Cracking Open the $7000 HP Z1 Workstation

HP Z1 Workstation teardown

The HP Z1 Workstation may look like your average Windows all-in-one computer, but it's not. This machine is packed with high-end hardware, has a near tool-less chassis, and was designed to be cool and quiet. Although you can get and entry level Z1 for $1,899 (US), HP was kind enough to loan us a $7,000+ powerhouse.

Follow along as I go under the Z1's "hood" for a look at the hardware inside.
