My 3100 is an M38.
I think 1kW is too much. I was using an SGI Crimson for a few months
and it pulls 1-1.1kW on a 110 V 20A receptacle... (I had it on a
standard receptacle by putting a new plug on it). I'm really looking
for no more than 600W a machine and that's stretching things... NY
power is very expensive. For a while we were at 13 cents a kwH. I had
a $800 power bill for like 3 months with the crimson sucking juice. So
in short I want something that A. (I don't have to modify anything
voltage wise... no plug surgery, no wall plate surgery, etc.), B. is
less than or equal to a PC power supply that sucks 600 W... or a dual
PS that sucks 300 each.
