A Question About Power Consumption
Using the Internet, I can listen to radio station programs (streamed) from
cities and formats that I cannot pick up even on my table radio. I have a
Dell Inspiron 1521 laptop, nearly always plugged into AC power. When I listen
to a favorite radio station on my computer, I turn off the video screen.

My question is, approximately how much electrical power am I consuming by
using my computer for radio listening, compared to my conventional table
radio? If such a comparison cannot be made, can you compare my computer's
consumption to a conventional light-bulb wattage? (Eg. it's comparable to a
60 watt bulb).

Thanks so much for your assistance!

Hi robert,First of all you can not compair cpu usage on watts.Its hard to
measure as cpu fluctuates with its usage so its not measurble.But an awnser
to your qestion is around 1 qurter of a full qurter your cpu usage that
includes the programs runing in the background.
