The HP ZBook Firefly 15 G8 (2021) is a thin and light Windows mobile workstation that replaces the HP ZBook Firefly 15 G7 from 2020. The Firefly is the thinnest and most affordable model in HP’s ZBook lineup, which includes the ZBook Studio, ZBook Fury, and ZBook Power. The Firefly G8’s outer design is identical to its predecessor as it’s largely an internal spec upgrade. It has Intel 11th Gen processors, Intel Xe Graphics and NVIDIA Quadro T500 GPU options, faster 3200Mhz memory, and Thunderbolt 4 support. At the time of this review, there’s already a newer ZBook Firefly G9 with Intel 12th Gen CPUs and NVIDIA T550 discrete graphics.

Our HP ZBook Firefly has a 1080p 250 nit display, an Intel Core i7-1185G7 CPU, an NVIDIA Quadro T500 discrete GPU, 32GB of memory, and 512GB of storage. There are 1080p and 4k display options, including a 1000 cd/m² FHD panel with an integrated privacy screen. Other CPU options include the Intel Core i5-1135G7, i5-1145G7, and i7-1165G7. The NVIDIA Quadro T500 is the only discrete GPU option; otherwise, you can configure the laptop with integrated graphics only. You can get up to 64GB of memory and 2TB of storage.
