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.
Tests are ran twice, once with the computer's Power Options set to Balanced and another with the computer's Power options set to High Performance.
The Maingear laptop really provides pitiful battery life. It almost seems as though the battery included is an over glorified battery backup system. 1 hour and 40 minutes of battery life is absolutely atrocious for systems anymore.
With Ultrabooks being able to push six or more hours, a system like this should at least be able to achieve two or more hours. The battery life is this poor due to the inclusion of a 49Wh battery. Maingear really needs to get a larger battery for this system.
Without battery life, the portability aspect of going to a 15.6-inch system is completely lost. It's hard for me to recommend a system that can't last for at least two hours.
