Hopefully these power consumption rumors turn out to be wrong. Whether people care about power consumption or not, at the current rate power is increasing we will quickly approach the point where it's simply not viable to draw more power.

A 15 amp 120v circuit maxes out at 1800w, and usually more than one outlet on a circuit. At 1000w power draw you're already at the point where having two computers on the same circuit will trip the breaker. Much about 1000w and you're starting to run into problems if anything else high powered is on that circuit with your computer, or if you have crappy wiring, etc.

And then there's the cooling issues...
