     Power consumption is highly variable.  Older machines can draw
110-150W (or less), but the current, high-end desktops (with monitor)
with high-performance graphics cards can easily draw 300W++ (actually, I
suspect that this number is too low).  Older Celeron-based boxes without
monitor can draw ~70W.  Desktop boxes (w/o monitor) using a mobile
Athlon XP-M CPU can draw <~90W.  And, as you've said, a Soekris box will
draw ~10W.
