Review HP EliteBook 6930p Notebook



Very stable and robust case; Excellent haptics thanks to the high quality materials; Three year guarantee ex works; UMTS available; Excellent keyboard and touchpad; Good office performance; Quiet office use and low heating up; Good battery life...

Shaky battery; Closing mechanism needs getting used to; No digital picture output on the device itself; Unergonomic trackpoint; Below average colour production of the display, low contrast and illumination

A high-quality display. The alternative LED panel unfortunately only offers standard WXGA resolution. The WXGA+ panel with a resolution of 1440x900 could be exciting for the purpose of a better summary.

HP Elitebook 6930p


HP has always had a knack for knowing the requirements of different segments of users, minute enhancements always make all the difference in the overpopulated world of notebooks. Their Elitebook series, meant for the serious business person, has...

At Rs. 95,000, this laptop is a serious performer, with huge reliability aspects. But yet, value for money? Not so much. Because the battery is not so strong, at least in our model. You can however get an external battery of 6 cells for a slight cost,...

HP EliteBook 6930p (Long Lasting Battery)


This first-class business notebook returns with 14 hours of battery life—but considerably more heft.

If all-day endurance is what you’re looking for, the HP EliteBook 6930p will satisfy with an unprecedented 14 hours of battery life, partly thanks to a blazing Intel SSD. However, it’s heavier and clumsier, and its performance scores are lower than...

WARNING - Died in less than one year - low usage - POOR SUPPORT


If you see a reply to this post that states they want to help resolve this issue, don't believe it. I have already tried to contact them multiple times over the last two weeks and they (MetroPC) will not reply.


Laptop died in less than one year. Early on, battery died and they had to send a replacement. This laptop was only used 1-2 times per month ; Support by MetroPC was slow but ok at first. Now their support has turned to dreadful and nonexistent. No...

Win 7 Home Premium with a Win 7 Pro key


Gave 4 eggs because of 4GB memory instead of 2GB & wrong OS version . But I have OEM versions of Windows 7 pro 64 bit so was able to install and get working. Power adapter gets burning hot after about 4 hours so, I will have to watch that.

Dual core & came with 4 GB instead of 2 GB. Screen is bright and all controls work well. Biometric fingerprint reader (I still need to load driver but I will use it). WiFi worked without loading driver from HP website

System was setup with Windows 7 Home Premium an The laptop only had Windows 7 Pro Key included. Whoever set this machine up has no clue how product keys work

Consumer review by:

good laptop -- well built, but heavy


extremely well built to withstand business use, with a metal chassis, but the price for this is that it is heavier than most consumer laptops ; Suggest you reinstall the 64bit version of windows that is included on the disks instead of the 32 bit...

Didn't have webcam feature that I thought was standard on this elitebook model. It turns out I was wrong -- it was an option, and these refurbs don't have it. Everything else works great though ; Suggest charging the battery and running the laptop...

Better than Expected


Everything was better than expected. I use it every day to tune motorcycles on a dyno. Gets massive abuse. Still works perfect
