Today at CES HP showcased the second generation of the world’s first all-in-one workstation. This device builds on the success of the first-generation HP Z1, to include a 27-inch diagonal touchscreen display, lots of power, and a myriad of other features that make this device a real workhorse capable of running the most graphic-intensive and demanding programs.

Let’s first dive into this exciting new form factor. From the pictures, below you can see the compact and slim design. The Z1 G2 features a stunning 27-inch diagonal touchscreen display that is ideal for interacting with 3D models, maps, or other interactive programs. You will be able to take full advantage of Windows 8.1 features and functionality.

The Z1 G2 also has the awesome ability to recline to a position that is most comfortable for you, or to lay flat parallel to your table or desk for servicing. HP has really done some great work in the ergonomics and device flexibility space. If you don’t believe me, check out the HP ENVY Recline.

If more power is what you crave, then power you shall get with the Z1 G2. Powered by an Intel 4th generation Xenon and Core processors, this all-in-one is ready for whatever program you can throw at it (and of course, many more than one at a time). It also pack a NVIDIA Mobile Quadro GPU for excellent graphics performance.

The need for big power, is often correlated to producing big files, but rest assured knowing that you will be able to connect to a flash drive and transfer them up to four times faster than USB 3.0 with the Thunderbolt 2.0 ports located on the side of the Z1 G2.

HP has done a magnificent job with the Z1 G2 and I am personally super excited to get to check one out for myself. If you are interested too, visit HP’s website for more information and expect to see the Z1 G2 shipping in the US later this month.
