HP's latest notebook rigged with optional ultra-capacity battery and other settings will run for 24 hours on one time battery charge
HP has announced that their new EliteBook 6930p rigged with optional ultra-capacity battery and other settings will make it run for 24 hours on one time battery charge.
Notebook battery life is the biggest hindrance for the users on the move. What would one need for that? The ultra-capacity battery? HP recommends Windows XP with latest Intel graphics drivers and a special "HP BIOS". Also the system should be running HP Illumi-Lite LED display and Intel's new 80GB SSD.
HP boasts of new 12-cell ultra-capacity battery that weighs 0.8 kgs only. Battery life has been boosted by four hours by HP Illumi-Lite LED display which will be launched in October. Intel's new SSD also claims to improve battery life by seven per cent as compared to traditional hard drives.
HP claims the all-day runtime using industry standard benchmark though which remains unspecified. No details about variation in results whether the configuration is suitable for using processor hungry applications.
Priced at $189, the 12-cell battery pack will certainly last about 24 hours when used with tweaked settings on Windows XP. But what about using the same with other HP notebooks with Windows Vista? Well, HP still has to answer that one!
