Currently, we have 30mb from Fujitsu and IBM.
The power reqs for these 30mb, 4200rpm, 2mb buffer are:
4.5w powerup, 2.3w I/O, .65w idle
The IBM 60mb, 5400rpm, 8mb buffer disks I'm using for the upgrade are :
5.0w powerup, 2.6w I/O, .85w idle
What impact on battery life can we expect
without changing any Windows power meter settings...
