    The 14.1" HP Compaq 6910p is one of the latest professional line portable business notebooks currently being offered by HP. The 6910p is much like the smaller 12.1" screen HP 2510p we recently reviewed in terms of looks, but of course this larger notebook packs more power. The 6910p starts at a reasonable price of $1,199 with a basic configuration that includes the Intel Core 2 Duo (Santa Rosa) processor.

    Another good review for an excellent business notebook which has been underrated.

    I can't help but notice that the keyboard photo is one of the 6515b instead of the 6910p. Perhaps you got them mixed up?

    Nice review. Bit weird that HP chose PCMCIA over Expresscard. I mean, it's 2007 now, not 2004 or 2005.

    A helpful review.

    The hardware spec is almost the same as my Zepto 6024W but the battery time is significantly better.

    Can you check that thickness? 1.1" is quite thin. The thickness scales at around 1.4" on the photos of the side ports. Also, how big and heavy is the PSU - what's the travel weight?

    However, i won't be queueing up to buy one of these in UK. They seem to be using Lenovo's exchange rate.

    Wow, nice catch, that is the wrong image and it did get mixed up. I'll be fixing that here now...

    Yea, even Lenovo switched to Express Card now, so I see no reason why HP didn't.

    Lenovo`s Thinkpad T60 and T61 offerings have both unless you choose to include a SD card reader.
    The decision to still have the old PCMCIA is probably because of its business-orientation. As I've heard, most businesses still use old proven PCMCIA cards, so it would be the logical choice to include PCMCIA.
    Besides Dell follows the same route to day. D630 has only PCMCIA, D830 has both. Business-oriented Vostros have ExpressCard because they are based on consumer Inspirons.

    Thing is, this has almost everything you'd want in a PCMCIA built in. The only thing I can think of is eSata. And PCMCIA does not enough bandwith for 2 full eSATA ports. And definitly not enough for RAID.

    i can't believe this has an ATI 2300
    isn't that just a rebadged 1300, which means it sucks

    Great review, thanks!

    Just curious, you pointed out that the 2510p and the 6910p both have rubberized display latches. Do you know if the 8510p/8510w models also have a rubberized latch? Because my nw8440's latch is simply hard plastic.

    Also, I've noticed on the 2510p and the 6910p that border around the hinges on the lid is black plastic, whereas on the 8510 and 8710 series, the "hinge border" on the lid is the same color. I wonder why?

    Either way, if I had to go to a 14.1" notebook, I would definitely take this model in a heartbeat, even though the graphics options are a bit lackluster for my taste (I'd definitely take the ATi Radeon X2300 option). All HP really needs to add now is an ExpressCard Slot and this would be just about perfect!
