Give HP kudos for achieving what is likely a laptop battery life record. Its just-announced business-oriented HP EliteBook 8460p laptop can achieve 32 hours in between charges provided you do a few things: pick up the accompanying HP BB09 ultra-extended life notebook battery, download the latest Intel graphics driver and HP BIOS (ie. startup software), and get the Intel flash memory solid state drive option. Obviously, it'll cost more, and the battery will bring the laptop's weight to a hair under 6 lbs., but for more than a day's worth of juice, road warriors might argue that's a fair trade.
