Sintel in HP Z1 Workstation Video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7OAji8R-_jQ&feature=player_embedded#!

Hey look, HP built themselves an iMac clone! (And for some unfathomable reason, focus half of their movie on the boring insides of the machine). Anyway, a nice Sintel sighting by Johnell and Fabrix.

    Fixed it for you ;)

  3. From what I've been reading/watching you can apparently open this guy up and change the parts without any special tools. I'll have to do a bit more research on it but I am definitely interested. Thank you for posting this article..

  4. Nice commercial and nice design but starting at 1900$ ? For a crappy i3-2120? :O
    Even a iMac is cheaper. I don't want to know how much the Xeon/Q4000M version is.

  5. I think the texturing and lighting on the innards are actually pretty poor, so I hope it wasn't rendered in Blender. I'd guess it was not, because if you look closer they're viewing Sintel in Adobe Premiere.

  6. They're focusing on the innards because this is a revealing of their new system. Though I recall them having an all-in-one that looked like this with a touch screen several years ago ..

    All-in-one computers have been around for a while. My mom owned on in the early 2000s. iMac wasn't the first, though the most popular due to the Apple brand peddling. I used to have a Tandy (before Radio Shack bought the brand) that had everything all built in.

  7. If that is a iMac clone, then they should show what's inside the machine.
    Apple builds (read: Chinese children build) Macs with plastic explosives underneath so that if you try to see what's inside, you won't live to tell the tale.
    Yeah. Except for Sintel, boring ad. C'mon HP, release the WebOS already and stop making these Windows toys.

    How's that for a provocative comment? :P

  8. Imac clone!? not hardly, this PC appears to be fully upgrade-able and easily at that... this is far better than any shit mac...
    They focus on the interior because that's the important aspect of the PC, the fact that while its so compact, they still used standard parts and are showing just how easy it is to upgrade.
    I wonder if the video itself is rendered in blender? Its clearly a 3d rendering...
