Product Description

Whether you’re an architect, graphic designer, or STEAM educator, the Z2 G5 Mini Workstation from HP delivers high-end performance in a small, compact form factor. It will let you take on 3D design projects, work in multiple pro apps simultaneously, and is certified for single- and multi-threaded software, including Bentley MicroStation, AutoDesk AutoCAD, GRAPHISOFT ARCHICAD, Vectorworks, Autodesk Revit, and SolidWorks, along with Adobe titles including InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom, and XD. Widely versatile and made for the modern workplace, the Z2 G5 Mini can be secured under your desk or behind your monitor, and can also be mounted in racks for virtualized installations.

The system is powered by a 10th Gen 2.9 GHz Intel Core i7-10700 Eight-Core processor that will allow you to run multiple applications simultaneously and can be boosted up to 4.8 GHz. The 32GB of 3200 MHz DDR4 RAM helps to ensure smooth multitasking and also allows the computer to quickly access frequently used files and programs. While the current memory configuration is 2 x 16GB, there are two 260-pin SO-DIMM memory slots that will allow the RAM to be upgraded to 64GB, using a 32GB module in each of the two slots.

For storage of your files, the 512GB Z Turbo Drive PCIe SSD has an M.2 2280 form factor, uses the PCIe 3.0 x4 bus, and offers quick access to your data. For additional internal storage, there is an extra M.2 2280 slot for an NVMe PCIe SSD. If you want to add external storage drives or other peripherals, the Z2 Mini G5 features two 10 Gb/s USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C ports with 5V/3A of charging power, plus four 10 Gb/s USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports, with one of the Type-A ports doubling as a 5V/2.1A charging port. The dedicated NVIDIA Quadro T1000 graphics card has 4GB of GDDR6 RAM, delivers a sharp, clear picture, and features three DisplayPort 1.4 outputs which support HDR and a maximum resolution of 5120 x 3200 @ 60 Hz.

Whether you are listening to music, watching a movie, or playing a game, the integrated Realtek ALC3205-VA2-CG audio codec outputs high-definition audio and delivers higher fidelity than standard audio controllers. Connect to your network using the Gigabit Ethernet port, or take advantage of Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) for wireless connectivity. Thanks to Bluetooth 5,0, you’ll be able to connect wireless peripherals such as keyboards, mice, and headsets.

The Z2 Mini G5 Workstation includes a USB keyboard, a USB mouse, and a power cord. It runs using a 280W power supply. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Pro (64-bit).

Windows 10

Start Menu

After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8’s Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.


Microsoft’s digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.

Microsoft Edge

After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.

Windows Store

For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.

Windows Continuum

Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it’s not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.

Xbox on Windows 10

Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

Windows 10 Pro

The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all of the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for business users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.
