LAS VEGAS -- There were occasional reminders at the Consumer Electronics Show that even in 2014, the fastest silicon is not in tablets and smartphones, or even inside PCs.
Enter Hewlett-Packard's new all-in-one workstation. It squeezes some pretty brawny silicon behind a 27-inch touch screen. And some serious cooling power too.
While consumers have gotten used to fanless phones and tablets, professional-class -- and some might say real -- horsepower still needs fans galore to keep things from overheating.
Expansion slots include 1 MXM (Mobile PCI Express) and 2 mini-PCIe/mSATA (full-length).
The Z1 G2 will run Windows 8 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (PDF), among other operating systems.
