System specifications dump
Using the balanced productivity/entertainment setting on PowerMark, we got a result of 3 hours and 16 minutes, which is within range of most Ultrabooks that we've encountered.
The included Samsung 830 128GB SSD performed 50% below expectations on the reads, and we did check whether SATA 3.0 6Gb/s was negotiated at both ends of the drive and controller. None of our tests later in this review is storage I/O bound.
