Asus X83VM-X1 - Core 2 Duo P8400 2.26 GHz review: Asus X83VM-X1 - Core 2 Duo P8400 2.26 GHz

The Asus X83VB-X1 ran for 2 hours 39 minutes on CNET Labs' battery drain test, which is average for a laptop using a six-cell battery and not nearly as impressive as the 3 hours 31 minutes the HP Pavilion dv3510nr and its six-cell battery lasted on a single charge.

Asus backs the X83VB-X1 with a standard one-year parts-and-labor warranty.
