Hi all, I am interested in finding out the possible range of power consumption on modern laptops. specifically apple, but i have a feeling there is not much range there. has anyone tried to maximize power consumption instead of performance? I don't mean setting energy usage in control panel, but rather specific component upgrades (or in this case maybe downgrades) like memory, hard drive, a certain processor, etc. The screen is of course the biggest consumer of wattage, any ideas which consumes the least? I would love to get a machine that runs closer to 40W than the 65-80 of recent mac laptops. this would make it more possible to run the laptop off of solar panels while travelling. are any of you aware of how this might be done in the pc world. i am very unfamiliar with the technology over there. thank you, and i will repost here any progress i make.
