels of brightness being glossy.

    In fact the 4K matte display of P51 was almost perfect...

    Yes, if there was a P52 with 4k matte panel, the decistion would be probably easier. Right now the ZBook 15 G5 2ZC64EA (Xeon, 32GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 4k matte panel) for approx. 2600EUR seems to me to be a better choice than P52 that has 8850H, 16GB RAM and glossy panel for the same price. Thanks!

    If you use the dreamcolor panel of HP, you'll not be able to use the integrated graphics if you have a dedicated one.

    Is it possible to "disable" via software the Dreamcolor feature and use the integrated gpu with Optimus?
