HP ZBook Studio G3

Recommended Posts


I am looking at a HP ZBook Studio G3 with the following specs:

NVIDIA® Quadro® M1000M with 4GB dedicated GDDR5 graphics memory

Intel® Core™ i7 Processor non vPro Label

16 GB 2133 DDR4 SDRAM (1 DIMM)

512 GB PCIe Z Turbo Solid-State Drive (SSD)

15.6 inch LED Touchscreen


Does anyone have any experience with a computer like this with Map3D or Civil 3D? If so how does it perform?

Did you compare it to any other laptops? For example...the Dell Precision 5510?

The quadro is over spec'ed for AutoCAD work imho. A GTX based unit will save some $$ and you should see no difference in performance. A touchscreen is also overkill unless the laptop is a convertible (screen flips over). I recently (last year) bought an Asus N550JK laptop (i7 quad, 16gb, 256 ssd, 2gb GTX 850/Intel 4600 w/touch screen) and I really don't use the touch screen at all. It runs Revit, AutoCAD Arch, Acad, PS and Illustrator with no issue.


What I like on the HP:

6th gen core i7

16gb DDR4

3840 x 2160 available screen res


Still gun shy on HP pc products myself. Not a bad looking unit.
