Digital Life writes: "Recently, sales of notebook computers outstripped desktop computers for the first time. It seems that at home, the office and school, we are increasingly seeking portability in our computers. HP's EliteBook 6930p is one such example, solid without resembling a piece of military equipment.
Weighing in at just over two kilograms, the 6930p's casing is made of aluminium, plastic and magnesium. The external aluminium panels are scratch-resistant, with the entire unit meeting the MIL-STD 810F, ensuring it can operate reliably at extreme temperatures and withstand vibration and high humidity. The hard drive is shock-resistant."
