Using my laptop over my desktop can make a big difference, I save maybe £2.50 a week by having the laptop on 24/7 as opposed to the desktop.

What is the cost per unit in the USA? I've used an average cost of 9.38p per unit.
A 500W power supply running 24/7 in the UK would cost approx £1.13 ($2.13) per day. Which to me seems like a lot of money! That's just the computer as well, not the monitor. Although it won't be running at full whack for all that time so it should be less overall.

Laptop (IBM T30) + Desktop (Apple G4) + everything else in the apt. (fridge, tv, etc.) on 24x7 is only about $35/month for me.
Upgraded to the MacPro about 6 weeks ago, but I had decent air conditioner usage and was gone for a week, so the bill is all out of whack at $52.
