This monster packs a lot of presentation power

Price: from €2,400 Rating: ****

In the jargon-heavy world of computers, there are 'laptops', 'notebooks' and even 'ultrabooks'. But the biggest beasts are reserved for the term 'mobile workstations'. Such a machine is HP's Zbook series.

To call it portable is a little misleading, as this monster is not designed to compete with a MacBook Air for sleek carryability.

Instead, it goes all-out on specifications, sturdiness and reliability. To this end, you can configure it almost any way you want (including Windows 7 instead of Windows 8). But at a minimum, you'll get high-end Intel chips, loads of Ram and storage, premium graphics and screens and non-plasticky, robust chassis finishes. In other words, this is specifically designed not to flake out on you just when the big presentation is about to begin.
