Road warriors, celebrate – No more angling for the one seat at Starbucks that’s within reach of a wall outlet. No more borrowing an office just so you can plug in and log on. You know that laptop battery life is critical for professionals who are frequently on the road without access to a power source for hours at a time.
HP has introduced the new HP ElliteBook 6930p notebook computer with an optional “ultra-capacity” battery that lasts up to 24 hours on a single charge.
Designed and tested to last, HP batteries benefit from a combination of HP engineering and energy-efficient notebook components such as Intel solid-state hard drives (SSD) and mercury-free LED displays. For example, 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.
“All-day computing has been the holy grail of notebook computing,” said Ted Clark, senior vice president and general manager, Notebook Global Business Unit, HP. “With the HP EliteBook 6930p, customers no longer have to worry about their notebook battery running out before their work day is over.”
In addition to the extended use battery, the HP EliteBook 6930p has features geared toward mobile professionals, including a shock-resistant hard drive, enhanced display panel and spill-resistant keyboard to protect against bumps, drops and spills.
