HP has launched four new workstations aimed at product designers, architects, creative professionals, OEMs, educators and financial/office workers.

The company said in a statement that the new HP Z Workstation line would deliver sufficient power for this class of people to be productive without any strain.

The four workstations — the HP Z2 Mini, HP Z2 Small Form Factor and HP Z2 Tower, as well as the HP EliteDesk 800 Workstation Edition — are claimed to be the company's most secure and manageable workstations.

HP security services provide protection from evolving malware threats with the first and only self-healing BIOS and HP endpoint security controller.

Users will also be protected by hardware-enforced security solutions including HP Sure Start Gen41 and HP Sure Run2 which help keep critical processes running, even if malware tries to stop them.

Additionally, HP’s Manageability Kit Gen 2 can be used to manage multiple devices.

“The number one thing we hear from creative professionals and other power users is the need for higher-performance PCs built to meet their needs. Our new HP Z workstation portfolio addresses this by delivering our most powerful entry workstations,” said Chris Price, director, Personal Systems, HP South Pacific.

“By combining superb graphics performance, flexible configuration options, and integrated software experiences in our most secure desktop workstations, the new HP Z lineup has been thoughtfully designed to unleash creativity, maximise productivity and reinvent future workflows.”

The four new workstations are priced as under:

  • the HP Z2 Mini Workstation has a starting price of $1199;
  • the HP Z2 G4 Small Form Factor Workstation's starting price is $2299;
  • the HP Z2 G4 Tower Workstation has a starting price of $2699; and
  • the HP EliteDesk 800 Workstation Edition costs $3199, inclusive of NVIDIA Quadro P400 graphics.
