Additional Information

Notes

  1. Power consumption data (Watts) is measured from the wall power source and includes all power supply and system losses. Additional correction is not needed.
  2. "Max" is defined as the maximum possible power draw based on the computer's power supply rating.
  3. "Idle" reflects the power used with only Finder open, using the default power management settings.
