I don't know about you but, my wife isn't so keen on me unplugging the
fridge to fire up an Onyx2. I could maybe get away with the dryer in
the garage for a few minutes but, what is the point ? If you intend to
actually use these things you need a dedicated line. That takes skill or
My point about this was really that those that "would love a Onyx2"
might think about if they could actually run one. Lots of people in this
list don't have the facilities, money, or experience to run something
drawing that much current. Its not like many other deskside servers. It
draws a ton of power. The deskside form factor is deceiving. I just
wanted to warn people before they burned their parents house down with
some free computer they got off the rescue list.
