May be under a watt, but when you add the LCD, memory, etc. it starts to eat
power. Plus the power consumption of a Strongarm @ 206Mhz eats < 400mW.
OK, maybe a couple of AA's was optimistic, more like 4 ;)
With the Crusoe,which will take <1W by itself, plus extra power for memory
and LCD, (if you want to add a hard disk, you can forget long battery
times), a rechargeable Li-Ion would be the best way, but the best battery
life you would be seeing would be in the realms of the Colour WinCE

I thought that was part of the point - under a watt, for normal usage ?
