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 massive EON17-S puts up respectable numbers in our battery life test, as well. While certainly not one of the most power efficient machines we've tested as you may expect, it manages to outperform some of the other systems to come through our lab and provides better performance at the same time.

When Origin sent me this machine, they thought I'd be a bit disappointed by the battery life presented. It's quite the contrary, actually. Instead of being an over glorified battery backup, the EON17-S could actually be used without a charger for a decent enough amount of time.
