No doubt you’re wondering what impact these superb graphics have on battery life but we’ve got a surprise for you. Both laptops use the same 4400mAh Li-Ion battery, but the 8800M GTX delivers far better battery life than the 7950 Go. We tested by running a loop of PCMark Vantage until the battery died so the graphics weren’t working especially hard so we can only conclude that the 8800M is far more efficient at gating and shutting down those parts of the chip that aren’t required at a given moment.

The cooling fans make their presence felt in fits and bursts when you’re performing regular Windows duties but that’s as bad as it gets. During an intensive gaming session the fans don’t get any noisier and the underside of the laptop remains cool to the touch which came as a very pleasant surprise.
