Re: Actual Battery Time? - 03-30-2009, 07:05 PM
I ran the same test again last night, this time without the visualizer running, & got the same results: about 2:45 of actual time.
On the 1st test MenuMeters showed the processor at about 50% (it fluctuated up & down about 5%).
Without the visualizer it ran at about 20-25%.
On my old desktop Mac, a 400GHz Sawtooth, iTunes & the visualizer maxxed the processor out at 100%.
iTunes & the visualizer on my 2GHz Mac mini uses about 60% of the 2 cores.
