The notebook’s battery life was measured with Battery Eater Pro 2.60. The test refused to launch in the Classic mode until I chose High Performance instead of High Quality in the graphics driver settings – this is not the first time this thing happens with ATI-based notebooks from ASUS.

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 (the DVD movie was launched in Battery Eater’s Idle test mode)

The notebooks performed impressively well in this test, considering its advanced hardware configuration. You can watch a movie for over 2 hours at the max display brightness!

Here are the battery discharge diagrams for the different operation modes:
