HP EliteBook 6930p breaks the 24-hour Battery Life Barrier

September 10, 2008

24 hours, pretty good benchmark to reach for a laptop don’t you think? It’s exactly what the HP EliteBook 6930p can manage up to! It utilises the newer SSD hard disks that add 7 percent to battery life because of lower power consumption requirements. They’ve also added the option of mercury-free LED screen (14.1-inch) which add another 4 hours to the battery life.

  • Use an HP EliteBook 6930p continuously on the world’s longest scheduled commercial airline flight – linking Newark Liberty International Airport and Singapore Changi Airport – approximately 18 hours, 40 minutes.
  • Take more than 10 trips on the EuroStar train between London and Paris – approximately 2 hours, 15 minutes each direction – before recharging the battery.
  • Travel as a passenger by car from Maine to Florida using a notebook during the entire journey.

Looks like to get the target of 24 hours you need to purchase the ultra-capacity battery, upgrade to the LED display and 80 gigabyte version of the SSD.

Should be avliable in October some time.
