    I picked up one of these from an IT factory outlet as a temp 'lighter' replacement for my ageing 8740W.

    For giggles, i put it in my 8740W's docking station.

    and.... it works flawlessly. The dock powers fine, it engages the Bluray drive i have in the optical doc, the USB ports all work, as do the older ports Parallel etc (this is an old 'advanced' docking station) the Quadro K1100 even recognises the DP+ ports and can send audio (7.1 i might add!) to my A/V receiver via an HDMI adapter.

    I couldn't believe it either.

    The dock sometimes forgets it's there if you plug into it with the laptop being on. it seems the more modern quadro needs to be cold booted in the doc for it to work properly.

    but yea, quite shocked my 6 year old docking station works with this 2014 machine.

    Hello all, I am sold on purchasing a G3 Zbook with a Dream Color display. Overall is the 15" or 17" better?

    I don't have the G3 but I have the 17" G2. The 15" might be more portable but if I were getting a 4K Dreamcolor screen I would want a 17".

    Has anyone had trouble with their Zbook 15 Dreamcolor display having a distorted image or dropping the built in display entirely upon resuming the machine? I am running the latest bios (1.35A), and it happens on Windows 7 / 10 and Ubuntu 16.04. HP support thinks its the panel itself, but is saying that a replacement panel is back-ordered until late September.

    I can generally get the display back if the image is distorted, by suspending / resuming over and over again, but if it drops off completely then the only way to recover the machine is a hard shut down or hooking up an external display (if I am near one) and restarting.

    Hi, I have an Issues with the Zbook 15 G3 audio.

    I have installed all the drivers but it seems like the sound will randomly just stop working. Its completely random. Sometimes in windows, sometimes when back from sleep.

    A reboot always fixes it but this is very disappointing considering the audio quality is so great.

    anyone have this happen?

    Hi Everyone,

    I was able to get my hand on two 15" G1 Z books, and I was wondering if anyone has any experience with upgrading the MXM card to something more current like either AMD's Polaris or Nvidia's Pascal architectures?

    shows someone upgrading their system with a MXM-A Geforce GTX 965m which uses Nvidia's previous generation Maxwell Architecture

    *I know the laptop is only designed to take MXM-A cards but I was thinking that MXM-A and B seem to have screw holes in the same place and I would have enough space for much better MXM-B card if I dremeled away the optical drive sata connector
