The other day I noticed that my Bolt I draws around 65-70 watts while browsing the web, out of curiosity I checked out the idle PS3 and it was at 160W Whoa

Around 205W, though I should state that I have a launch 60GB "fat" PS3 which pulled the most juice of all the models.

As Nav mentioned, I just used a Kill-A-Watt meter.
