    They were on the site the other night but only with Quadro M1000M (4 GB version). I was waiting to see if they got the configurations sorted for at least the M2000M option but now they don't seem to be on the site anymore. Hope they're available soon.

    Hello all!

    First message on the forum :)

    Anyone got problems with zBook studio G3 thunderbolt-dock ?

    My setup:

    zBook studio G3, tb-dock hooked up with 27" Dell, display port, HDD usb 3.0, Ethernet cable. When I connect usb DAC the audio turns randomly to static noise, stuttering, lag or lastly: stops completely. I have tried several usb dac´s. When connected straight to zBook audio is fine.

    Problem solved - case closed.

    As a magician - I pulled the rabbit out of the hat. This time it was Intel Rabbit storage carbage-utility. Long evening with troubleshooting this and that but LatencyMon helped a lot. Uninstalled Intel rapid Storage driver&utility and changed it to default Microsoft AHCI-driver stopped stuttering and random static noise with usb DAC´s. I hope someday Intel will fix this...

    PetriP, good info.

    Turning to ship dates.... HP slipped the ship date for my Zbook Studio G3 (UHD Dreamcolor, i6820) from 03 June to 17 June 2016. Upon asking for partial refund, the agent immediately offered USD 80 for the delay, credited to my Amex card upon shipment. That USD 80 is in addition to the %5 rebate on purchase price (about USD 130) from the current HP/Amex promotion (automatically shows up on your Amex statement).

    Can someone clarify how much extra stuff you can put into a regular G3? I'm reading two NVMe drives, two 2.5" SATA drives, and two M.2 SSD drives?
