Here, the graphics subsystem and the CPU of the Aspire 9303WSMi both contribute to the end result. The final graphics test agrees with the previous ones: notwithstanding its modest components, the Acer Aspire 9303WSMi can be used as a gaming notebook with good enough performance.
The notebook’s battery life was measured with Battery Eater Pro 2.60. The test was performed at the maximum screen brightness in the following modes:
- Classic (the system bears the highest and evenly distributed load)
- Reader’s test (the pages are scrolled through each 15 seconds)
- DVD mode (a DVD movie is launched in Battery Eater’s Idle test mode)
The Turion 64 platform consumes more power than the Napa in the Classic mode, although they are equals in the Reader’s mode. Well, two hours with something under high load is quite a good result for this modestly priced Turion 64-based solution.
Here are the battery discharge diagrams for the different operation modes.
