I wonder what they're planning to break
So we'll get really dim monitors, or be stuck with Celeron-quality processors, or what? Or must the computer turn itself off after 3 minutes of inactivity? Technology MAY be up to providing computers that work right and meet these power requirements of theirs, but I'm not betting on it.
We have some "energy saving" printers, too. They turn themselves off (and cool down) after a few minutes of not being used. So if you want to print something, you send your job to the printer, go over to it, and wait. And wait. And wait a bit more while it warms back up. So the state (yes, it's a government office) saves $00.0000000001 worth of electricity and wastes $2.00 worth of someone's time forcing them to wank around waiting for a printout. Typical government "efficiency."
