Benchmarks: MobileMark2005, Winstone 2004, Winbench 99

MobileMark 2005 Source: Bapco

MobileMark 2005 is BAPCo's latest revision of their laptop battery testing suite. It tests battery life under a variety of situations including DVD playback and wireless Internet usage. Battery life is recorded in minutes for each test. *The DVD BatteryMark was conducted with the screen at full brightness. **The wireless BatteryMark test was conducted with the screen at default brightness

The Acer Ferrari 4005 WLMi showed unremarkable but acceptable battery life. The laptop managed just over two hours of DVD playback with the screen at full brightness, and a decent 2 hours and 48 minutes of wireless usage with the screen at default brightness for battery power.

Winstone 2004 Source: Zdnet

Business Winstone 2004 is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running today's top-selling Windows-based 32-bit applications on Windows XP. Business Winstone doesn't mimic what these packages do; it runs real applications through a series of scripted activities and uses the time a PC takes to complete those activities to produce its performance scores.

Content Creation Winstone 2004 is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running top, Windows-based, 32-bit, content creation applications on Windows XP.

The 2GHz AMD Turion64 ML-37 processor and 1GB of DDR-333 memory prove to be advantages for the Acer Ferrari 4005 WLMi here, it pushes past the Intel Centrino-based laptop by a fair margin.

The Acer Ferrari 4005 WLMi obviously benefits from its faster 5400 RPM hard drive. Surprisingly, the Centrino-based Gigabyte n512 notebook managed to best the faster Ferrari on one of the 2D benchmarks here.
