Random trivia of the day: The Wii draws less power (~18W) than the average energy-saving light bulb (~20W), and the Gamecube (~22W). For comparision, the PS2 takes ~30W, the PS3 takes ~190W, the 360 wants a bit less at ~180W and a reasonable gaming PC will take anything from 150W to upwards of 300W.

Standby power's a watt or two with the lot, though the Wii does draw 10W if you have WiiConnect 24 on.
