Everyday you are using your computer, you are essentially using electricity. Alternating current to be precise (AC), some countries use 120VAC, while EU use 230VAC just so they can feel more powerful. Regardless on average these are your kW usage stats:
11.02 KWh x $0.28/KWh = $3.08 per week
We can then estimate a yearly figure ($3.08 x 52 weeks/year) of $160.16 per year.
Trashcan (Recycle bin) are dangerous.
Fan noise level can vary depending on your rig. Ranges anywhere from 40dB to 60dB. Source
Please join me in this movement, and meet up at our local university to run our programs with punch cards. We can take a coffee or two while we wait for the results. Provided they were no bugs in your program.
