I have a M6400 and my power supply died.. I have a backup, but it is only 130W.. I swear my renders in MAX are much slower.. Does the computer throttle down the CPU if you don't have enough power?

Oh wait. It's a laptop.

From my experience, a lower wattage PSU on a laptop (as long as it has the same output) will:

Charge the laptop battery slower

can burn out very easily from being pushed beyond max load.
