Update on a recent post on G4 energy draw : According to a fellow posting in a MacNN thread, the LinkSys probably consumes around 32 watts and my DSL modem around the same. The Studio Display draws 40W in use and 10 W asleep. So that’s between 60 and 95W delta between this rig and the Pentium we spot tested at the solar joint (I had mistakenly assumed that the modem and router would draw next to nothing). That means that if I could borrow the Watts Up again and hook up just the Mac, it would probably draw less power than the Pentium after all. All moot now – have decided not to move on alt.power before we buy a house.
