Or am I missing something here? that may be the PSU rating, but 55W active is more typical, and thats with 4 3TB 7200rpm SATA drives. btw, those AMD Neo CPUs are no slouches, they seem quite a bit faster than the equivalent Intel Atom processors. I have a N40L with 8GB ram and 4 x 3TB running FreeNAS off a 4GB USB stick (internal), runs quite nicely. 8.1TB (binary) usable with ZFS raidz... its functioning as my home SMB and Media server, I get a consistent 80MB/second reading/writing large files from a windows desktop -> freeNAS using windows file sharing over gigE, thats about as good as it gets (the SATA drive on my desktop formatted NTFS probably isn't much faster).
