Despite what many other commenters will say, no, it isn't a power hog compared to ARM. Or at least it doesn't have to be. Intel/AMD/VIA don't yet offer processors that have as low power as ARM (although some are pretty power/performance efficient depending on your workload), but they will within the next year for smartphones and tablets. On modern manufacturing processes the "x86 tax" becomes almost non-existant.
