The new HP Z1 G2 features a touch screen but make sure your 3D software makes the most of the tech.

HP wants designers, engineers and managers to get ‘hands on’ with its new HP Z1 G2.

The computing giant has added Windows 8 touch capabilities to its second-generation all-in-one workstation which features a 27-inch IPS (2,560 x 1,440) display.

With the boardroom being one of the intended homes for this stylish machine having touchscreen capabilities makes a lot of sense. It’s far easier to use one’s fingers than to pass round a mouse in collaborative sessions, but it does rely on the design / review software being touch-enabled.
Other new features of HP’s slick all-in-one workstation include Intel Thunderbolt 2 for high-speed connection to external devices as well as the obligatory CPU and GPU upgrades.

The HP Z1 G2 offers a range of 4th Generation Intel Xeon and Core processors including the Xeon E3-1280v3, E3-1245v3, E3-1225v3 and the Core i5-4570 and Core i3-4130, plus a choice of GPUs including Nvidia Quadro K610M (1GB), Quadro K2100M (2GB),Quadro K3100M (4GB) and Quadro K4100M (4GB).

The machine can host up to 32GB ECC or 16GB non-ECC memory and a choice of SATA and mSATA SSDs and 7,200RPM and 10,000RPM HDDs.
