Most of us take our PCs for granted, since they’re an essential bit of kit these days. How many of you consider power consumption when it comes to your computer (or any of your gadgets)? Compared to 5 years ago when being eco-friendly wasn’t quite so newsworthy, I’m willing to bet that these days, most of you do switch off gadgets when you’re not using them.
Well you might not have heard about a small revolution in low energy computers. These low power PCs are essentially standard computers that have a considerably low energy consumption compared to a standard desktop computer. A standard desktop computer consumes anywhere between 100W to 400W (maybe even more for really heavy duty gaming and processing). A low power PC consumes around 4W to 30W! Surprisingly, the latest energy efficient computers have comparable performance to regular desktop PCs too.
