HP EliteBook 6930p

Designed as a ruggedised machine for business users, the EliteBook 6930p offers a complete set of durability and reliability features. The notebook weighs 2.1kg and has a 14.1-inch diagonal widescreen display. Key to its durability is the HP DuraCase technology, which is an internal honeycomb pattern thermally bonded to anodised aluminium to provide an overall solid construction. Additionally, the 6930p features anodised aluminium palm-rest surface HP DuraFinish technology that makes it six times more scratch-resistant than previous notebooks. The notebook meets tough military standards (MILSTD 810F) for reliability and operation at extreme temperatures of over 60 degrees Celsius/140 degrees Fahrenheit and below -29C/-20F. Other key features include a shock-resistant hard drive and spill-resistant keyboard to help defend against bumps, drops and spills. The Elitebook is Energy Star qualified and comes with an optional, mercury-free Illumi-Lite LED display. It is available with either integrated Intel graphics or ATI Radeon HD3540 graphics with up to 320GB dedicated video memory.
