You know that old saying, "That's so easy a kid could do it...."? Well, imagine that "kid" was an 11-year old and the "It's so easy" part was referring to upgrading a Z1 Workstation. Well, we talked a good game a while back when we first unveiled the sweet-looking high-powered all-in-one. Now, though, in video form we have proof on Youtube as 11-year-old Eleanor Rose Ozer disassembles....and then puts it back together. Blindfolded. You really need to see this.
Back when we first announced the Z1 Workstation, I was mightily impressed by its design. What really blew me away, though, was how easily you could get into its guts. (Heck, I'd love to see this ease-of-access everywhere!) As HP's Jim Christensen first said when we first unveiled the Z1 a little while back, “Honestly, the Z1 doesn’t lookanythinglike a typical workstation. The HP Z1’s sleek and simple all-in-one design provides the perfect canvas on which to create. Its display snaps open to let users easily add a hard drive, upgrade memory or access the graphics card —no tools required.”
Need proof? That’s where the video clip I was talking about above comes into play. Jan Ozerhas worked in digital video since 1990, and is the author of 13 books related to video technology. Jan currently writes forStreamingMedia.com, Digital Content Producer and EventDV. He also happens to have a daughter that he apparently likes to make rebuild computers on video. Maybe I should let him explain….

Three years ago, 8-year old Eleanor Rose Ozer took apart the HP Z800 and then put it back together. It booted.
In 2012, she brings her considerable talents to HP's groundbreaking Z1, the first field serviceable All-in-one workstation, which she will take apart and then reassemble ...
