HP All in One Workstation - Portable, Powerful, and Affordable! - So, it may (or may not) surprise you that for the past few weeks I've been the happy user of a very sweet, and big, HP Z1 all in one workstation. This is courtesy of some new friends (and old HP fiends from Fort Collins, Colorado) from HP that I made at the ESRIUC last July who so graciously connected me with a demo unit to put through the paces. For those of you not yet familiar with the "all in one" devices from HP, simply put, the Z1 is a very handy and powerful workstation that comes conveniently bundled in a single piece of hardware.
