The final graphics subsystem benchmark doesn’t reveal a definite winner. The resolutions are not very high, so this test is rather about overall system performance. We can summarize the graphics tests like this: notwithstanding its very small size, the ASUS W7J is quite capable of running most of today’s 3D games at an acceptable speed.

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 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)

It’s just as we forecast in the Introduction. The ASUS W7J is not a long-liver away from the wall outlet because its miniature case conceals an advanced and power-hungry configuration typical rather of full-size notebooks. The average time of autonomous operation is two hours, which is short, especially considering the product class the notebook belongs to.

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