Living Green, One Tip at a Time (a weekly feature)

Living Green, One Tip at a Time -

# 1 - When you purchase your next computer, consider buying a laptop -

When plugged in your laptop uses 50 percent less energy than a typical desktop computer and a whooping 99 percent less when running on battery power!!  That's a HUGE energy saving!!

Great to know about the energy saving. I'd love to have a laptop, someday. For now I guess, I'll just have to continue with my 'gas guzzler' of a PC!
Looking forward to the weekly energy saving tips.
