    A new video posted claims that the 8th gen CPU models will be released in the next 20 days.

    HP is having a "Back to Business" sale. With a 15% off coupon code floating around, you can get the low end model for $1,550 plus tax.


    It also looks like the RAM and hard drive are upgradeable. It might not be super easy and probably voids the warranty, but based on the user guide in the link below, it's definitely possible.

    This reason alone is why I find the Zbook so attractive compared to anything Wacom puts out. Unlike Wacom who charges the same price for well over a year and almost never puts out a decent discount......HP at least does cool **** like this.

    Yes! Upgradeability!

    ...suction cups? Is it... held together by glue and not clips??

    Lowkey wondering if I could install a fingerprint reader if I get a config that doesn't have it. Hm...

    I didn’t see anything about glue when I read through the guide. I think it’s mainly screws holding it together.

    I gave it a try: on a custom configuration it roughly cut the price by a 23%.
    Which isn't bad at all. :)

    Yup, with a 3 yr warranty, 32g ram and a 256g ssd, about 2500. Still waiting for the 8th gen i7 though.
