Pretty much the expected results here. The N512 turns out middle-of-the-road numbers in this demanding benchmark, grabbing an overall result in Sysmark 2004 of 130 points. While not a match for a modern desktop system, the Gigabyte G-MAX N512 Dothan-based notebook is certainly going to be a capable content-creation tools, as these Sysmark benchmarks indicate.

MobileMark 2002 is a notebook computer benchmark program for mobile computers running Windows XP and Windows 2000. The primary purpose of this benchmark is to measure how long a mobile computer can run on a single battery charge. What makes MobileMark 2002 unique is that it measures system performance while the battery is discharging, and the benchmark reports both a performance score and a battery run time.

Mobilemark is designed to measure a notebook's battery life in minutes by running a calculated series of office tests and tasks simulating a normal workload until the battery runs flat. The G-MAX N512 turned in a decent result here, a shade under four hours. We've seen better, but we've certainly seen worse.
