Have you ever imagined a notebook that can withstand dust, vibration, altitude, and high temperature while remaining connected anywhere and anytime? HP has designed precisely that for the style-conscious corporate mobile professional.
The series of six business notebooks - 2530p, 2730pm 6930p, 8530p, 8730 w and 8530w - encompassing the professional (p) and mobile workstation (w) class notebook series brings alive a rare combination of classy minimalist design and maximum durability.
The shock-resistant hard drive and spill resistant keyboards helps protect confidential data parked in the notebooks against bumps, drops and spills. Frequent travellers can take advantage of the optional ultra slim battery accessory that offers a total of 15 hours of battery life.
The brushed anodised aluminium casing, HP Duracase is combined with magnesium alloy chassis to ensure the notebook preserves its sleek exterior for a long time. The series incorporates Intel Core 2 Duo mobile processors, solid state hard drives and the latest Qualcomm's Gobi technology.
Even the stand is ergonomically designed to encourage better seating posture by elevating the notebook to eye-level. Other innovations include the HP QuickLook2 software, which provides access to email, calendar, task and contact information within seconds, at the touch of a button. The HP SpareKey feature addresses the issue of forgotten passwords by using a sequence of three predetermined personal identification questions to gain immediate entry into the system.
The HP EliteBook series incorporates Intel Core 2 Duo mobile processors, solid-state hard drives and the latest Qualcomm's Gobi technology to provide customers with greater choice of mobile operators and increased international roaming capabilities.
The HP DuraKeys, a clear coating on the notebook keyboard, makes it 50 times more resistant to wear and tear. To ensure reliability and ruggedness, these notebooks undergo more than 95,000 hours of testing and a 1,000-mile simulation of the vibrations.
All HP business notebooks are also designed with the environment in mind, with energy-efficient features, select materials for easier recycling and lower levels of environmentally-unfriendly substances.
This is a very well-built notebook and weighs 2.1kg. And you can carry it around with you everywhere by the solid clasp that holds the clamshell closed in your bag.
The EliteBook 6930p measures 33.1cm wide by 24.3cm deep and is 3.1cm thick at its maximum. It's not exactly small with its 14.1in. screen.
Given all that they provide and the care HP has taken for the minutest details, these notebooks with a price tag of between Rs 75,000 to Rs one lakh plus taxes are a unique blend of style with rugged, high-power business computing.
