MobileMark 2007 is a test that loads the system up with tasks and gives a direct score for battery life. For the m15X, I used the video task to get the runtime for the battery. The battery in the gaming rig lasted only 1 hour and 50 minutes from a full charge.
You are probably cringing at that score when some notebooks can run for four times that long. But those other notebooks don't offer the phenomenal gaming performance of the m15x. When you buy any gaming laptop, battery life is far from the top priority.

The first of the real world tests for the m15x is our iTunes encoding test. I took a set of 12 MP3 tracks and using the latest version of iTunes encoded them all to AAC format. The tracks used in this test are the same tracks we use for all of our notebook reviews, allowing direct comparison of performance.
Using a stopwatch, the m15x encoded all of our test tracks in a blazing 4 minutes and 11 seconds. That is by far the best score to date for our iTunes test.

The final benchmark for the m15x makes use of Windows Media Encoder. We use the same video file for all of our WME tests and use the same version of the free WME application to perform the tests, allowing direct comparison between computers.
The m15x was able to encode our test file in 5 minutes and 52 seconds, the fastest time for a notebook that has passed through our labs so far.
