Real battery life increase of SSD


Apr 19, 2009
So I have a Y550 with a 35W penryn T6500 and a momentus 5400 and a GT130m running Windows 7.

Im thinking of getting a P128 SSD and am wondering if I will really notice much in the way of better battery life. I ran across this review:,2305-15.html

That shows the power use of the momentus and it looks like its about 1 more watt during real use. So given I have a discrete video card and descent CPU, is 1 watt from my hard drive going to make much of a difference?
