PERFORMANCE DATA System Configuration
The Energy Consumption and Declared Noise Emissions data is based on a configuration including: Processor One AMD TL-60 2.0GHz Hard Drive(s) One 120 GB Power Supply(s) 65 Watt efficiency
Service Level *Maximum Idle ACPI-S3 Standby mode Off Low Power Mode disabled External Power Supply Energy Consumption (Wattage) 51.86 14.72 1.61 0.66 0.35 BTU Calculation 177.361 50.342 5.506 2.257 1.197 Description of Service Level The data provided is the highest wattage reading while running an Industry Benchmark suite of tests. As specified by the EPA Computer spec 4.0 or system is sitting at the main Windows screen. Suspend-to-RAM (low power mode) System is turned off with the Low power Mode feature disabled via the BIOS AC adapter connected to mains with system detached otherwise known as No-load condition
*Maximum Energy Consumption results are based solely upon the laboratory testing of the System Configuration listed above. Energy consumption is tested at 230 Volts / 50 Hz. Heat dissipation is calculated based on the measured watts, assuming the service level is attained for one hour. Off data is not meant to show compliance to US Executive Order 13221. When applicable, Dell product information related to US Executive Order 13221 may be obtained at: http://oahu.lbl.gov/index.html.
