Summary: my opinion f.w.i.w., first, you need to understand that i'm reviewing the machine...not the software. i see countless reviews that put down the machine because of o.s. problems... i run this machine with linux mint 13 (i'll throw up a screenshot), so i don't know what kind of experience you win users will go through. i bought my machine elsewhere (less money), but i can still give you a rundown about how i feel about it.
Cons: battery dead. contacted hp for their 60 day warranty. the laptop didnt have one after all. they are going by the s/n number on the laptop. so the odds are yours will be out of warrant as well. new egg came to rescue and offerd me a new battey....and a deal on an extended warraty ta boot!!!
Summary: If you are considering buying this notebook you need to know limitations are the hardware and the software. Hardware: I bought this notebook because I wanted a mirror image of the one given to me by my employer. What I found out is the one I purchased from Amazon (same model as my employer's laptop) DID NOT come with a built in webcam. Of course, my work around was to use an old webcam that I had resigned to the back on a drawer.
Summary: The company from which I purchased is not currently listing/offering this laptop. My order did not include Vista Business, but came with Vista Home Premium. It also had a bad/incomplete Installation Partition. However, the O/S did install enough to allow me to get onto the Internet, and download all the necessary drivers from the HP web site.
Very good, quick laptops... but take care of them.

Summary: After using one of these laptops at my workplace where I did IT work, I decided to get one and experiment with it. It runs Windows 7 very well and is pretty quick, too. I do recommend to anyone who gets one of these that they get more RAM for it though. I installed 4GB in mine and it made a huge difference in the speed. I only have one complaint about these laptops... The screen latches tend to become weak after constant use and eventually don't latch anymore.
Summary: The HP EliteBook 6930p is, I have to say is an okay tool for the average user. If, like me, you are a bit of a dunce when it comes to laptops , then I don't think you will be disappointed. The look and feel is solid and being brushed chrome adds to the quality feel of the product. The screen s a good size and provides very easy vision of your work or DVDs.
Pros: Quality Feel, good key touch, does what you need it to do
Summary: Introduction: Within the first few weeks of starting my current job, I was handed a brand new Elitebook 6930p by my manager. Although I've never been a fan of HP computers or equipment, I was quite happy to recieve this neatly packaged little laptop. To be honest, it wouldn't have been my first choice as there are plenty of other laptops out there which offer the same performance for a lot less cost.
Pros: Compact, Aesthetically pleasing, Some cool touches and features...
Cons: Build-quality issues with the keyboard and charger.
HP Elitebook 6930p: Would not be my first choice !!
22 February 2011
Summary: I was supplied this laptop by the company I work for over a year ago due to the fact i am on the road alot....I would like to say it is light and slimline but carting it around on my sholder for long periods of time tells me otherwise Its bulky and heavy compared to other models out there.
HP Elitebook 6930p: A mid-range spec laptop with a high end price
31 July 2009
Summary: I've owned a few high spec laptops over the last 4/5 years including a small Sony Vaio, Dell M1330 and currently the new MacBook Pro. The Elitebook is my work laptop, so it gets a lot more abuse and use than my personal machines. The build quality from HP is very solid made up of a mixture of plastic and brushed aluminium. This mix of materials also creates a stylish look and feel about the machine.
