Does notebook ram use less power than desktop ram?
I was wondering if notebook ram uses less power than desktop ram. People seem to be saying that their carpcs can be left on standby for only ~1 week, and they use desktop ram. This is it being powered from a car battery.
My Inspiron 6400 notebook has two sticks of 1GB ram and when left on standby with the AC unplugged, the battery drain is very small when left for a day. I think it was less than 10% drain for 24 hours. I suspect it can last atleast a week being on battery alone. So my guess is if I were to power it from the car battery and remove a stick of ram, my standby times would be so long that it wouldnt even be a concern. Is this a valid assumption?
