HP Laptops Can Run 24 Hours, Without Power

Monday, September 15, 2008

You always need a power socket close enough to keep your laptop charged, if you are a power user. But what if your laptop can last a full 24 hours on a single charge? While most of the laptops offer two-three hours of backup, 24-hour mark is like powering it with nuclear fuel. No, HP is yet not using Uranium in its laptops, but yes, HP has 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 delivers 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.”

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. 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 four hours compared to traditional LCD displays, while the Intel SSD provides up to a seven per cent increase in battery life compared to traditional hard drives.

With up to 24 hours of battery life, business travellers 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. You can take more than 10 trips on the EuroStar train between London and Paris – approximately two hours, 15 minutes each direction – before recharging the battery. And, travel as a passenger by car from Maine to Florida using a notebook during the entire journey.

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, HP said. Internal HP benchmarks show overall performance boosts of up to 57 per cent 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.”

Well! the new HP EliteBook 6930p is a true companion for corporate road warriors. But Dell won't fall behind its competitor. They will soon be breaking this record -- so watch out for the battery warfare.
