Apple 2010 MacBook Pro 15″ Notebook gets its energy efficiency on

Computer manufacturers didn’t much care for the amount of power their systems would drain, even in the mobiles space, but given the amount of competition there is out there some extra added battery life is likely to entice people to their products.

The Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch (2010) notebook has some nice tricks up its sleeve that give it quite a bit of an advantage on the battery life front. AnandTech does the testing:

For the most part, our conclusions about the 2010 15-inch Macbook Pro remain true. If you’re using an older MacBook Pro, the upgrade is well worth it. You’ll see a sizable performance boost and an increase in battery life as well. It’s only compared to the previous generation unibody MacBook Pro that you’ll find the upgrade tougher to justify. Not to mention the finicky switchable graphics and potentially more power hungry CPU can make real world battery life closer to the 4 – 6 hour range rather than the almost guaranteed 5+ hours you’d see on the previous generation.

Well that seems to settle it, at least until you’re bored of being productive and fire up your favorite game.
