The future of Windows 10 laptops will be powered by Qualcomm's new Snapdragon-powered laptops, ushering an always-on, always-connected PC future.



In the first video, Qualcomm shows off the truly incredible battery life of their Snapdragon-powered Windows 10 PCs. The what looks to be a Dell XPS 15 on the left can only handle 13 hours, while Qualcomm throws the gauntlet down and rides right up to just under 22 hours of battery life.



The next video has super-fast instant-on abilities thanks to Snapdragon, it's truly instant-on. Dell on the other hand takes a ridiculous amount of time in comparison.



Lastly, Qualcomm shows that Windows on Snapdragon runs way cooler than traditional laptops. There's only a smidgen of heat from the Snapdragon side of things, while heat becomes a problem on Dell XPS laptop. With this cooler-operating temperature, performance isn't throttled on Snapdragon, with the Dell system really dropping down in frames.
