4 reasons to BUY the HP ZBook 17 G6
1. Battery life
The battery capacity is huge – 95.6 Wh. The big unit and the optimizations by HP lead to impressive battery life – more than 14 hours of Web browsing and over 13 hours of videos! For such a powerful machine with a big screen, this is a really good score.
You can upgrade the memory up to 128GB (you can use ECC memory too – it depends on the processor you choose). There are more options – two M.2 NVMe slots and two SATA drive slots. You can upgrade the graphics card (which is an NVIDIA Quadro) too – wow.
3. The I/O
There are so many ports on this machine. On the left – an RJ-45 connector, three USB Type-A 3.1 (Gen. 1) ports, an SD card slot, and a Smart Card reader. On the right – two USB Type-C Thunderbolt 3 connectors, a full-sized HDMI connector, a Mini DisplayPort, an audio combo jack, and an optical drive.
4. The screen
The screen (AUO B173HAN01.0 AUO109D) of this workstation is a superb one – it covers 93% of sRGB (our Gaming and Web design profile will enhance the potential of the panel for color-sensitive work). The screen is PWM-free and has a good contrast ratio – 1300:1.

1. The price
Well, the price is a hefty one. The laptop is built like a tank, has a great screen, a lot of upgradability options (including upgradable Quadro GPU), and superb battery life – all those things don’t come cheap.
