Web Surfing Test Shows SSDs Better for Battery Life

Avram Piltch at Laptop Magazine disputes Tom’s Hardware’s findings regarding SSD drives and battery life:

Our conclusion is that, in real-world use, SSDs offer a small improvement in battery life. While this tiny improvement may not be enough to sell users on SSDs as power-saving devices, it is certainly enough to say that upgrading to SSD will not cost you any battery life and may provide you with more productive minutes as you wait shorter periods of time for programs to load or for your system to boot.
