and overall it's an enjoyable notebook to use to say the least.

At worst, your system may draw 250 watts. But even that would require an exceptional amount of effort to pull off. (Running F@H, while playing Doom3, while defragging every hard drive, while burning a DVD. :lol:) Any decent 400watt PSU will do the job. But with 10 fans :shock: and 5 HDD's, why even...

Question on UPS units?

i can get an APC 350VA unit for 22 dollar, so that's relatively cheap, but 350VA isn't gonna last me long, well i don't know exactly how long it's gonna last, but 350VA sounds a little weak to me, So I wanna buy 2. Is that a good idea.
