On the XO, YMMWV (your milage will vary) very, very greatly depending on
how the machine is being used (and how (im)mature our software is), much
more than most machines.

We have extensive measurements of what the individual pieces consume;
less good is the state of our power management, which is far from what
it needs to be due to insufficient resources (help greatfully accepted).

Note that some of this work is work that will help everyone's laptops;
and other parts requires hardware capabilities we have we've not seen
