Battery Performance: MobileMark 2007
Rounding out our testing, we ran MobileMark 2007 to assess the notebook's overall battery life while running a series of applications through a testing script.
We are using the standard benchmark settings from Bapco, along with a few other minor system tweaks. The screensaver was disabled and the volume was set at approximately 20%.
MobileMark 2007 utilizes the following applications
* Adobe Acrobat Reader 7.0
* Adobe Illustrator CS2
* Adobe Photoshop CS2
* Apple QuickTime 7.1
* Intervideo WinDVD 8
* Macromedia Flash 8
* Microsoft Office 2003 Pro
* Microsoft Project 2003
* Winzip 10.0
For what can be considered a desktop replacement notebok, the Asus C90S offered good battery performing, delivering 102 minutes of life before becoming completely drained. When compared to the Dell XPS M1730, the ASUS C90S delivered 25 minutes more battery life overall and almost hit the 2 hour mark.
