Benchmarks

 

Now it's time to put the M1022 through our battery of netbook benchmarks. Today we will be using our iTunes encoding test, our movie encoding test and Battery Eater Pro. As you will soon see, the M1022 has very nice performance and found itself very close to the SSD equipped OCZ Neutrino I reviewed a while back in performance.

 

Battery Eater Pro

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 2.70

The first test up is Battery Eater Pro. The M1022 has fantastic battery life and is the longest lasting machine we have ever tested. If you want to be able to go for hours on the road, the M1022 is a great machine for the job. Remember, real world results will vary. Check out the graphic below for the battery life score and comparison.

Next up is our iTunes encoding test. For this benchmark I used my Stone Temple Pilots Core album in MP3 format, encoded the tracks to AAC using iTunes and timed the process with a stopwatch. See the chart below for the scores.

The final netbook benchmark is our movie encoding test. For this test I used Windows Media Encoder to turn the 1080p Wonder of Flight video into a DVD quality file suitable for streaming. See the chart below for the test results.

    Response:
    Nice review, but you guys missed out on the best features: 1. Push the right click button when the system is off and those 6 LEDs show you how much battery you have left. 2. The touch pad may be small, but it uses an ELan tech smart mousepad syste
