    rajhesh my laptop gets 3.5-4 hours of normal (aka non gaming) use. You can run the screen at 60,100,110,120 hz and even other intermediate values if you use other tools.
    Delta I did three almost complete battery rundowns while working around the house last week and I can assure you I was getting 2.5 hours battery tops. The CPU wasn't being used by any program other than my browser and the pdf reader. I switched to 60hz yesterday and this morning the battery was at 30% after almost 3 hours of use.

    Hmmm Thanks . .What are the tools ?
    Does reducing the framerate improve the battery life ??
    How's the rest of the performance ?? How's your experience with the laptop been
    Also do you carry it around often ? I will be taking it to college on some days.

    nvidia control panel -> change resolution -> customize -> create a custom refresh rate.
    I'm not sure about the second question, the point I'm making here is that 120hz certainly seems to draw a lot more power.
    The rest of the performance is just fine. the laptop is quiet, goes like hell with the 840 pro ssd and not a single game out there needs to be played below high settings if you know what you're tweaking. I have carried it around with a targus backpack for 18" laptops and it isn't a bother at all.
    I am currently looking for a black sticker to cover the glowy ROG logo on the back because it's a bit too cheesy.

    Same experience here, that is why I am happy with the fixed discrete GTX video card in the G750, it just works - all the time - without that switching frustration.

    Flea0, I wonder if setting it to 120hz triggers enabling the 3D emitter circuit. I would think you would have to have a 3D source running to enable it, but maybe it is triggered by the refresh setting.

    Like others I had my refresh rate set to 100hz (Chi Mei) and it didn't shorten battery life noticeably.

    BTW, would you please post a screen shot, or list of specs, from the AIDA64 Engineer Edition about the screen?

    Thanks Flea0!

    yeah my friend has the asus N56VZ with the 650M and he's having MASSIVE FPS issues with the Witcher 2, which I played on a 5830M... he's constantly juggling between drivers that make optimus happy and drivers that improve the discrete GPU performance...

    btw, here are my screen specs. I am experimenting with 96Hz for movies because some people suggested that using a multiple of the 24 fps they are shot at makes for smoother viewing.

    Thanks for the screen details Flea0

    That sounds like something to try, 24x4 = 96... any difference?

    I am looking forward to the Nvidia G-Sync coming out wide, only runs as fast of refresh as the computer can keep up:
