Overall storage score for our Laptop Ultrathin came in just over 2000 at 2005 marks.
In WoW the Ultrathin was capable of 137.5 seconds, very close to the WD Blue and Momentus Thin.
Battlefield 3 had the WD Blue slightly quicker than our Ultrathin, which sits at 365.5 seconds.
Utilizing Photoshop under light use, the Ultrathin comes in at 243.6 seconds.
A heavy use scenario allows for the Momentus Thin and our sample of the Laptop Ultrathin to come within three seconds of each other.
The Excel application trace has our drive at 27.4 seconds, again very close to the WD Blue and older Momentus Thin.
The PowerPoint trace has our Laptop Ultrathin tucked in at 28 seconds.
Lastly, the Microsoft Word application trace allows the Laptop Ultrathin to be slightly quicker than the Momentus Thin and just behind the WD Blue.
