If you have this laptop, you should have it's charger. The charger will have the wattage (amperage and voltage) hidden in the small print on the bottom of the brick.

the power adapter supplied has a max draw of 180 watts

the normal power draw should be lower than 180 watts

The adapter will have a maximum, but for actual you can use a device like this one. You plug your laptop into it and then to the wall. Since it is in-between then it can tell how much is being used at any given time. Watts used is not a constant amount and will vary depending how much processing / use is being done on the laptop.
