HP has delivered up the new HP Z1 line, a beefy new all-in-one workstation with 27 inches of IPS display catered toward the 3D and graphics professional. The slightly chunky (yet low profile) computer looks much like a thick monitor, sports a 2560 x 1440, IPS display, Xeon (i3 or E3) processor and options for NVIDIA GPUs, Quadro 500M on the Entry level rigs up to the Q4000M on the high end. It starts at $1899 and will be available to rock your desktop early April.

The workstation display folds down, has an easy to open back to reach all those CAD crankin’ components and comes with 5 internal USB ports, 2 side usb ports and 4 at the rear. You also get a DVD (or Blu-ray) drive on the side, an integrated 1080p webcam and the options to tie in a secondary display if 27 inches is too little for you. You can get all the dets on the HP Z1 here.

    I like the look of all-in-one computers, but they don’t make sense. The lifespan of a monitor is much longer than the computing hardware which gets replaced every 3-5 years.

     Just wished it had dual-sockets so I could have two distinct processors – then you got a very good rendering machine! I’d sure go for it, every 3 years I get a new rig anyways… new technologies, processors etc… necessitate it in my case.

     well, i guess this thing can be used as a monitor as well once the computer inside of it becomes obsolete beyond the possibility of upgrade.
