Shop HP is the largest computer manufacturer in the world. They also supply businesses around the world with workstations, which are desktops intended to be used in high performance situations such as 3D rendering, heavy graphic design and more. The HP xw Workstation is just such a beast. Read on for our full review. Build and Design The xw workstation certainly makes a statement. All of the case is solid metal save for the front, which is merely a plastic facade that sits on top of more metal.

I suspect you could knock it off of a chair and still have a working computer. This heavy box can take a beating. Beneath the stickers the case is a shiny silver; if nothing else, the stickers prevent it from getting scratched up. The front of the case has more of the stickers found everywhere else, cut around the more delicate features of the case design.

Behind the grill rests a surprisingly good speaker. Moreover, the front grill provide a necessary point of entry for airflow within the case that is funneled around drives, RAM and processor, then expelled from the back.

The back of the case shows off the big fan vent and just how many options owners have for expansion. More of the stickers can be found on each side of the computer.

Despite covering up the visible indented logo, you can still find HP prominently displayed on the sides. On the left-hand side of the case is possibly my favorite feature on the entire computer. The little lever in the door panel of the computer lets harried IT workers quickly pop off the entire side of the case with one quick motion.

Alienware has a similar, more difficult-to-use mechanism located on the backs of their cases. Using a small lever like this is so much easier than using thumbscrews or more traditional forms of case fasteners. Once the side of the case is popped off, you can see the roomy interior. Lots of room inside means lots of room for expansion.

Cleverly placed heatsinks and venting fans help to improve overall case airflow. The better the airflow a case has, the fewer the fans are needed to keep it cool.

Even with a workstation graphics card inside, the desktop never puts out enough to be uncomfortable or, honestly, even that noticeable. Inputs and Expansion The xw offers so much expandability, and in most ways possible. The front of the machine has two USB 2. Our review unit also came with a fairly standard in-1 media card reader, which really helps if you need to pull a lot of pictures off of a camera.

On the back of the system there are seven more USB 2. Internally, there are three more USB 2. Inside you can fit one more 5. Benchmarks and Performance wPrime is a PC performance benchmarking program that forces the computer to perform recursive mathematical calculations. The HP xw Workstation is just that — a workstation. So what makes a workstation different from a regular computer?

HP will say that it uses stronger components designed to help you achieve your goals in the fastest, most efficient way possible. Workstations are sort of to business desktops as consumer gaming machines are to regular desktops. To that end, I decided to add in a couple of benchmarks that are geared a little more toward the kind of activities the traditional workstation user might attempt. SPECapc Maya 6.
