Comment on "Power Consumption in Game Consoles"
by Scott Stevenson — Dec 17
the wii itself takes a maximum of 3.7 amps at 12 volts thats 3.7*12= 45 Watt max

That's just the capacity of the electronics, correct? It doesn't mean the internal hardware is actually eating that much juice. At least that's my undestanding.

If what you say is correct, a Wii would eat just as much power as a dual-core 64-bit iMac with display, which doesn't sound right to me.
