With the relatively low resolution of the smaller 14-inch LCD on the Timeline, 3DMark Vantage refused to run. For this review I will be testing the Timeline with PCMark Vantage, iTunes encoding, movie encoding and Battery Eater Pro. First up is PCMark Vantage.
Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0.0

For the iTunes encoding test I used iTunes to encode my STP album from MP3 to AAC format. I timed the process with a stopwatch to get the score. Check out the chart below to see the time for the Aspire Timeline and compare it to the other notebooks I have reviewed.

I used WME to encode the HD format Wonder of Flight video to DVD quality video and CD quality audio for playback on a PC. Check out the screen shot and chart below for the results of the test.
Battery Eater Pro
Version and / or Patch Used: 2.70

To test the battery life of the Timeline notebook I will be using Battery Eater Pro. Battery Eater puts more of a strain on the battery of a notebook than real world usage, so your battery life may be better than the time Battery Eater gives. Check out the chart below for the battery life of the Timeline notebook.
