Battery Info & Performance
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 2002 utilizes the following applications:
- Microsoft Word 2002

The white papers for MobileMark are available on Bapco's website should you want to read up on how this benchmark works. In the graph above, higher scores equal better performance.
With the standard 4 cell battery, the 700m clocks in at 2 hours and 31 minutes. We didn't have the opportunity to test the Dell 700m with its 8 cell battery, but based on our personal experience, you are looking at over 5 hours of computer usage.
Charge time for the battery from 0% to 100% is as follows (real world numbers, not estimates):
- 4 cell primary - 1 hour and 37 minutes
