What does "Blazing Fast Performance" do? I thought that the last one, that they sold to me, had that.

They should only be allowed to benchmark these products based on how much watts it costs to perform a particular task. The actual task duration does not matter, as long as it is completed within a particular user experience tolerance.

Do you want to account for how many times you had to punch the keyboard to get this idea formulated? And how will it compare to the time that you simply wasted? If any good, that's your personal benchmark of efficiency ;) And the effect is the same - nobody really cares.

No. For example, the benchmark should should play a 720p video @ 25fps for 2 hours and measure how much power was consumed. Another should should render a 3D scene @ 60fps for 2 hours and measure how much power was consumed. If it can't do the 3D scene @ 60fps, then it is no use for such a task, which is fine if all you want to do is play FaceBook all day.
