The digital revolution has paved the way for remote work. In such scenarios, professionals need capable machines that are not only powerful but also compact enough to be carried anywhere. A mobile workstation perfectly fills this role. And when it comes to mobile workstations HP’s latest Zbook firefly range of laptops is our first choice. And in this hp zbook firefly 14 g7 review we will see what makes it the best mobile workstation.
A mobile workstation has to fare well on two aspects – ‘display’ and ‘performance.’ And Zbook firefly far surpasses the expectations on both of these aspects. It has a stunning 4K IPS screen with 550 nits brightness packed within a 14-inch display lid with slim bezels. The colour reproduction is great and images look sharp and vibrant. While considering the performance factor, it is capable enough to run all modern 3D modeling applications with its i7 10th Gen Processor, NVidia Quadro P520 GPU, 32 GB RAM. A 512 GB SSD extendible to 2 TB makes the applications load faster.
Another important aspect of an ideal mobile workstation is its compactness. HP claims that Zbook firefly 14 G7 is the world’s lightest and smallest 14-inch workstation, and Zbook really stays true to this claim. It weights around 1.4 Kgs and is small enough to provide excellent portability. It provides an excellent battery backup of more than 8 hours running in high-performance mode. RAM and SSD can be easily upgraded.
Security is one thing that a mobile workstation has to excel at. And rest assured HP has done a wonderful job at implementing security features, both at hardware and software levels. Features like fingerprint scanning, data encryption, privacy-shutter cam, password recovery, bios self-recovery, workstation administration tools, and a bunch of other utilities are more than enough to keep your system secure and responsive.
As far as connectivity is concerned, Zbook has a lot to impress. It has a headphone/microphone input, a smart-card reader slot, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, two USB Type-C ports (thunderbolt supported), an HDMI output, and the power jack. It also supports Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and LTE connectivity with sim cards.
