Windows 7 energy saver OS
And fact is that Windows 7 has Vista beat in every aspect, so why not also energy consumption. According to PCMag, while Windows 7 consumes 16.53 watts when playing back the DVD, Vista SP2 ate 18.35 watts, 11% more.
Microsoft and Intel also compared Windows 7 with Windows XP. The two companies used a couple of identical ThinkPads T400s with the same configurations, except that one was running XP SP2 while the other Windows 7 RTM. According to the data made public, the XP SP2 machine swallowed an average of 20.2 watts. The Windows 7 computer was satiated at just 15.4 watts. For the end user, the difference translates into almost one hour and a half of extra battery life.
