D&D ftw!  Very Happy

@vov: I know, but your 750 watt ps will still draw more than 380 if you're using it for what it's built for.

There are a lot of netbooks available from people like Asus, HP, etc.  It'll take more looking into (and probably its own thread) but I think it's a better option than 15-20 huge gaming comps (plus, you'll never get a gaming comp that runs on 130-160 watts, sorry).

... didn't you say average comp? those run on ~200 W... and yeah, I am using my ps for its use... just not constantly running my system at full clock, that means less power consumption.

I thought wikipedia would be more helpful, but it brings up the point of heating:
"The kilowatt (symbol: kW), equal to one thousand watts, is typically used to state the power output of engines and the power consumption of tools and machines. A kilowatt is approximately equivalent to 1.34 horsepower. An electric heater with one heating element might use 1 kilowatt."

None of those are really more cost effective than the Chipisto from velacreations.com.  The Chipisto only cost $100 but it produces 100 watts.  Those produce 600 watts and cost $600 so their about equal.  Maybe though if we just buy the generator, which was about $350, we can make a turbine that works as well as theirs and is cheaper.
