Default 1012 Power consumption - 08-22-2010, 06:04 AM

What's the average power consumption for the 1012 netbooks? 5 watts? 15 watts? 45 watts? or 65 watts? What do you think!?

I've measured the adaptor's power consumption is about 21W. This value is without battery charge, just use.

If I recall correctly, mine's below 15W normally. But when it's charging, more like 30W.
