Because I work on it in 3DS, Unreal and Photoshop so ill be working for hours and we found that it is cheaper to run my laptop because I can run these programs in the laptops eco mode. It was costing close to 1 (I think) an hour on the meter to run the PC.

Either way I havent used the machine because the past few times ive used the PC there's been a big chun taken out of the leccy meter and the laptop doesnt take much.

I know what you mean, my laptop, clocked down to 900Mhz in eco-mode, is more than fast enough to run everything I use it for (intensive user - core2duo) and only uses 27w in eco-mode and 36w it full throttle.

When you consider the average PC uses 100w+, it makes a massive difference, the bigger the screen, the bigger and brighter the CCFL, hence the more power used to operate.

Wow, didn`t know that omg
I thought desktops used little power, SO does that mean (my last pc had a 600w power supply, normaly they are around 400w) it would have been using around 1:50 per hour? think

Afaik, the average price per Kw is ~13p, so even pulling 1000w it would only be 3.12 per day.

But over a month thats when you start to realise how much you can save - people change eletric supplier to save 20 - 50 per year, you can easily save in excess of that by using devices correctly.

Yeah and needing every penny I get means I don't get time to do work! (Or play UT3)

Do you think 100 is a bit steep I paid 140 for it this time last year?

Cheers

A power meter mate, Maplin and the like sell them.

Get your price for 1Kwh (1000w an hour) and hey presto you can work out from that.

A topic needs to be started for this disscussion because it does raise a good point.
