EMPLOYEE RESOURCES

ENERGY SAVINGS: A typical PC CPU uses between 40 and 150 watts of power. In addition to the monitor, which uses 75-100 watts a laser printer uses 50 watts.

PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO EVERYONE YOU CARE ABOUT! We see them nearly every day, e-mails with headlines like that telling stories just begging to be passed on. The vast majority, however, are hoaxes and urban legends. Passing them on to your friends and relatives clogs the Internet and e-mail servers. Before sending them on and contrib - uting to the problem, please check the site below for reputable resources to verify or debunk the stories. http://www.uni.edu/pubrel/urbanlegend.html
