In the market for a new computer device at home?
Compared to desktop or notebook computers, tablets are the most energy efficient choice for simple tasks such as browsing the Internet or streaming content because they were designed with this functionality in mind. In fact, tablets use significantly less energy than any other device you might use to stream videos.
When looking at metering data over time, an ENERGY STAR® certified slate uses 10 times less power to stream than a game console does. It uses 7 times less power than a television and 6 times less than a desktop computer and monitor.
