While utilizing onboard graphics does in fact decease the overall energy consumption of a pc (most store bought PCs that aren't geared towards gamers use onboard graphics anyway), a low power processor actually utilizes about the same amount of electricity as any other when running idle - which is most of the time. There is nothing else remotely "green" about this PC, or any other PC. In fact, it is said that most of the energy expended by a PC is in manufacturing.
