The race for all day computing is getting a little longer and personal as HP responds to Dell’s 19-hour battery life claim. According to their official 24-hour battery life website, HP has publicly proclaimed itself champion of achieving all-day computing. HP, the only top notebook manufacturer to not have a battery recall in 2006 and 2007, proudly claims that their EliteBook 6930p outlasts the Latitude E6400 by up to five hours.
HP will offer the EliteBook 6930p this fall as a special configuration including an 80 GB SSD, LED Display, and Ultra Capacity Battery for $1,816. The original power source is actually a 6 cell battery and the additional Ultra Capacity Battery provides enough juice to keep at it for a full 24 hours. HP has also included a handy chart that compares the 6930p with standard HD, 6930p with SSD, and E6400 with SSD. Another chart shows all of the battery life options of HP’s business series notebooks.
