Hi forum members,
I'm willing to buy a HP ZBook Studio G3 Mobile Workstation with product number "T7W00EA#ABH". All specs are good, but I get confused about one specfic specification... the WLAN card!
Some sites say there is a wireless card included and some say it is not. Also on the HP site itself I cannot find it, it looks in the datasheet that all models have a wireless card included. Isn't it strange if a laptop does not have a wireless card these days?
Who can help me to find the real answer?
Thank you in advance.

I can assure you there is a wireless card. I am sending this on a Zbook G3 MWS, have had the back off of it and can testify from personal knowledge that there is a wireless card. I think the exact card shipped with the unit is a matter of customization, but all of them will have one or the other wireless card.

Here is the link to the same product # for sale in the UK.
If you look at the specs page, it has wireless, and the probably the best available at this time...
802.11a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2

...and here is the official HP parts list for that product number...enter the product number in the box at the link below...
Under the wireless interface section, there are two models offered for that build, and you already know that it is this one, since that other site listed the wireless specs...
Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260NGW 802.11a/b/g/n+ac 2x2 WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2 combination adapter

Well then, it may have the other wlan card.
Either way, the product number is what you need to enter in the parts surfer website.
When you enter the #ABH or ABU, nothing shows up.
And either way, they are both top of the line wlan cards.

You're very welcome.
What I think is...if it is brand new (recently manufactured), it will have the newer card with bluetooth 4.2.
If the notebook is new old stock, then it will have the older Intel 7260 card.
Either way, both cards should meet all of your wireless connectivity needs.
