HP specs a 24 hour EliteBook, Dell's 19 hour mark hangs its head in shame

Workaholics take note: HP just did the impossible, cramming 24 hours of battery into a laptop, and destroying Dell's fresh 19 hour record in the process. The HP EliteBook 6930p combines advances such as an LED backlit display and Intel's 80GB SSD, a new HP BIOS and Intel graphics driver, and of course an "Ultra Capacity Battery" -- a 12-cell, $189 option, which weighs in at a hefty 1.77 pounds -- for a net approximate 24 hours of work time. The standard 6930p only weighs 4.7 pounds, though, so you're not looking at a backbreaker, and configurations start at $1,199 without SSD.
