    Where you laptop's power goes....

    The image below was produced by MS Windows 7 engineers to proportionally show where the average laptop uses its energy.

    I thought I'd share.

    Interesting. Thanks. The chip set takes more than I thought. I wonder if the networking includes wifi cards? With my windows mobile phone if I turn wifi on it kills the battery pretty quick. So I would have thought wifi is a significant proportion of the energy used.

    I'm guessing network is ethernet, I'd imagine WiFi uses more as I have the same issues as you, WiFi drains the phone.

    This is very helpful, but it is does not facilitate wifi cards, which I expect would take a good propertion of the pie chart (I'd say between 10 - 15%)
