Battery life of a 15inch laptop is very important, especially if you are a business man and frequently checking email and working in Microsoft Office.
To test the battery today we put the machine through two sets of real world situations. One as a gamer on the move, who wants to play games on a train journey or bus with two thirds screen brightness. Secondly as a business man, using the machine for productivity with wireless enabled and balanced power settings with a mid way brightness setting.
We managed to get over 4 hours out of the machine when used in the less demanding environment which impressed us. As a gaming machine it delivered just under 2 hours, which again is actually rather good. MSI’s choice of battery certains gets some kudos from us.
