Dell Monitor Energy Savings Calculator

Dell has a cool new Monitor Energy Savings Calculator for determining how much energy you will use/save with various monitors over their lifetimes.

This goes along Dell's launch of two new green monitors: the $349 24" G2410 LCD and the $239 22" G2210 LCD.

The G2410 uses 21W vs. 42W for a similarly sized non-green Dell S2409W saving $15 in electricity over a 5 year lifetime. Given that they are priced the same, the green guy comes out ahead. Well, not exactly as Dell currently has the S2409W on sale for $249. :) But, at least you now you take into account energy costs/usage when making your buying decision.
