HP is releasing a brand new all-in-one workstation, and they say it’s designed for creative professionals. The HP Z1 G3 features a 23.6” display, and a classic, boxy, professional design. It appears at first glance to be quite a standard HP screen, but inside it boasts a 3.7GHz Intel Core i3 processor, as well as Intel HD graphics and 4GB of DDR4 RAM. There is also a 1TB hard drive packed inside, making it a powerful business machine.

The 2MP webcam is clear but not the most high-definition you’ll find on the market. There is an SD card reader, two Thunderbolt 2 ports, and six USB 3.0 ports. There is of course a Display Port (1.2), as well as a Gigabit Ethernet port.

The built-in stereo speakers mean you won’t have to hook in any external audio systems, and the diagonal anti-glare UHD display packs in more colors than previous HP all-in-ones, and displays images in crystal clear 4K.

This incarnation of the G3 all-in-one station is thinner than the previous version, and users can now access the internals of the PC without any tools. This makes it easier to upgrade parts or perform maintenance.

The new setup comes with Windows 10 Pro 64-bit pre-installed, and it will be available directly from HP for $699.
