It requires significant energy to manufacture and deploy computational devices. Traditional discussions of the energy-efficiency of compute measure operational energy, i.e.\ how many FLOPS in a 50\,MW datacenter. However, if we consider the true lifetime energy use of modern devices, the majority actually comes not from runtime use but from manufacture and deployment. In this paper, then, we suggest that perhaps the most climate-impactful action we can take is to extend the service lifetime ofarXiv:2110.06870v1 fatcat:my3tz5yg2vdpzeb4jvpyvmkooe
