    Is it just me - or is the newer ZBook 17s, e.g. G3 onwards with IPS more likely to have screen bleed/imperfections than the earlier generations? Have not had as many screen issues with ZBook 15 G1/G2 before.

    Sent in the 2nd 17 G3 with some backlight bleeding from the office - HP first said no issues found - I sent them the photos. They kindly replaced it. However, when received there is still small backlight leak on the top. Much less noticeable than before, though - still there.This is after sending it in for repair! Probably call quits whilst I'm still ahead.

    I consider switch to zbook G2 but as I check the model I want buy has i7 4710MQ. I dont think it will be much burst.

    Just out of morbid curiosity - apparently the ZBook 17 G3's battery is affected by a recent recall (among other laptops).
    Has anyone got HP to replace it? Seems to be alot of work to go through to book it (in the old days it was just a simple battery swap - now got to remove the back cover!) Then again keen not to come back to the office finding everything's burnt. :)

    Not all of them are affected by the bug. It's only a portion of them. They said the g4 would be too but we don't have any that us affected. I would check all the units with the app
