HP's New Elitebook has a 32 Hour Battery

HP's New Elitebook has a 32 Hour Battery
 
 

Up to this point, any laptop that could break ten or eleven hours of functional battery life has seemed pretty impressive. But HP just shook things up. Their EliteBook 8460p is the new word in longevity. This business laptop has a Sandy Bridge processor and a full LED-backlit 14" or 15.6" display. Despite these features, it can last up to thirty-two freaking hours on a single charge.

In order to see that sort of staying power, you'll need to add a 160 GB SSD and ultra-extended life battery to the $99 base price. All p-series notebooks meet military specs, and they are built with tough aluminum alloy hinges and cast titanium-alloy latches. The chassis is a magnesium, aluminum alloy, plus a "double-shot" rubber frame for shock-absorption.

These new EliteBooks are built to be extremely moddable. The back plate has a switch that allows you to swap out hard drives or memory. There are also quick-access buttons on the keyboard for functions like WiFi and mute.

At 4.56 or 6.1 pounds, the p-series EliteBooks are basically the business traveller's perfect companion. Tired of running dry on long flights or airport terminals with a severe lack of plugs? Thirty two hours of battery life is enough to get you from Iowa to Shenzhen, China without so much as a top-off. And the mil-spec durability is just icing on the cake.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
