Sust-it is a website that annually maintains a list of the computers that have the lowest power consumption and lowest carbon dioxide production, thus revealing which computer is the best contributor to preserving the environment. This year, Sust-it has revealed that Apple’s Mac mini leads that list .
Not only that, but the various models of Mac mini are all in the top 4 on the list. The first is the 2 GHz model, which only consumes 0.94W when off, 1.71W when idle and 12.6W when on . These are low values, but higher than those promised by Apple in its environmental section.
More Apple models on the Sust-it lists: MacBook Air ranks second on the list of lowest consuming laptops and iMac lags behind, ranking sixth behind some equivalent Acer, MSI, and Asus computers. So if you want a Mac but are looking at details such as power consumption, it seems that Mac mini is your choice. However, you have to take into account the consumption of the monitor you want to add to that computer.
