HP Elitebook 6930p notebook
The White House Situation Room is actually made up of some large and some smaller conference rooms. During the Navy SEAL operation to kill Osama bin Laden, the president along with other prominent members of the Cabinet and armed forces collected in a smaller room to monitor the situation.
The laptops used in this picture are HP Elitebook 6930p notebooks, designed for enterprise and government use. Powered by an Intel Core 2 Duo processor and boasting up to 8 hours of battery life, this model is far from pretty but it's certainly tough, rugged and powerful enough to run an operation that led to the demise of the world's most wanted terrorist. So, 'not bad' then?
