Asus Eee PC 701 Drains like hell at full speed
There has been so many reviews about Asus Eee PC, particularly the Asus Eee PC 701 since it’s the first ever netbook I know to come out and show off. I had mine for almost a year now but have not been able to test it at full speed.
I have been using my Eee PC at it’s most conservative setting @ 630 Mhz. It’s on Ubuntu most of the time, but when it got a chance to try Windows XP, I was able to set it at full speed using the eeectl application. Fan is set to automatic so it sets itself to its most comfortable preference.
Heck I was surprised, my battery drained in just 1 hour and 15 minutes, while I was doing nothing too heavy for Eee PC like just surfing blogs and typing comments every once in a while. The other day, I was able to watch 2 movies with 1:40 mins each at 630 Mhz, and I still got some spare power on my battery for shutting down and booting up again. I have 4400 mAh battery, by the way.
Well, I’m not sure if this is normal or something wrong is happening. I would also want to post a screenshot of the battery meter but I don’t know how to do it while it’s 0%.
