Got a energy/power measuring device, Energy Check 3000, from conrad.at.
Here are some results:
|Sony G520 (21" CRT)||80|
|Sony Vaio VGN-C1S/H||26 (idle) / 42 (load)|
Accuracy should be +/- 1 W.

Finally, the replacement battery (VGP-BPS2C) for my Vaio VGN-C1S/H arrived (8 month after I reported the defect).
Sony advertises the laptop with full 2 year guarantee; however, the guarantee does not cover consumable material which, in Sony's option, includes rechargeable batteries (as one learns from the guarantee statement inside the package; the Austria Sony website nevertheless has different terms and acknowledges guarantee for the rechargeable battery). Only within the first six month after purchase, the manufacturer is assumed to have supplied a product with manufacturing defects, the onus of proof reverses afterwards. Sony declined to replace the battery under warranty.
Thanks to Verein für Konsumenteninformation (VKI) for intervening successfully!

Angi brought something from Japan, an Aritsugu knife! The deba-style knife is single-sided and for filleting fish mainly.
