Just saw this:
well its a super computer isn't it...
I'd imagine that Electricity companies will GIVE the things away!
doesnt my G5 desktop use 1000W?
Funny...I calculate about $27 per year increase in electric cost.
.38kW * 2 hours * 365 days = 277.4 kWh per year.
Average cost of electricity in US = $0.098/kWh.
Yeah, I doubt most PS3 owners will spend more than two hours EVERY DAY using it. And why the hell would you use it to surf the web?
More like 350 or so, the psu's are built to accommodate peak power requirements if you maxed the thing out, most g5's has 650w psu's apart from the singles with 450's.
Not everybody gets cheap hydro power from the Pacific Northwest. Here in Norther California, PG&E's residential baseline rate is $0.114/kWh, going quickly up to $0.37/kWh based on usage. If I'd turn on a PS3 in my house, the electricity it uses will be in the $0.32227/kWh bracket. Using the above numbers, that comes out to about $90/year.
It can, but you'll never reach it
Well, presumably it doesn't use max power when watching DVDs, as the article assumed.
Off topic here, is there anything else we want to *itch about the PS3? It seems this fourm keeps smashing the ps3 with all its flaws and stuff and please dont flame me about the ps3. I waited in line for a wii and have both of them.
Love my iMac and Powerbook. Low wattage all round
When I found out about how much watts my iMac used I decided to go semi-Eco crazy. replaced all my lights with halogens and power savers, turn them all off when not in use. turn everything off now when not in use!
Good thing I'm never going to get a PS3
You mean with everything they *ucked up in recent years we're supposed to not complain? Everyone shh! No bad mouthing any companies who *uck up!
Oo, can I join the *lub?
*ou're *ore *han *elcome.
380W is the MORE than average then the normal computer?! WTF?! My computer must be running a city then. It needs 500W or else it dies. 650W PSU FTW!
Im not saying that we should shut up about sony problems but there are problems on other systems too except for MBP 17".
i wonder how much my mac pro uses?
any chance to rip ona PS3 huh clayj?
Why not just make one thread, titled "Clayj's I hate the PS3, Sony suxxor, ROTFL MS Roxx-my-Soxx Thread" and slam the PS3 there? Jimmi can post along with you...
but why I respond I don't know...
This is why I choose a 12 inch 45 watt PowerBook G4. It's also why I choose XBOX 360.
I don't hate the PS3. And I don't hate Sony.
I just think it's funny to hear how badly they've messed things up. Little bit of schadenfreude to lighten up the day...
i guess no one knows...
Did the PS or PS2 have nearly as much problems as are being reported for the PS3?
