Hewlett-Packard today announced a specially configured version of its EliteBook 6930p notebook the company claims has a 24-hour battery life. In order to achieve the extended run, the notebook makes use of several features starting with a 12-cell lithium ion battery along with a solid-state drive in place of a traditional hard drive. In addition, HP will also offer an optional 14.1 inch LED that can extend battery life by an additional 20 percent. The downside to the larger battery is the additional 1.8 pounds to the notebook's weight.
