HP unveils 27″ All-In-One Workstation

Even though sales of desktop computers have been in constant decline these days, it is good to see that computer manufacturers are still thinking of those users that require a desktop with plenty of horsepower. HP recently unveiled the Z1, a 27″ 2560 x 1440 IPS all-in-one computer which is expected to start shipping in April.

Unlike, Apple’s all-in-one iMac, the Z1 snaps open to give users access to its CPU, making swapping out parts and upgrading a breeze. For those less inclined to make upgrades themselves it will come with plenty of options at the time of purchase, including: chipsets ranging from a Core i-3 3.33 GHz processors all the way up to a quad core Xeon CPUE3-1280; memory slots that are capable of handling up to 32 GB of ram; integrated graphics cards up to a high end 3D NVIDIA Q4000M GPU; and 7200 rpm 3.5 in drives with capacities up to 2 TB as well as SSD up to 300 GB. It will include 2 USB 3.0 ports, 4 USB 2.0 ports, an integrated 1080p HD 2.0 megapixel web camera and a SRS premium sound system with dual cone front facing stereo speakers.

The lowest end model will start at $1,899 but with all these options available, it is doubtful if anyone will opt for this entry level model. For comparison purposes, the lowest end 27″ iMac with a Core i5 processor, 4 GB of ram and a 1 TB hard drive is presently priced at $1,699.
