HP ZBook Studio 16 G10 review – finally, capable thin and light mobile workstation


HP describes the ZBook Studio G10 as a mobile workstation which is a bold claim given the stylish thin body. This machine kind of reminds us of a MacBook Pro laptop and it even can be ordered in some regions with a Z Command Keyboard that replicates a Mac layout. So, with this optional feature, Apple users should have less trouble when switching to this Windows-based laptop.

The hardware options look suitable for a workstation. You can choose among Intel Raptor Lake H and HX CPUs and there is a plethora of GPU variants including professional RTX Ada Generation video cards. We can also spot two gaming GPUs and the most powerful one is the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080. All that is fitted in a slim and light chassis so at least on paper, this is a serious challenge for the cooling.

The display department is no joke – the base model is a 16:10 1200p IPS panel, and there are two 2400p variants – one is a standard WLED display, while the other is an OLED touchscreen model. At first glance, the HP ZBook Studio 16 G10 has all the needed ingredients for a workstation – powerful CPU and GPU options, high-res display choices, and many useful features. The other things that we are about to check right now are also important – this includes cooler performance, temperatures under load, build quality, and display capabilities. Let’s go!
