This is the best laptop for engineering students. Since engineering is a wide field with a lot of sub disciplines, a student needs to have a very powerful PC.
Some of the software that an engineering student can run in his or her laptop includes AutoCAD, Simulink and MATLAB which in many cases won’t run in a MacBook.
The HP ZBook a4 fits them nicely. This laptop comes with a Windows 7 Pro System together with a 14-inch and a display of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Some of its properties inside are a 2.1GHZ Intel Core i7 CPU, 16GB RAM and a 240GB Solid-state Drive (SSD).
