I do recall some people bashing Cisco products for their power consumption
at a recent tech event I attended.  Granted, that event was 
Juniper-centric :)

Given the economic (rising power and cooling costs) and sometimes 
logistical (lack of power available in a facility) realities of operating 
networks and data centers, I'm sure everyone would love for their gear to 
draw less power.  How many watts could actually be saved remains to be 
seen...
