The final gaming test agrees with the previous ones. The TravelMate 6463WLMi may be used to run 3D games, yet its graphics performance is rather low in comparison with most other notebooks.
The notebook’s battery life was measured with Battery Eater Pro 2.60. The program had a glitch identifying the charge level:
The test was performed at the maximum screen brightness in the following modes:
- Classic (the system bears the maximum 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)
Two hours and 18 minutes is not quite what we might expect from a notebook with that configuration. Despite all the power-saving techniques, the battery charge gets eaten up very quickly. So, the TravelMate 6463WLMi is likely to be used stationary most of the time.
Here are the battery discharge diagrams for the different operation modes.
