core 65nm processors, the processors only available in limited quantities. Expect mass availability in Q1’2007.

Nice numbers. Those 20W cited is in reality more of the conservative estimate than not.
Provided those $5 a year you got means $20 for amchine lifetime. Add another $30 saved on board and one suddently has $50 difference on hand for $800 complete machine.
Also this is in fact the lowest possible benefit one would see.
I could tell, in summer (35C outside) the lower-heat machines will be far more reliable.
It should be noted however, that similar saving are posible also by choice of better PSU. However I preffer both 80%+ PSU with active PFC and low-power components.
