Default Battery meter for laptops

I don't know if someone has mentioned this, but did you guys know that when you play crysis on a laptop, there's a little battery meter indicator on screen?

Pretty freaking genius!

It'll be a pretty awesome laptop too if you can play crysis at decent settings

See my other thread.
All setting on medium with no tweaking of config files.

It's no match for an uber rig, but visuals hang in there nicely and it's pretty fluid. Only time I noticed stuttering was on the final battle on top of the carrier. I don't know where your bar for decent stands, but in my book I'm pretty happy with the result.

Yay for my laptop
