Summary: If all-day endurance is what you're looking for, the HP EliteBook 6930p will satisfy with an unprecedented 14 hours of battery life, partly thanks to a blazing Intel SSD. However, it's heavier and clumsier, and its performance scores are lower than what you'd get with a $1,399 configuration.
Summary: With its smooth metal styling, the HP EliteBook 6930p looks the part of a premium business notebook, and it's extra durable, too. In addition to its design, we like its blazing performance, powerful discrete graphics, security features, and bright, versatile display.
Summary: The 6930P's size makes it both comfortable to use, as well as easy to transport, and users who require a lot of running time away from an outlet will appreciate the option for a larger second battery.
Pros: Good battery life, sturdy build, fast hard drive, keyboard light, two navigation devices
Cons: Lid's latch can be difficult to use, very long set up time, no 'Sleep-and-Charge'-like ports
Excerpt: HP's EliteBook 6930p is clearly a business laptop, but it's an attractive one, partly thanks to its brushed metal lid. It's aimed squarely at business users so it has a smartcard slot and, unusually, a webcam that can also be used to scan and digitise your business cards.
Summary: Here at Stuff towers we like our tech be fun, with a strong sprinkling of gadget joy. But sometimes the world and its ‘professionlism’ insists that we pack a sensible, business laptop with a great spec sheet. A laptop like HP’s EliteBook 6930p.
