Sony VAIO VGN-NS30E/S – 15.4in Laptop Review - Battery Performance Review

As we can see in both the Productivity and Reader benchmarks, the processor and chipset upgrades over the NS20 result in an average of 15mins longer battery life.

A result of just less than five hours is excellent for this price-class and form factor.

In DVD playback the cheaper NS20 closes the gap, leaving its more expensive sibling with a measly five minutes of headway.
