Hi everybody, this is not realy technical "problem" question. Im using PC
(celeron 333, 64MB, 20GB, 2xNIC) ...none monitor, keybord, mouse.

So, im measuring the current which use my PC (230V / 0.15A). ...so it should
be P=U * I * cos (fi) = 230 * 0.15 * 0.76 = 26.2 W.
...I read that average consumption for PC is 110 - 150 W (max. 3 PCI cards).

That is quite big differences 26W to 110W.  ..Is my calculation OK ?

(m0n0 will work on my friend roof, so i want pay him all expenses for
energy)
