Power meter readings

Laptop: 60W
PC: 120W for the CRT monitor, 90W for the base unit
Upstairs Routing hardware: 40W (cable modem, wireless router, Lex PC for linking with work)
Downstairs Routing hardware: 24W (Voip phone, hub, wireless bridge)

The question is, is my 64W x 24hr energy expenditure on homeworking equipment more than what I used to use commuting by train up to london every day ?

Bear in mind that, once you'd arrived in London, you still had to use a computer to do your work - although this is irrelevant if your desktop machine is actually a 24x7 server box, so would have been turned on anyway.

Interesting question.
