I'll jump in on this power-consumption silliness, just because I'm procrastinating.
Almost exactly 3 years ago I did a 3-hour gig on an EEE using battery power. Unintentionally-- I thought I'd plugged in my netbook but I hadn't, and didn't discover it had been unplugged until I was packing up after the gig.
No problem, and I still had tons of battery left.
I was running an Ingo RT kernel, jackd, linuxsampler with a huge piano sample library, bunch of LADSPA plugins, fluidsynth, and probably some other stuff as well.
It was a duo gig-- me and a drummer-- and if anything had messed up I'd certainly have known it. Nothing did.
Yeah, anecdotes are not data, but still, neither is what this klang guy is on about.
