If you are interested in low power, high performance systems, check this out: http://ssj3gohan.tweakblogs.net/blog/8217/fluffy2-59-watt-high-end-desktop-computer.html

5.9W idle for a quad-core Ivy Bridge desktop system.

For the average person (i.e. non-engineer), 15-17W would have been more realistic for a similar system with a hard drive plus SSD.
