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.

Truly a benefit using Win 7 over XP and Vista. Appears 7 is out shining past versions of the Windows OS's. :)

Windows 7 7100 build

Wow that really is a big difference.

Just think how much power will be saved when tons of people switch over to 7.

You can justify the purchase now saying that you are going "Green" and in order to do so you must upgrade to Windows 7!!
