Ever since moving out of the familial home I’ve turned into a right electricity tyrant. No light goes unswitched, no appliance left active without due cause; there’s something about footing your own bills that makes you pretty damn keen on saving power. And so the thought of a 1,000W PSU fills me not with geeky joy but a sickening sense of watching paper money burn on a tiny fire.
Yes, with a Galaxy DXX you could simultaneously power twenty-four of your favourite hard-drives, but won’t somebody think of the dozen pandas you’d have to shovel into the furnaces every few minutes to supply all the electricity? I fear we’ll see a demonstration of Greenpeace activists barricading computer stores on its 27th January launch.
