Does a quad core workstation have to be as bulky as it's powerful? HP clearly doesn't believe so, and having spent some time with the new HP ZBook Studio today, I'm inclined to agree. At 18mm thick it classifies as an ultrabook, but HP is courting dissatisfied MacBook Pro users who want the power of a full Intel Core i7 or Xeon processor.

Not so long ago, any time a child had with a screened device was seen as frivolous playtime. That’s not true now, because kids spend more time reading and doing school work with tablets and computers than parents would have thought possible just a few years ago.
