The Zonbu sips power…

Web GreenAnother quick observation, as I know many are waiting to have this confirmed.

The Zonbu is one of the most miserly computers I’ve ever seen, when it comes to power consumption. I’ve seen it as high as 13W while booting, and as low as 6W while operational.

Non-scientifically (that would be me glancing at my Kill-a-watt meter randomly over the last hour), it seems to run between 9W-12W for the kinds of things I’m doing.

Impressive, to say the least.

    Nice. Even lower than the 15w that I think I read that Zonbu themselves claimed.

    I’m sure I can make it hit 15W but just futzing around I’m at 9W-13W.

    That’s crazy – my 65 W AC Adapter for my Dell uses 4 W when my computer is turned of and it’s battery is fully loaded, in other words when nothing is using it’s power.

    4 W of waste from an AC Adapter compared to 10 W for running a complete computer – that’s what I call putting something into perspective 🙂

    If I disconnect my AC Adapter for 2.5 hours I can run a Zonbu for 1 hour with the electricity I saved.

    Didn’t they state 20W? It seems to run 200% better than they even claimed :).
