Excerpt: The HP EliteBook 6930p features a 24 hour battery life making it last longer than any laptop around. It's perfect for taking on long trips when charge points might be scarce. On top of the extra long battery life is a 14.1-inch LED display along with an 80GB solid state drive making it incredibly durable.
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.
Pros: Unprecedented 14 hours of battery life with extended battery, Strong overall performance, Fast solid state drive, Durable elegant design,
Cons: Heavy with extra battery, Weak graphics performance,
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. We also appreciate the generous assortment of software, especially QuickLook 2. This is the best bang-for-your-buck business notebook we’ve tested.
Pros: Elegant business-rugged design, Fast performance, Bright display with good viewing angles, E-mail and calender access without booting Windows,
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. We don't particularly like its latch system, nor the prolonged set up time, and we wish HP would also implement 'Sleep-and-Charge'-like USB 2.0 ports.
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
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. It may look bland, but as a workhorse this HP is as close to perfect as you can currently get.

Excerpt: A wag on the www.pcauthority.com.au forums recently opined that PC Authority can find fault with any product. There's a grain of truth to that: how many products do you know of that are truly perfect? Of course, we're evaluating the products we test for many different types of people, and given differences of need and fashion, no product can be all things to all people. Even with that in mind, however, the EliteBook 6930p is near-perfect for business laptop users.
Excerpt: Let’s take a moment and reminisce about the era of compact point & shoot cameras and the years when the only relevant number was the amount of megapixels and when only some of the enthusiasts care... Sony Mobile started a new chapter of their smartphone design with Xperia Z. The refreshment was very welcome and Sony sold a large amount of smartphones since then, and Xperia Z, as a pioneer in this ...
