HP today announced an unprecedented milestone in mobile computing: up to 24 hours of continuous notebook operation on a single battery charge. As measured by an industry-standard benchmark, the new HP EliteBook 6930p configured with an optional ultra-capacity battery delivered up to 24 hours of battery runtime.




“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.”

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.

With up to 24 hours of battery life, business travelers can easily:
  • Use an HP EliteBook 6930p continuously on the world’s longest scheduled commercial airline flight – linking Newark Liberty International Airport and Singapore Changi Airport – approximately 18 hours, 40 minutes.
  • Take more than 10 trips on the EuroStar train between London and Paris – approximately 2 hours, 15 minutes each direction – before recharging the battery.
  • Travel as a passenger by car from Maine to Florida using a notebook during the entire journey.

Solid state for mobile professionals
Inspired by aircraft construction and designed for style-conscious mobile professionals, HP EliteBook notebooks feature the latest mobile technologies.
In October, customers will be able to purchase an HP EliteBook with the new Intel high-performance SSDs – HP is a launch customer for new Intel X25-M and X18-M Mainstream SATA SSDs.

In addition to helping achieve outstanding battery life, these new Intel SSDs provide greater durability and reliability as well as faster system responsiveness. Internal HP benchmarks show overall performance boosts of up to 57 percent on industry benchmarks, and data transfer rates almost six times faster than traditional hard disks.

“Intel architected its new line of high-performance solid-state drives specifically to bring a new level of performance and reliability to the computing platform and make significant impact to the way people use their PCs,” said Randy Wilhelm, vice president and general manager, NAND Products Group, Intel. “The HP milestone is an example of the impact of this new level of performance that specifically delivers on lower power consumption for longer battery life.”

EliteBook 6930 for mobile professionals
The initial ENERGY STAR-qualified HP EliteBook 6930p configuration starts at only 4.7 pounds (2.1 kilograms). It features a 14.1-inch diagonal widescreen display and is available with an optional, mercury-free Illumi-Lite LED display.

The HP EliteBook 6930p is built for the corporate road warrior as it features a shock-resistant hard drive, enhanced display panel and spill-resistant keyboard to help defend data against bumps, drops and spills. It was designed to meet the tough MIL-STD 810F military-standard tests that measure levels of environmental reliability and operation at extreme temperatures, while withstanding vibration and high humidity.

The inner magnesium shell of the notebook’s HP DuraCase is equipped with a honeycomb pattern that is thermally bonded to anodized aluminum for a solid construction.
All HP notebooks are designed with the environment in mind, with energy-efficient features and select materials for easier recycling. For example, HP has set a goal to remove all mercury – a material commonly found in notebook screens – from its entire notebook line by the end of 2010.

Good job, now all we have to wait for is the processors to embrace 22nm so we can get some gaming soul in these machines!

The Industry standard bench was running at the same level as if the processor was idling?

Yea, is that idle or with minimal computing? Normal use? Heavy use? Thats kinda important.

Its still going to be longer then other notebooks but I don't think its 24 hours of normal use. Most likely just idle.

I though we had a TPU news post about how SSDs were using MORE power then a normal hard drive. Did Intel make some better ones with better power management? Hmm, I wonder if I could change out my 250g in my notebook with an SSD drive...that is if its better on power.

That article was from Toms hardware. It was because there was no idle state on the drives. Intel may have one, I donno.

Yea, but DEFINE use.

Were they letting it sit for 24hrs or were they listening to some music while typing a paper and also making a power point presentation?

The way they used it should be clear as day in order to really get a firm grasp on how long this lappy really lasts. Otherwise, I can say my Asus lappy lasts for four weeks on one charge. I just keep it in sleep mode.

Now make it smaller with the same battery! 10-12" screen and weight not more than 1-1,5kg. :)

Nice. Would make an ideal laptop for my dad. Not just because of the phenomenal battery life but because of ---
it features a shock-resistant hard drive, enhanced display panel and spill-resistant keyboard to help defend data against bumps, drops and spills
:D
Then he'll be safe, together with Vista UAC forced on...

I lol when I compare it to mine -- just 1 hour 10 minutes, and that's definitely not running a game!

There are mobile phones with 16 000 mAh battery too. They say that it is enough for 1 year operation. Actually it is dangerous to have such a device, cause it may explode.

This is really impressive, but the most impressive thing is that they did it and kept the weight down to 4.7 pounds. Makes my 6.6 pound 6-hour battery Dell seem like a behemoth.
