HP ZBook x360 – The Most Powerful Convertible Work Stations
As we all know, HP isn’t the first one to bring in the convertible mobile work station. It was Lenovo, back in 2015. But HP did come up with some really good hybrids and has now brought some of that sensitivity to its newly updated 15-inch Zbook x360. The Studio G5 and the new Studio x360 easily breakout from the old mould of black-and-gray slabs and thick-grooved displays.
A display that can perceive a billion colors
The Studio G5 and the new Studio x360 come with the HP DreamColor 4K anti-glare display. This display is 20% brighter than Apple MacBook Pro and 50% brighter than Dell XPS5. It allows you to experience one billion vibrant colors.
Compared to the industry standard sRGB, the Zbook come with Adobe RGB that offer you more colors to work with and to see. It is pretty useful for color critical workflows. It can be of great help when you need to match the color setting of your camera, or the final desired color in print.
Our eyes can perceive more than one billion colors. The Zbooks have the display that can match that. It provides a more true-to-life representation of your color-critical work. The display also comes with 600 nits brightness. This allows you to see and discern different vivid colors. The lighting condition you are working in doesn’t really matter.
It has a display that helps reduce glare. It also improves the touchscreen experience with your hand and with the pen. The surface of the screen is texturized and matt-like. It feels more like drawing on paper. There is also an ambient light sensor. It automatically dims or brightens based on your surroundings. This way you can take your work anywhere be it indoors or outdoors.
