This is a new milestone in mobile computing. HP has announced the launch of a new HP EliteBook 6930p configured with an optional ultra-capacity battery delivered up to 24 hours of battery runtime. However this is only possible if you are using windows xp on your laptop. Its starting price is $ 1199. Ted Clark, senior vice president and general manager, Notebook Global Business Unit, HP said with the HP EliteBook 6930p, customers no longer have to worry about their notebook battery running out before their work day is over. This advancement in batter life has been made possible due to new HP hi-tech, engineering and energy-efficient notebook components like Intel’s solid-state hard drives and mercury-free LED displays.
Actually the highly efficient HP Illumi-Lite LED display boosts battery run time by up to 4 hours compared to traditional LCD displays, while the Intel SSD provides up to a 7 percent increase in battery life compared to traditional hard drives. I am also looking forward to this laptop. This technology is definitely a boon for regular travelers who love to use their laptops while traveling.
