Review: Lenovo ThinkPad P53 workstation

When it comes to getting serious work done, ordinary laptops aren't sufficient. Desktops can offer the most power, but the complete lack of portability makes them less than ideal for some users. That's where workstations come in. These laptops bring the performance capabilities of gaming laptops, but with the features and security considerations that professionals need. Lenovo offers a number of workstations in its P Series line, one of the latest models being the ThinkPad P53.

MSI’s Core i9 mobile workstation proves power needn’t be ugly

MSI brought a number of new products to Siggraph this year, but unquestionably the star of its lineup is the WS65 mobile workstation. If you've used MSI's GS65 Stealth Twin, then this new laptop will probably look familiar, as the company has outfitted it with a similar black chassis.

HP recalls notebook batteries because of overheating [UPDATE]

It’s a bad start to the year for the PC industry. It kicked off with the damning revelation of critical vulnerabilities that affect almost all CPUs, from Intel to ARM, made in the last decade.

HP ZBook x2 crams a workstation in 2-in-one form

Microsoft may have just unveiled not one but two new Surface Book 2s, but it’s hardly the only detachable PC game in town anymore. Other OEMs have already followed suit. HP, for example, already has the Elite x2 and the Spectre x2. So what’s the harm in adding one more? While differentiation is usually a concern, it’s no problem for the new HP ZBook x2. That’s because unlike any other 2-in-1 detachable PC in the market, HP boasts that all the power you need is packed inside the tablet half of the contraption.

Lenovo ThinkStation P410, P510 offer performance for every budget

Notebooks and mobile devices are getting more and more powerful every year, but for some use cases, those just aren't enough. Some users, especially businesses, are willing to sacrifice space and portability to be able to squeeze out every bit of performance from their computers.

HP ZBook Studio G3 Mobile Workstation Review

HP ZBook Studio G3 Mobile Workstation Review

The HP ZBook Studio G3 Mobile Workstation is as handsome as it is prepared to do the work you're going to need it to do. Unlike workstation laptops of the past, this unit does not dispense with the thinness or the weight, either.

It has a 15.6-inch display up front and your choice of a bunch of different innards under the hood.

Hands-on with HP’s potent ZBook Studio

Hands-on with HP’s potent ZBook Studio

Does a quad core workstation have to be as bulky as it's powerful? HP clearly doesn't believe so, and having spent some time with the new HP ZBook Studio today, I'm inclined to agree. At 18mm thick it classifies as an ultrabook, but HP is courting dissatisfied MacBook Pro users who want the power of a full Intel Core i7 or Xeon processor.

HP is taking on Apple's MacBook Pro with its slickest mobile workstation yet, the HP ZBook Studio. Billed as the first quadcore workstation ultrabook in the world, the 15.6-inch notebook measures 18mm thick - matching Apple's machine - and tips the scales at 4.4 pounds, despite a choice of Intel Core i7 or Xeon processors inside, Thunderbolt 3, and up to a UHD resolution display.
