    does a higher TDP (thermal design power) consume more battery?

    Pablo GS


      Hello all,

      I´m trying to decide which latop to by between two ASUS which use respectively an Intel® Core™ i5-3210M (TDP 95W) and an Intel® Core™ i7-3610QM (TDP 45W). The price difference is 60€ what I can afford. But my fear is that with the i7 the battery could last very short times and maybe cause overheat. But I do not know because I do not understand really the real influence of the TDP in the equipment.

      Does somebody can help me? ;-)

      Thanks in advance and kind regards,

      Pablo
