Apple This is what we call an epic blunder of epic proportions. The article that used to be here, was submitted to us in full, with Tom Krazit as the submitter. As it turns out, though, this article is already published at, so it's pretty clear someone kindly submitted it to us, but included the whole of that article. For some reason, I let it slip through without checking if it was actually an original - which I normally always do. Nobody contacted us so far, but I'm still incredibly sorry about this.

We're shifting into a performance per watt paradigm. Software must get faster and less bloated for a time. Pressure from ARM has forced Intel and AMD to make energy efficient processors like the AMD E series & A6 and the newer Intel ATOM and i7 gen 2 chips. Even server chips are getting more efficient.

My laptop uses about 32 watts to run and it's a quad core AMD A6. That's a little over half an old fashioned light bulb.
