Re: Not worth it

My Atom-based pfSense w/Compact Flash storage, gigabit LAN + WAN ports, and 1GB RAM draws 14-18 watts, depending on the situation. It's worth it to me as I can't find a similar spec'd device that can run Snort, multiple ipsec tunnels, NUT, and QOS without needing constant reboots. The only time I reboot it is after one of the infrequent firmware upgrades.

That makes more sense. A full Pentium system doesn't. The best would be one of those fanless VIA systems that you can get down to about 8 watts.
