    Which review are you referring to? My Zbook Studio G3 gets pretty good (6 to 7 hours at idle) battery life but I use a SATA SSD + FHD display and have no dedicated (Quadro) graphics. I think the standard review model is usually a high end spec so its typically going to get bad battery life.

    As far as the display goes HP uses many different panel brands. My model came with an LG IPS panel which is pretty bright, but not as bright as the Dreamcolor (UHD) panel. I have also heard of HP using AUO and Samsung panels with similar specs (AHVA or PLS). However its a random chance what you get depending on what HP has on hand at the time.

    There are only a few reviews....and the latest one is from laptop mag . Never mind, I placed my order without even going to see one. My Zbook Studio G4 will arrive before September.

    Finally got mine. It is much heavier than I thought and build quality is very good indeed

    Hello,
    another question : it seems difficult to find spare batteries.
    Do you think HP will continue producing and selling them in the future ?

    Thanks

    I use a Case Logic SLR Camera Backpack:

    https://www.caselogic.com/en-us/us/products/camera/backpacks/slr-camera-backpack-_-dcb_-_309_-_black

    It fits both the Zbook Studio G3 and Zbook 15 G3 perfect. Most of the time I am just carrying my EOS-M and extra computer junk, but it does fit my friend's 5d mk ii with a couple of lenses just fine. Its great for both walking and riding, and so far the sewing has held up to pretty good use over the last year and a half I have owned it.

    anyone here managed to get a 94wh (907584-852) battery? apparently it comes with the G4. I am trying to replace my battery but doesn't seem to be able to find anywhere selling it.
