Apple’s Mac Pro has been ignored for so long that even Windows 10 mobile workstations are catching up on features and performance.
Take HP’s latest Zbook laptop workstations, which were announced on Friday. These heavy built laptops—which is why they are called mobile workstations—have comparable memory and storage capacity technology to the Mac Pro, but excel in other areas.
The laptops feature Thunderbolt 3 ports, DDR4 memory, Intel’s latest Kaby Lake-based Core and Xeon processors, and the latest GPUs from Nvidia and AMD.
By comparison the Mac Pro has Thunderbolt 2 ports, an old AMD GPU, DDR3 memory and Intel Xeon processors based on the Ivy Bridge architecture, which were released in 2013.
