It has nothing to do with power. http://www.macworld.co.uk/mac/news/?newsid=3423807 It's supposedly a fan thing. The reason I'm confident that it's unrelated to power consumption is that it's not the most power hungry of all workstations. Sandy Bridge E machines are extremely power hungry. Anyway the focus on energy efficiency in electronics is there either way. Mobile devices have been a huge point of growth, and it is a huge factor there.
