Unhappy RunCore SSD and Battery Life? - 12-19-2008, 04:24 PM

Now that the RunCore drives are shipping, does anybody have any numbers on the effect of a larger SSD and battery life? I'm change from the Dell Supplied 16Gig to a 64Gig RunCore. Will my battery life suffer much? Thanks.

I have the 32GB runcore ssd install and running Vista. I was running skype the whole time with a fully charged battery and it lasted me about 2 hours and 45 min before reaching 20% and telling me to plug in my laptop.

Yeah, my battery life seems unchanged. In electronics, better performance and more capacity usually come from a die shrink, and a die shrink often lowers power consumption.
