Wattage - Desktop vs. Laptop
« on: March 26, 2017, 09:41:30 AM »
Can this be true? Just read in Reader's Digest that a laptop draws 15 to 25 watts while in use and a desktop draws 150 watts.

If so, a big difference on the hydro bill.

What about an iPad?  Only plugged in when charging.

Hmm ..I don't know what sort of Desktop computer is being monitored in that article but my set-up only consumes around 65 Watts of power (varies a little) when being actively used. This reading is the computer and monitor combined. The monitor is a 22" LCD one lit by LEDs. The reading is taken from a power meter that measures power being drawn from the mains socket, which I'd say is what really matters.
