PowerMark is a benchmark produced by Futuremark that simulates different usage scenarios in order to determine battery life. It loops these different scenarios infinitely until the battery hits 15% and then gives us an estimated battery life time. For our testing, we use all four different scenarios. These are video playback, gaming, web browsing and word processing.

 

The test is ran once with the computer's Power Options set to Balanced. You'll notice our graph has been cleared. PowerMark was updated to the latest version for testing, so we removed the test results created with a past version.

Futuremark's PowerMark shows that the TouchSmart 4 has impressive battery life, though it is bested by the more expensive Aspire S7. Keep in mind that the S7 featured an extended battery, which aided battery life.

 

Still, a battery life of 3 hours and 21 minutes in PowerMark is impressive.
