Fujitsu Offers World's Smallest, Quietest, Most Energy-Efficient Server.

Lower noise levels. The PRIMERGY TX120 produces 28 decibels (dB) while idling and 31 dB in operation, approximately 50 percent lower than standard tower servers. Less energy consumption. Running in its maximum configuration, the PRIMERGY TX120 consumes between 35 and 40 percent less energy than standard tower servers, saving approximately $100 per server per year (1). At full load, equipped with the Dual-Core Intel(R) Xeon(R) UP processor, maximum power consumption is a mere 163 watts.

Virtually silent operation

Now, if it only ran Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server I would buy it!

Seems nice but it still would be too loud to keep in same room where you sleep. Making that thing quiet would be hard. But still nice to see that low-power is comming to servers aswell.

While the max power consumption numbers are somewhat interesting, it would be nice to know what configuration they used to get that number.

Notably absent are idle power numbers as well.

Well....yeah , but...

"server" does not al;ways mean a lot of power-capacity. There's an ITX mobo that runs a Geode 1.4 GHZ at 18 W and I'd bet it's possible to do it with VERY minimal fan RPMs. Put a 500 G Spinpoint in an eSATA external and you move the HDD chatter to 6' away---could even mod that for suspension-silencing. Your main unit is then 10" x10" x 5" and the external HDD is smaller.

Worlds Smallest-Quietest etc sort of depends on the relative workload. Obviously dual dual core Xeons can do way more volume-speed than a lone Geode....but either can be a functioning server and 163 w vs 18 w is no contest.
