Quick Tips

Quick Tip- Dump your desktop

Laptop’s use on average 90% less energy than the standard desktop.

If you work in an office consider hitting up your IT department for a laptop (hint: push the ‘I’ll be more productive cause I can work anywhere now!’ angle.)

If you still have a desktop at home think about how convenient it would be to cart your laptop to your backyard on a nice day or the local coffee shop when you have cabin fever.

  1. And big chunk of the power is used by the monitor, so even if you can’t junk the desktop you can save a lot by switching from a clunky old CRT to an LCD.

    This guy has some cool charts and stuff.
