As an aside — how much power consumption are we talking about here? I know that any un-needed consumption should be avoided, but compared to the fan in my furnace/air conditioning (which runs all day) and the pump for my pool (runs May to September), is the difference between a PC and a NAS device really material?

I always thought a mini probably wasn’t too bad power consumption-wise. Seems like it’s a laptop design anyway, which is pretty low power.

Was thinking about something along the same lines myself, actually.
