Well they announced a 40 percent increase in local
electricity rates here locally today.
Having said that..... what could a person do to either
buy or build a "green" low energy use PC? Something
that one would not be afraid to leave on 24/7?
Uses would be for typical Internet stuff as well as
word processing, maybe voice recognition software even.
What make a PC a power hog anyway? If you have a big
power supply say 500 watts.... but it is only being
used to power say 200 watts worth of equipment in the
box ...does that mean the PC is STIL using 500 watts
No. The 500W power supply is likely only good for 300W max, and will rarely go over 200W, assuming dismal efficiency numbers.
And what could a person do if wanting to build a home
server type machine where it would in fact be on 24/7
and recording TV programs off air, etc? How to keep it
Or.... can I just BUY something already low power out
Should use about 50W max when recording, less than 5W when not. -Dave
