a4-5000 is the System-o hip which means it has all cpu gpu and north and south bridge integrated. if its rated 15w it means all thisrequire only 15w.Intel cpu not only requires additional south bridge which alone takes few watss,but comparative real power measure tests has showed it consmues about 10w than kabini netbook, so your comparisions is not only right but unfair
