HP’s Z1 “Power without Tower”

It was a nice weather on Tuesday 14 in San Diego and every one was enjoying the SolidWorks World 2012. It was the day when HP unveiled the world’s first all-in-one workstation with a 27-inch diagonal display at a press luncheon.

Tom Salomone, HP’s MCAD & AEC Segment manager quoted on this machine “It’s power without tower.”

Designed like no other, the display of the new HP Z1 Workstation snaps open so users can easily swap out parts and make upgrades without any tools required.

The HP Z1 combines a sleek industrial design with accelerated performance featuring Intel® Xeon® processorsNVIDIA Quadro graphics, support for more than 1 billion colors and HP’s world-class reliability.

Built for computer-aided design, digital media and entertainment professionals, the HP Z1 provides blazingly fast rendering and performance. It offers a full range of workstation-class graphics cards and processors, and is thoroughly tested and certified to work with today’s leading industry applications.
