To add to Carlos' comments, I think the combination of higher  
processor speed and higher memory bus speed (SDRAM vs. DDR) could at  
least double the load. If the battery is getting old, and you are  
doing deep discharge testing, that drop in runtime is well within the  
accuracy you can expect from a low-end UPS.
