I like old hardware

While working up my mail backlog in the train, i came across this mental masturbation by the Intel Linux folks on LKML.
Don't get me wrong, they are doing a great job with regard to saving power on Intel machines running Linux, and i am taking advantage of their work every day, when using my machines while on battery.
However, getting a recent machine from 21 Watts to 15 Watts may be nice, but my 3 years old nx5000 (Centrino 1, Pentium M 1400 MHz, 2 GB RAM) is only sucking about 11-12 Watts from its batteries without any tweaks.
So sometimes i am wondering what all that "technological progress" is
good for...
