A laptop-the energy drawn by a laptop computer is only 10 to 15 percent of the energy drawn by a conventional desktop computer and monitor. according to the us department of energys office of energy efficiency and renewable energy (eere) website, if an additional 1 percent of computers purchased this year were laptops instead of desktops, the annual energy saved could total nearly 150 million kilowatt hours. that energy savings would deliver enough electricity to power 14,000 us households for a whole year.besides being more energy-efficient, laptops have the additional advantage of being light and portable :)
