Laptops To Save On Energy Costs

Most laptops use approx. 30-40 watts of power, while desktops use approx 150-300 watts of power during moderate use + the power used for the screen. Many individuals leave their desktop PC's on at night and during the weekend. As today's laptops perform as well as desktops, cutting energy usage by switching everyone to laptops would save the government millions.
