Energy, Battery Life, And Efficiency
Moderate power consumption is mandatory for mobility, since large batteries and oversized heat sinks contribute to both size and weight. The Eon11-S has an exceptionally low power profile, and the scaling of these graphs makes it pretty clear that a number of components play important roles in keeping energy use low on the Origin PC configuration.
The Eon11-S’s compact chassis demands a smaller and lower-capacity battery compared to the Racer 2.0. But because its power consumption is so low, it's able to deliver longer battery life.
Battery Eater Pro represents a distinctly synthetic test, so we also wanted to see how long each of these gaming-oriented notebooks could sustain real-world 3D workloads before running out of juice. The Eon11-S also tops our records there, running Battlefield 3 for 50 minutes, beating the GeForce GTX 660M-equipped Racer 2.0 by seven minutes, and doubling the game time afforded to the Racer 2.0’s battery by Nvidia's GeForce GTX 675M.
Efficiency compares work to energy, and we use a simple chart of performance averages to gauge how much work each of these systems achieves. The mid-power, mid-sized Racer 2.0 with GeForce GTX 660M graphics sets the baseline.
A 28% power savings sounds like a great tradeoff for a 9% performance loss, so long as that 9% doesn't keep the system from being fast enough to satisfy its target audience. The Eon11-S is a gaming notebook, after all, and we’ll discuss how it fits in that role on the next page.

It's quite the potent little power house isn't it.Reply
I can bet you one thing though the pricing won't be as potent lol.
This is based on the Clevo W110ER. What other Barebones can go as powerful as such in a small package.Reply
joytech22It's quite the potent little power house isn't it.I can bet you one thing though the pricing won't be as potent lol.It's based off a Clevo barebones, so it's the same as the Sager NP6110 which starts at $899Reply
I just wish they'd offer a screen better than 1366x768 (at least 1440x900 or such)
I have a first gen corei3 notebook. It runs fine, but battery isnt too great.Reply
But i wont be upgrading to anything till haswell is released.
Too bad they don't offer the GT650M 1GB GDDR5 which faster than the DDR3 version.....Reply

There is a bios mod for some crazy OC on the GPU. Although you are right amuffin, the GDDR3 on the GT 650m is a let down. You can get the W150ER at similar price (also has a bios mod for OC) with GT 650m GDDR5 although it is a 15 inch (but 1080p screen).9538812 said:Too bad they don't offer the GT650M 1GB GDDR5 which faster than the DDR3 version.....
shame about the resolution but a 11 inch mobile gaming machine is pretty appealing to me. i could get a few sneaky rounds on BF3 whilst on the toilet at work....Reply
The thing Im the most pumped about is the windows 7 physical media.Reply
scan have a version in the UK.Reply
the scan version comes with the 2gb 650MReply
