I am running Ubuntu Server 12.04 on an HP Mini 311. It has an Atom 270, 3GB ram, NVIDIA ION graphics. When running windows 7 with the screen off and no programs running the power consumtion from the wall was measured as 7-9W. With Ubuntu server running, with ACPI, powertop options good. the power consumption is 17-20W.
I realize this is a difficult question to answer, but give it your best shot. Does anyone know what the power consumption on a Dell T310 with two 400W redundant power supplies? I used to run two Power Edge 2900 towers in my basement but those things were awful on power, I am hoping the T310 will be a lot better.
