Testing with MobileMark 2007

Rounding out our battery of tests, we ran MonileMark 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


The Lenovo Y530's 6 cell battery provided a respectable score of 152 minutes, or 2 hours and 32 Minutes, which should be more than enough to handle any web surfing or video viewing you might do while on battery power.
