Thin at 1.0″ and weighing 5.7 pounds, the 15.6″ ZBook 15 G5 Mobile Workstation from HP has been designed to thrive with heavy workloads from rendering, engineering, and simulation. It is powered by a 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7-9850H Six-Core processor which allows you to run multiple applications simultaneously. If you need more power, the system can be overclocked to 4.6 GHz using Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. The 16GB of 2666 MHz DDR4 RAM helps to ensure smooth multitasking and also allows the computer to quickly access frequently-used files and programs. The current memory configuration is 1 x 16GB, which can be upgraded to 128GB by using a 32GB memory module in each of the four 260-pin SO-DIMM slots.
The 15.6″ display features a Full HD 1920 x 1080 screen resolution, an anti-glare finish, LED-backlighting, an ambient light sensor, a 16:9 aspect ratio, a contrast ratio of 600:1, a refresh rate of 60 Hz, a brightness of 400 cd/m2, coverage for 72% of the sRGB gamut, 142 ppi, and viewing angles of 85/85/85/85°. The dedicated NVIDIA Quadro T2000 graphics card has 4GB of discrete GDDR5 video memory and delivers a sharp, clear picture. You’ll also be able to output video to an external display using the system’s HDMI 2.0b and dual Thunderbolt 3 ports, the latter of which supports DisplayPort 1.4.
For storage of your files, this ZBook 15 G5 is equipped with a 512GB NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD. If you’d like to expand the internal storage, there is one additional M.2 2280 slot for a SATA or PCIe SSD, plus a 2.5″ / 7mm SATA drive bay. If you want to add external storage, optical drives, memory card readers, and more, the ZBook 15 G5 offers two 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 ports that also support 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C. There are also two 5 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports and one USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A charging port. Gigabit Ethernet and Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) are also built-in for wired and wireless networking, and Bluetooth 5.0 technology will also allow you to connect additional compatible peripherals.
So that content from memory cards may be accessed, a built-in SD/SDHC/SDXC card reader supports UHS-II flash media and lets users download content from their digital camera. Other integrated features include a 1080p IR webcam for face authentication with Windows Hello, dual-array digital mics, a third world-facing mic, stereo speakers with Bang & Olufsen HD audio, and a Smart Card reader.
The ZBook 15 G5 includes a 150W Slim Smart AC adapter, a power cord, and an HP Long Life 4-cell / 90Wh lithium-ion polymer battery that can operate for up to 17.75 hours before recharging is required. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) and protection is provided by a limited 3-year parts & labor warranty.
