Review HP EliteBook 6930p Notebook

 

EliteBook

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 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...

HP EliteBook 6930p

 

A solid business laptop with excellent battery life, the EliteBook 6930p won't disappoint, but there is little in this laptop to warrant the 'Elite' label.

Good build quality, Fingerprint reader, Centrino 2, Impressive battery life, 3 year warranty, Available with 64-bit Windows and/or 8GB of RAM

No DVI or HDMI port, Fingerprint reader unfortunately placed, No eSATA or USB charging with power off, Average value for money

HP's flagship business notebook offers an elegant, business-rugged design, fast performance, and smart software.

With its smooth metal styling, the HP EliteBook 6930p looks the part of a premium business notebook, and it’s extra durable, too. In addition to its design, we like its blazing performance, powerful discrete graphics, security features, and bright,...

A great laptop that successfully combines rugged and regular features

Decent protection ; Light ; Sturdy ; Performance

Not very rugged ; Some flex in keyboard

Expert review by:

Long battery life, perfect for business users.

 

The 6930P's size makes it both comfortable to use, as well as easy to transport, and users who require a lot of running time away from an outlet will appreciate the option for a larger second battery. We don't particularly like its latch system, nor...

Good battery life, sturdy build, fast hard drive, keyboard light, two navigation devices

Lid's latch can be difficult to use, very long set up time, no 'Sleep-and-Charge'-like ports

HP EliteBook 6930p notebook review

 

HP's EliteBook brand sits above the Compaq range, offering similar quality and usability, but adding premium materials, power and features to the list. The EliteBook 6930p is a compact and well-made choice, but has its work cut out tempting corporate...

Great battery life, good build quality, ergonomics

Pricey, not the most stylish, hazy screen

Offering power, comfort and quality, this is the ideal corporate machine on paper, but lacks the style and finesse to carry such a high price
