    Electricity is 15p per KwHour round here

    300w

    echo 'scale=3; 0.15 * 0.3 * 25 * 365' | bc

    410.625 pounds per year

    60w

    82.125 pounds per year

    for me it is less, but I think the argument counts

    you have a good point, though i assume you mean

    ; hoc
    0.15*0.300 * 24 * 365
    394.2
    0.15*0.060 * 24 * 365
    78.84

    300 watts is a hungry computer. all 6 of my machines
    here, including an 8-disk hot swappable monster, take
    ~550VA according to my apc. but then again, i have
    nothing but 80+-rated power supplies and a few 35w
    and 65w cpus.

    if power is that big a deal, it might make sense to
    buy specialized hardware. soekris come in at <20w.
    an old laptop can make a good low-power fs.
    portwell has a <20w atom-based mb with gbe.
    you could have a small fleet of those for 60 watts.
    turn off a couple of lightbulbs and tell yourself it's
    free. :-)

    my personal bias is toward speed and reilability.

    how much is it worth to you not to worry about your
    fs? for me it's worth a lot. even at $350/year, that's
    cheep data insurance to me.
