Re: Cheap UPS at Ebuyer




Well, the APC UPS on My Little Server (TM), is a 500VA one. With a 2GHz
Athlon, 512M RAM, 1 hard drive, no DVD/CD, no keyboard, no mouse, no
monitor, onboard VGA low performance graphics and NO MONITOR, it draws
about 65W on average and the runtime is about 29mins.

I'm guessing that big CPUs, big graphics, and monitors are going to
treble or quadruple the wattage and the runtime will drop accordingly.
